    1. IT WAS AWESOME!!!! I totally cleaned my plate with this one. This recipe had some kick to it with the cayenne!!! I WANT MORE!!! ~Sean

    2. Wings are one of my favorite foods to eat ever and I have never had wings this good before!!! The meat literally fell off the bone!! They were so tender I was able to eat them with a fork, and pull the meat off the bone with ease!!! The sauce was delicious, and there was no need for any ranch or bleu cheese!!! Great job with the recipe!!!!

    3. Morganism made this recipe. ONE OF THE BEST wing recipes I have ever had. Stubbs BBQ was fantastic but with the added spices it was even better. I have never had wings cooked in a crock before....the meat just fell off the bone....DELICIOSO!!!

    4. After eating these wings made by Morgan I seriously thought about getting a straw, bellying up to the Crock-Pot, and going to town! She spiced it up with some crushed red pepper and cayenne and that really put these wings over the edge, since I really don't like BBQ wings that much. Like Javier said, they just fell off the bone!

    5. Just made these again last night, only I substituted Stubb's for Publix brand Hickory BBQ sauce! RIDIC!!
