It works something like this:
- 4 cups water
- 3 tablespoons salt
- 3 tablespoons red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
Combine the vinegar and pepper flakes. Combine the water and the salt. Add the pepper flake and vinegar mixture to the brine solution. Add up to 1 pound of chicken wings. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours. Remove chicken wings from brine and grill.
The amazing thing about this method is that the wings will be hot. Not overpoweringly spicy, but definitely hot. From here you can add your own sauce, seasoning or just leave them the way they are. It's a great way to make great chicken wings.
