3 Lbs Chicken wings
4 Cups buttermilk
1/2 Cup lard
1 Cup flour

Master Spice Mix
1/2 cup cayenne
6 Tbsp. Dried minced onion(or onion powder)
6 Tbsp. Dried minced garlic (or garlic powder)
6 Tbsp. Paprika
4 Tbsp. Brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Black pepper

PREPARATION

Mix all master spice mix ingredients and separate into 3 equal portions.

In a large bowl combine 1/3 master spice mix and 4 cups buttermilk, and 3 lbs chicken wings. Cover and chill for as long as possible. 4 hours to overnight.

Rinse the brined wing pieces and pat dry.

Mix 1 cup of flour with another 1/3 of the master spice mix. Dredge the chicken wing pieces in the flour/spice mixture, shaking off any excess. Set aside.

Heat your oil to 325˚ F / 170˚ C

Fry your wings for 8-10 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165˚F. The wings will splatter so its a good idea to have a lid nearby! Take the wings out and drain on a paper bag or paper towels.

Place 1/2 cup of lard in a saucepan and sprinkle over the last 1/3 of your master spice mix. Once the lard is melted and warm, stir the mixture and take it off the heat. Immediately baste your fried wings with the lard/spice mix and serve immediately. All Tasty music provided by Audio Network and Warner Chappell Inc. Used with permission
