3 lbs chicken wings
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups your favorite bottled barbecue sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp spicy brown mustard
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco sauce to taste, optional
Rinse wings and pat dry with paper towels. Cut off and discard wing tips. Cut each wing in the joint to make 2 pieces.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the wings; place in a broiler pan and broil 4 to 5-inches from the heat for 15 to 20 minutes to brown. Turn once to brown both sides. Transfer to a crockpot or slow cooker.
Make the sauce by combining the barbecue sauce, honey, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and tabasco if you like a little more heat, together in a small mixing bowl. Pour over the chicken wings in the cooker.
Place lid on cooker and cook on low setting 4 to 5 hours or on high setting 2 1/2 hours.
