Special equipment: twelve 8-inch skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut each pork chop lengthwise into 3 pieces. Combine the blue cheese powder, black pepper and salt in a bowl. Sprinkle the pork "wings" on all sides with the spice mixture. Wrap each wing in a single layer with a strip of bacon and secure with a skewer; the skewers should stick out about 3 inches.
Place the wings on a baking sheet and bake until the bacon is crispy and the pork registers 145 degrees F on a digital thermometer, 45 to 55 minutes. Flip the wings about two-thirds of the way through to brown both sides -- keep an eye on the wings, and flip earlier if they are browning too quickly on the bottom.
Meanwhile, whisk together the butter, hot sauce and garlic powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the cayenne, then remove from the heat.
When the wings come out of the oven, brush them generously with the Buffalo sauce. Serve immediately with any remaining sauce.
