Step 2: Marvelous Marinade
In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups (720 ml) buttermilk, 2 Tbsp chili powder, and 1 tsp Cayenne pepper. Whisk briskly until everything is incorporated and the marinade is a nice, pink color. Salt 2 lbs (1 kg) chicken wings and drumsticks and pour the marinade on top. Mix the wings and drumsticks insuring all sides are coated with the marinade. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Step 3: Flour Power
Place the wings and drumsticks into a bowl with 4 cups (400 g) of flour. Coat all sides thoroughly and place on baking sheet. The buttermilk and flour will add to the deep fried experience.

Heat 8 cups (2 L) of canola oil to 350F (180C) and place the chicken wings and drumsticks in the pot using tongs. Be cautious not to burn yourself or expose any of the oil to open flames. Fry up to six wings and drumsticks at a time for 3-5 minutes. Place on a paper towel when finished.
Step 5: Sauce And Serve
Place the fried wings and drumsticks in a large serving bowl and pour 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) of your favorite hot sauce over the chicken. Toss the chicken to coat and serve with Blue Cheese dressing and celery sticks. Enjoy!
