Buffalo Wing Marinade

This Buffalo wing marinade recipe makes for good, moist wings, whether you cook your wings in the oven, grill them, or as I usually do, make them on the Char-Broil Big Easy using my Wingin’ator 3000 modification. The marinade really gives the wings a great spicy flavor without having to sauce them after they are cooked. And even if you do still sauce them, you’ll get flavor all the way through each bite. Not just on the outside.
