Bryan's Buffalo Wings

Another Ode to Super Bowl.  This recipe is from Bryan Pelton, our old manager at REI, now the store manager at REI Marina.  He used to make these in the break room in crock pots.  Magic.  Apparently the recipe's from Pyramid Brewery.  Mary Ann and Lauren are making them tomorrow for the big football event. (I'm all about the food, forget football).

Again, this is from Bryan's head, so you may need to adjust for quantities and taste.

What's in it:
Frozen buffalo wings (technically referred to as 'drummettes'), preferably the jumbo bag from Costco
Hot Sauce:
1/2 bottle of Frank's Hot Sauce (apparently this is key), not their buffalo sauce, though
1 Tbl Chipotle BBQ sauce (or any you have on hand)
1/2 stick melted butter
Spoon full of brown sugar
Splash of OJ
Tangy Sauce:
1/2 stick melted butter
Spoon full of brown sugar
Splash of OJ
1 Tbl soy sauce
lots of lime juice
shot or so of Tequilla

How it's made:
Thaw chicken overnight in fridge or by running hot water over them in a large bowl, or in a crock pot on low.
Preheat oven to 350 (or as directed on chicken packaging). 
Combine ingredients for either hot sauce or tangy sauce, or both.  You can make two separate batches for each flavor.  Use a baking pan lined with foil, add chicken and cover with sauce.  Bake as directed, or for about 15-20 minutes until done.  Baste often and turn 3-4 times.
