  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.
  2. Wash the wings well and pat dry with paper towel. Season the meat with cayenne, salt, and pepper.
  3. Cook the chicken wings on preheated grill until cooked through and juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the wings. Brush the wings liberally using 1/2 cup of honey while they are cooking.
  4. Melt the butter, pour into a large bowl and mix in the remaining 1/2 cup of honey and hot sauce. Remove the wings from the grill and immediately toss them in the hot honey butter sauce to coat. Serve the wings 'wet' or return them to the grill for 1 minute per side to set the sauce.

Oh my goodness, this was so good. I put them in the deep fryer for 15 minutes because we like crispy wings, and then put them in the oven with the honey for 15 more minutes. Put the sauce on a...

I baked these at 350 for about 50 minutes (my oven doesn't get that hot though). Honey goes well with the hot sauce. I will make it a little hotter next time!

My husband made these last night on his own. He cooked them in the oven, 425* for almost 45 minutes. This recipe is one of the best wing recipes we've ever had. Absolutely delicious!

YES!! I had these wings years ago at a Detroit restaurant when I visited there and, I wanted this recipe so bad I couldn't stand it (the restaurant owners wouldn't give it to me...family secret ...

I added minced garlic. Possible to use half the honey and still get the desired level of sweetness. Often requested at the fire station.

We loved these. I did half the amount of hot sauce (Frank's) because we have young children that are not fans of spicy things (yet!) and they still had a very small bite to them that the kids we...

These are the best. I grill them every Sunday when the Cleveland Browns are playing. They are so good I was compelled to take a picture of them. Which I hope everyone enjoys. It show how wonderf...
