When purchasing beer to use in a "Beer Batter" be sure that you something like a Lager, or Guinness. The light beers just won't taste right, and will keep the batter real heavy.
4. Let the batter rest for about 1/2 hour while the oil is heating up.
5. Separate the joints of the wings, making "Flappers" and Drumettes"
6. Rinse the wings in cold water, then dry them real well. Any water that's left on them will make the oil spit and spatter as you place the wings in it.
7. Heat oil, in a large pot, to 350 degrees.
8. Place the bowls of the dry mix, and the batter close to each other.
9. Place the wings in the dry mix, and coat well.
10. Shake off any excess, dip in the batter, then gently place in the hot oil. Continue until you've got enough wings in the pot. Too many will cool down the oil to quickly and they'll stick.
11. Cook for a total of 15 - 20 minutes turning only once. Keep an eye on the ends (where the bone comes out) for blood. It will start to show as they are getting ready to be turned. And, by the time they're cooked through, you won't see it any more.
12. Place the cooked wings in a big bowl then add sauce, toss, and serve immediately.
