Ingredients

Wings:

  • 24 chicken wings broken down into wings and drummettes, tips discarded
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Oil for frying

Sauce:

  • 1 cup Frank's hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 garlic clove grated with a microplane (or crushed garlic)
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles

Instructions

Wings:

  • Fill a dutch oven (or heavy bottomed large pot) with 2 to 3-inches of oil. Place the pot over medium-high heat and get the oil hot. Prep your grill and get it nice and hot. (We had Sean's propane grill turned to medium-high heat.)
  • Put flour, salt, and pepper in a gallon sized Ziploc bag. Close the bag and give it a shake to combine everything. Add wings to the bag, and seal closed. Shake the bag to evenly coat the wings in the flour.
  • Carefully drop the wings into the hot oil (You'll need to work in batches to prevent overcrowding in the pot. I fry about 6 to 8 wings at a time, depending on the size of the pot.) Cook for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the wings are cooked through and the skin is golden brown. Remove wings to a paper towel-lined plate.

Sauce:

  • Melt the butter in a medium bowl. Pour in the hot sauce and whisk to combine. Add in the garlic and blue cheese crumbles, and stir together.
  • Place the wings in a new gallon Ziploc bag, and pour the sauce over the wings. Seal the bag and smush everything together until the wings are well coated.
  • Using a pair of tongs, place the wings on the hot grill.
  • Cook for 7 to 10 minutes, turning once until the sauce has sealed onto the wings, the cheese is soft, and the wings are nice are slightly charred.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

You can use your favorite hot sauce instead of Frank's, but Frank's is the only one for me. :)
