vudukungfu: Now, let's cook it in the hottest peppers we can stand so that there is no taste to it, just hot sauce.
justanotherfarkinfarker: Bars use to give the things away if you bought beer. Now it's .20 cent wings and such as a good deal.
brantgoose: It seems that all the cheap poor people food is almost as expensive as the good stuff nowadays.
Grapple: Maybe don't eat so damn many then... do you really need like 300 wings for 5 fat guys to sit around all day and eat? Really?
Kristoph57: Rapmaster2000: Science just needs to invent a chicken with 6 wings instead of 2. Do I have to think of everything around here?Not even science. Just call John Madden.
SuperT: doesn't this story come out every year?
ski9600: david_gaithersburg: StoPPeRmobile: david_gaithersburg: Before you people got involved I was only paying $0.42 p/lb. Stop eating my wings!At Publix you can get a fully cooked chicken or 10 uncooked wings.Stop the insanity.Seriously. Before wings became popular I would buy sauce from Bill Bateman's and make my own wings for pennies per/lb, This was back in the early nineties, before the foodies ran up supplies and Al Gore ran up food prices. I miss Bill Bateman's!!!The sauce is the easy part, I find the frying to be the pain in the arse. I mean you've got to use a bunch of oil, and even in 350deg oil it takes like 12-15 minutes to cook, while it's splattering all over the stove-top. And when you're done, you've got to get rid of the oil. I guess I could just roast the wings on a tray in the oven. That would be a lot easier.I think I might try drumsticks though as they are on sale this week for $1.29/lb and I like them better anyway. This recipe has very good reviews LinkI'd substitute a regular Buffalo sauce recipe (no bbq sauce, add vinegar, worchestershire, garlic powder, cayenne, like this Link[img.foodnetwork.com image 616x462]
brantgoose: Waves a perfumed lace hankerchief foppishly: Let them eat steak.But seriously, am I the only one who thinks it ironic that the worst part of the chicken apart from the gizzards has become so popular that it costs as much or more than chicken breasts and is in short supply?When I was a kid they couldn't give chicken wings away.And I can remember when chicken livers and hearts were cheap enough for impecunious students to eat. Mmmm ... fried chicken livers.It seems that all the cheap poor people food is almost as expensive as the good stuff nowadays. Macquerel, for example. I still don't know anybody who would want to eat one, but it costs as much or more than farmed salmon if anybody ever bought it.If we don't smarten up we will be eating krill and plankton and liking it.

billybobtoo: OK, Once again I'm gonna remind you people that we call them "wings", not Buffalo wings or chicken wings....just wings! (Lives 10 minutes from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo....the birthplace of wings.)
Kristoph57: SuperT: doesn't this story come out every year?Happened in 2009, too.Its almost as if the industry wants to drive up prices to coincide with a spike in demand by creating false scarcity..
Woot_Gawd: Call me when there is a shortage of Ribs!
Demetrius: It probably doesn't help that McDonald's is getting into the chicken wing business.
