1To obtain bacon fat: preheat oven to 350F and layer smoked bacon strips (1 pound) on baking sheet. Cook until crispy and drain fat from strips. Reserve this fat. If it cools, bring to a liquid state by warming in sauce pot or microwave.
2Whisk together bacon fat with all the ingredients except the chicken wings. Whisk until combined and pour over wings, slathering them and letting marinate for 10-15 minutes.
3Preheat oven to 400F and cook wings until crispy on the outside and no longer pink on the inside. Serve by themselves or Ranch dressing!
