Mix 4 cups flour, hot water, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt together in a large mixing bowl; pour yeast mixture into the flour mixture and mix. Add remaining flour, one cup at a time, mixing well between additions. Continue to work the mixture until you have a dough; divide dough into 2 halves. Divide each half into 12 long bread sticks and arrange onto prepared baking sheets.

Pour melted butter and sprinkle Parmesan cheese and garlic powder over the breadsticks.

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 13 minutes.
