These were good, but hardly spicy at all. I used frozen wing sections and cooked on high for about 5-6 hours and then low until they reached 180 degrees. The sauce just seemed to run off of them, so I broiled them for a few minutes as well. Maybe it was because most of the sauce stayed in the slow cooker instead of the wings! ;)

What a surprise! I made these for New year Eve, but forgot about them in the crockpot. I spooned them out, and the next day, we broiled them. Loved them.! A little worried that they would be to sweet or soupy, but they turned out great!!!

I'd rate 3-I too overcooked a bit, but they are kind of soupy so I took out of the sauce and under the broiler for a few to make not quite so messy.

good flavor. i broiled the wings first, 3" from heat - just to give them a bit of crispness, then transfered to crock pot. the wings were very tender; however, i overcooked mine a bit - should've cut back on cooking time since i broiled them.
