buffalo chicken wings

Wanna make the summer a little hotter??
How 'bout a little spicier??

A great alternative to plain ole barbeque, who doesn't like buffalo wings??
And don't worry, you can make them as spicy or as mild as you'd like!
Just monitor the amount of Tabasco ;)

Buffalo Chicken Wings
Serves 4.
From Alton Brown.
12 whole chicken wings 
3 ounces unsalted butter 
1 small clove garlic, minced 
1/4 cup hot sauce 
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Place a spaghetti pot with a steamer basket and 1" of water in the bottom, over high heat, cover and bring to a boil.

Remove the tips of the wings and discard or save for making stock. Using kitchen shears, or a knife, separate the wings at the joint. Place the wings into the steamer basket, cover, reduce the heat to medium and steam for 10 minutes. Remove the wings from the basket and carefully pat dry. Lay the wings out on a cooling rack set in a sheet pan lined with paper towels and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. 

Preheat the oven to 425*.

Replace the paper towels with parchment paper or foil. Roast on the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Turn the wings over and cook another 20 minutes or until meat is cooked through and the skin is golden brown.

While the chicken is roasting, melt the butter in a small bowl along with the garlic. Pour this along with hot sauce and salt into a bowl large enough to hold all of the chicken and stir to combine.

Remove the wings from the oven and transfer to the bowl and toss with the sauce. Serve hot with Ranch and enjoy!
