Grilled Crispy Beer Wings

Wow!  I really was not expecting this to taste so good!  I was really expecting bland and boring, but the flavor really kicks!  I'll make these again for a crowd.

Grilled Crispy Beer Wings
adapted from Zestuous

15-16 full wings
2 bottles of beer
1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot, divided
4 tsp baking powder
4 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp black pepper

The night before, place wings in a resealable bag (I divided 8 wings in 2 bags).  Pour a bottle of beer and a 1/4 cup of hot sauce in each bag and toss to coat wings.  Refrigerate overnight.  Eight hours before cooking, remove the wings from the marinade (discard) and pat with paper towels to dry (don't rub, just lightly pat).  Combine baking powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper.  Spread out the wings on a baking sheet and sprinkle both sides with spice mixture, patting a little.  Place in the fridge for 8 hours.  When you're ready to grill, turn half your burners to medium-high.  Place the chicken on the other side of the grill (indirect heat).  Grill for 10 minutes, flip and grill for 10 more.
