Buffalo Chicken Wings

Here is the original recipe created by Ms. Teresa Bellissimo,
owner of the Anchor Bar and Restaurant, in Buffalo, NY. It is
taken from Totally Hot! The Ultimate Hot Pepper Cookbook.

4 to 5 Lbs Chicken wings
Freshly ground black pepper
Salt (if desired)
4 C Vegetable Oil
4 TBS butter or margarine (1/2 stick)
5 TBS Louisiana-brand hot sauce or Tabasco sauce
1 TBS white wine vinegar

Chop off the tip of each chicken wing, and discard it. Chop the
wing in half (cutting at the joint) to make pieces. Grind on
fresh black pepper and sprinkle with salt if desired. Heat the
oil over high heat in a deep skillet, Dutch oven, or deep-fat
fryer until it starts to pop and sizzle (around 400 degrees F).
Add half the chicken wings and cook until they're golden and
crisp, stirring or shaking occasionally. When done, remove them
to drain on paper towels and cook the remaining wings.
Melt the butter or margarine over medium heat in a heavy
saucepan, add the hot sauce and the 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
Stir well and remove from the flameimmediately.  Place the
chicken on a warm serving platter, pour the sauce on
top, and serve.
