Cola Hot Wings

These delectable wings are so easy to make, and they offer year-round versatility, from summer cookouts to autumn tailgates. My husband likes them so much he'll stand out in the snow to grill them! —Lisa Linville, Randolph, Nebraska

    We tried this recipe for the 4th of July and found it to be good with a kick from the hot sauce. It did not have quite the glaze that I was looking for but everyone enjoyed them.

    These were tender and flavorful but needed a bit more kick.

    This isn't anything special. The blue cheese dipping-sauce was the most flavorful part.

    Wings were ok. I have much better wing recipes. May try again with some adjustments.

    I never knew basting without marinading could be so flavorful! Spicy and sweet. Yum.

    This was a great recipe! I substituted the wings for chicken breast strips and grilled directly on the grill and it was great! My husband and his family all loved it too and they are definitely picky eaters!
