Hehe, punny.

1$+ first?

what kind of chickens have such tiny wings? are they normal chickens? are they pygmys? do the secret herbs & spices resemble growth hormones?

If only they had Wegmans in the southeast...

Mmmm, President's Choice Mild seasoning.

The little chickens are all from Buffalo
 
2005-02-06 03:36:37 PM  
I just found out why Buffalo Wings are called Buffalo Wings.

They send people out to get fresh pizza just for the halftime," Sous chef David Evans said.

They gotta have a sous chef to make wings and pizza???

I don't eat buffalo.

I ordered wings (and bought other food) for a small party that I just found out has fallen through. 50 hot wings and only my girlfriend to share them with. She and my ass are going to hate me.

Personally, I like to keep the buffalo wing eating process as abstract as possible. In other words, I don't want to BUY the wings and sauce, PREPARE and COOK them before I EAT them.

I want to take a sip from my beer, and say, "a dozen wild, extra wet" to the BW3 waitress and have them magically appear 10 minutes later along with another beer refill.
 
2005-02-06 03:43:54 PM  
I've abandoned the wings in favor of the boneless wings. They just streamline the fattening process so much.

When they learn to gene-splice properly they can combine insect genes with chickens, and each chick can produce six wings.

But will they still taste like chicken?
 
2005-02-06 03:52:30 PM  
Im going to go ahead and ruin your chicken wing eating for the day.

Your fat asses will thank me.

Maybe we can start an urban legend about how half of all chicken wings for the year are purchased the week before Superbowl Sunday?

It's true.

I read it on the Internet

I made the mistake of going to the supermarket today, it was insanity x10.

Oh, and speaking from experience, the story about pizzerias busiest day being superbowl sunday is crock. Yea, we were busy, but it was not the insanity that is haloween.

Baby chickens. That's right. You're eating baby chicks.

Ever see Baraka? Or built the Cloning Vats tech in Alpha Centauri? Yeah...THOSE chicks.

Boneless buffalo wings are a travesty. If I want chicken tenders I will go to BK. Most of the flavory goodness actually comes from the bone. Thats why you make stock with the bones. Its flavor central.

Mmmmm. Deep-fried chicken heads. Where can I get me a bucket of those? No, make it a barrel.

How did you get that picture? I work in that baby chiken factory and there is a strict "no camera" policy.

I just got off work a little bit ago and here's what we sold the fark out of...

Chicken Wings... a given
Stuff for Chili
Johnsonville Meatballs
Boboli Bread and whatever you like on your Pizza
Frozen Pizzas

I think I'll go take a nap now... I've been at it since 6am and my body needs to retire for the day.

my friends and i like to frequent a place in Huntington Beach, CA called "Wings 'n' Things"

last year we were there the friday night before superbowl sunday. on the wall by the cash register was a post it that read "28,250" when we got there. when we left a couple hours later, someone had replaced the that post it with another one that read "49,000".

when we asked what it meant, the owner said that's the number of wings on order for the superbowl for pickup and it would probably double or more by sunday

I went to the grocery at around 1PM today, and noticed that the bean aisle had been torn apart. There were no kidney beans left. I guess the population of VA likes to eat chili while watching the Super Bowl. I expected the pizza shortages, but beans? New to me.
 
2005-02-06 04:53:38 PM  
I'm glad folks are eatin' em. Aside from the head and feet, they're the least-appetizing portion of a chicken. "Yeah, I'd like a mouthful of skin and tendon, with just a touch of meat - please feel free to camouflage them with whatever spices you can use, thanks!"
 
2005-02-06 04:58:23 PM  
Little Caesers has Hot N' Ready wings for $5. They're quite good and with $1.00 for crazy bread you can't go wrong!

That's what I've always been saying...!

Honey sesame chicken wings

8 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons peanut oil
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons grated ginger
1 1/4 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
2 green onions, not quite finely diced (use both white and green parts)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

BIG NOTE: the above is more of a guideline than a strict recipe. I always play with it to taste so it's got the sweet, the sour, and a little bit of spice, all strong.

Take a small saucepan, and whisk together all the ingredients save the kosher salt and black pepper. Under low to medium heat, bring to just before a boil and then let cool to room temperature (don't worry, it won't congeal).

Next, separate the wings at the join and cut off the tips of the wings. If you're buying frozen wings, odds are this step is already done, making things much easier. Season the wings with the salt and pepper. I personally prefer sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper.

Place the chicken wings in a shallow pan, and pour the marinade in. make sure the wings are as submerged as possible. You can do as little as four hours, but I REALLY recommend overnight. After you've marinated your wings to your satisfaction, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. While that's happening, take the wings out of the marinade, but keep the marinade in a bowl. place the wings on a foil covered baking pan, baste the wings with the marinade, and pop them in the oven once it's done pre-heating. After that, take the wings out 3 more times at ten minute intervals to baste them. After that, let them be for 20 minutes.... you'll know they're done when they start to get nice and crisp on the top. Go ahead and serve as is, no dipping sauce is required or even needed.

Damn, Fark is so boring today I'm actually getting some work done.

Oh, and I hate chicken wings.
 
2005-02-06 05:20:46 PM  
Awesome, thanks KingVolcano

If I were to buy frozen wings, do I need to thaw them before marinating them, say, overnight in the fridge?

Chicken wings flynig off of shelves?

Who you gonna call!?
 
2005-02-06 06:07:26 PM  
Wegmans. Ahhhh. Went to RIT. Wings? Try Country Sweet.

A lady in the grocery store said that today was the one day of the year they sold three times the normal amount of beer and chicken.

/texas sting buffalo wing sauce is the best

Because my 3.5 year old daughter doesn't eat very much, but when it comes to wings, she hoovers them all up. I've seen dogs leave more meat on bones.

BW3 rocks. The last time we were there the manager comes over, gravidly pregnant, points to our daughter and tells us that in February they'll be doing family night where all the screens are doing Disney flicks.

(if you absolutely can't stand wings they have kickass sandwiches and lo-carb options.)

I made 12 pounds, they were awesome. If you don't deep fry them in oil though, it's just not right. Baked wings are teh ghey.
