Some of the Best Hot Wings

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp salt
30 chicken wing pieces
vegetable oil for frying

Combine the flour, paprika, cayenne powder, and salt in a small bowl.  If the wings are frozen, be sure to defrost and dry them.  Put the wings in a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them, coating each wing evenly.  Put the wings in the refrigerator 60-90 minutes.  This will help the  breading to stick to the wings when fried.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees.  You want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely.

Combine the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat.  Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well-blended.

Put all the wings in the hot oil and fry 10 - 15 minutes (I usually do 8 wings at a time for 13 minutes).  Fry until wings are medium brown.  Remove from the oil to a paper towel to drain.  Don't let them sit too long, because you want to serve them hot.  Quickly put the wings in a large bowl.  Add the hot sauce and stir, coating all of the wings evenly.
