I love the flats too and since TB likes the drumettes, we get along fine!
Chief, your wings sound mighty tasty!
I have developed a recipe that we love. I make it with all-purpose gluten free flour, but regular flour is fine too.
2 tbsp hot sauce
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp each salt and pepper
coat 2 lbs of wings with this mixture and marinate covered, overnight in the fridge or on the counter for a half hour or so.
dredge in 1 cup flour (I actually just pour the flour over them in the bowl and mix them up by hand. It works great with GF flour)
Lay wings on an oiled cookie sheet and spray (recommended) or drizzle with oil. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, turn over, and bake for another 10 - 15 minutes or until done.
These wings are not too hot and really crispy good.
