Combine the flour and crushed crackers with the pepper, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt, and garlic powder in a large mixing bowl.

 

Heat oil and bacon grease (if using) in an electric skillet or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

 

Remove the chicken wing portions from the buttermilk marinade, and discard the remaining marinade. Allow the excess buttermilk to drip from the wings, then press into the cracker crumbs to coat.

 

Cook in the preheated skillet until the breading is golden brown on the outside, and the chicken wings are no longer pink at the bone, about 12 minutes. Turn them over half way through frying.
