1 quart Texas Pete Hot Sauce
1 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon granulated onion
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
2 tablespoons thyme leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
28 chicken wings, split
Mix Texas Pete Hot Sauce and all the spices; set aside.
Clean and split the chicken wings. Pour the sauce over and bake in oven for 1 hour at 300 degrees F.
Remove the chicken from the sauce and place on rack above a paper lined sheet tray. Return to oven and cook until chicken has a dry-like appearance. Then baste with sauce and return to oven. Repeat this step until sauce is used up. When half the sauce is used, try a wing and see if it is the flavor you want. (this halfway point will smack your mouth and finish with a mild slow burn. This is what I call “red fire” appearance).
If wanting the real thing, continue until sauce is gone. The chicken will have what I call a” black fire” appearance. At this point in the process it will grab your lips and attempt to rip them off and then finish off with a pleasant medium hot slow burn.
If you want, you can try marinating them in the sauce overnight then cooking. It gives a full deeper flavor. Not as hot this way.
This was in the making over a 5 1/2 year period. One taste and you will limit who you give them to or eat all of them yourself.
