Suicidal Wings, or Remembering The 'Nest

When buffalo wings are in the zone, they should be just too spicy to eat, but too good to stop eating. 

I'm pleased my pantry recipe does justice to my memories of 'suicidal' wings from the old  Cuckoo's Nest Restaurant in Powderhouse Square.   It's 2 parts Texas Pete's hot sauce to 1 part sriracha sauce, plus a little olive oil. Jointed wings should be fried for at least 20 minutes, until really crispy and most of the fat has rendered out. I have no patience for soft or soggy wings.   Sauce liberally, toss well, serve immediately.
