1.Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
2.Heat up a pot of boiling water, big enough to hold the wings. Season the water with salt, if desired.
3.Boil the wings for 7-8 minutes.
4.Remove and place on wire rack on baking sheet.
5.Season the wings however you like and bake for 30 minutes on one side, then flip and bake for another 10 minutes.
6.In a small saucepan, heat the hot sauce and butter. Toss the hot wings in the sauce, and serve immediately.
7 Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or dressing. I prefer Blue Cheese.
A note on hot sauce
I like Texas Pete hot sauce but it can be hard to find in my area. Frank's Red Hot is a good alternative.
If you like Texas Pete on your wings try it in your next Bloody Mary.
