Daddy’s Hot Wings

One of the things I cherish most in my kitchen is a hand-written recipe for hot wings which came from my Dad.  It’s been a while since we’ve cooked them and today seemed like a perfect day.  Everyone was worn out from a day of swimming and it was nice to have these little gems marinating in the fridge and grill-ready in minutes.  They are great served with Hot Slaw.


5 lbs chicken wings (thaw if frozen)

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup seasoning (equal parts paprika, ground black pepper, salt)

1 stick butter, melted

1 Tablespoon tabasco sauce

1/4 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce

Rinse wings and place in a large zip lock bag.  Add the vinegar and toss to coat.  Add the seasoning and toss to coat.  Let the wings marinate in the fridge for a few hours, turning once or twice.  Grill for about 20 minutes (we cooked them at 250 degrees on a gas grill and it took about 30 minutes)

Combine the melted butter and tabasco sauce and hot sauce.  Use this to baste the wings the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
