Barbecued Hot Wings
- Category: Appetizers
- Servings: 6-8
- 12 whole chicken wings (about 2½ pounds)*
- 1 bottle (8 ounces) Italian salad dressing
- 1/2-3/4 cup hot pepper sauce
- 1/8-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tips. In a bowl, combine salad dressing, hot pepper sauce and cayenne. Remove 1/2 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Place remaining sauce in a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass dish; add chicken and turn to coat. Seal or cover and refrigerate overnight. Drain and discard the marinade.
Grill wings, covered, over medium heat for 12-16 minutes, turning occasionally. Add butter to the reserved sauce; brush over wings. Grill, uncovered, 8–10 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times.
* 2½ pounds of uncooked chicken wing sections may be substituted for the whole chicken wings. Omit first step of the recipe.
