Split the wings at each joint and discard tips. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat with minced garlic. (Finely minced shallots or onions may optionally be added at the same time as the garlic.) If you prefer a smoother sauce, a stick blender may be used to smooth it out and blend in the flavors of the garlic, etc. When the garlic is a golden color, stir in the hot sauce. Add a pinch of salt.
When the oil is the correct temperature carefully lower the wings into the hot oil using a slotted spoon or wire basket, and deep fry for about 12 minutes, or until wings are cooked and crispy.
Drain on paper towels. Toss with the hot sauce, coating several times to cover well.
Time to Prepare: 1 hour

I serve these with carrot stcks, celery and either Ranch dressing or Blue Cheese dressing
Angel - Something else to try... I've just baked wings in the oven before, seasoned with Season Salt, 400 degrees for about 45 minutes, and then serve with sauces.
