Stella Wings

20 wings (cut in half)
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1-1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of Stella Artois beer
1 cup of barbecue (original flavor) barbecue sauce

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Place the wings in a mixing bowl.  Pour olive oil and a couple pinches of salt/pepper over the wings. Mix.
(**Save some olive oil for the sauce)
3. In a jumbo size (Ziploc) bag, pour flour.  Add the wings into the bag, and seal bag. Shake well.
4. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Place wings on the baking sheet (shake excess flour off of the wings).  No need to leave space between each wing, when placing them on the baking sheet.

10. Once you take the wings out, place in a bowl.  Heat sauce just before pouring them on the wings.
11. Pour 3/4 of the sauce mixture, and stir. Add more if desired.
12. Once wings are mixed in the sauce, place back on the baking sheet.  They do not need to be laid out perfectly.
13. Put in the broiler for about 2-3 minutes until crispy. Make sure not to leave them in for too much longer or else they will burn.

1. In a small pot, pour the barbecue sauce, Stella, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
