I hate seeing overcomplicated wing recipes.

12 wings, no breading, so flour, no green can parmesan cheese, no onion powder, etc.

Deep fry until internal temperature reaches 165F.

Place into a large bowl, season with salt and pepper, pour a generous amount of hot sauce into the bowl. No butter, unless you are a complete wuss. Toss. The wings should not be dripping, just coated and still crispy.

Serve with blue cheese and celery to help cool the heat. If you like Ranch, you are a redneck.

I won't argue about hot sauces, everyone has their favorite.

vudukungfu: Now, let's cook it in the hottest peppers we can stand so that there is no taste to it, just hot sauce.


I think this is the problem with the wing sauce recipes at most places. Too much emphasis on the pepper and not enough emphasis on vinegar. For me at least, the sour tang of vinegar should be equal to or greater than the taste/heat of the pepper. Otherwise it's just buttered 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.


20 Cents? Where do you live? Around here, they're never cheaper than .50, and usually about a dollar each. Yeah, I don't order them much anymore.

This crap again?! I've been working in the food service industry (back of the house) since 1995 and I can tell you that this has been the 'story' every year since before I even started. It's a false story to justify an increase in price for an inferior product. When the super bowl is over, the product doesn't get any better, and the price doesn't go back down.

Lobster and ribs nod in approval.

Hell, escargot probably started off as some poor frenchmen with an empty stomach walking down a beach saying to himself, "I bet if I cook these in enough butter it will keep me from starving"

I have an idea. Let take something that is prone to salmonella, something most people can fark up.
Poultry.
Now, let's cook it in the hottest peppers we can stand so that there is no taste to it, just hot sauce.
And to top it off, We can serve it with rotten, moldy milk and curds.
Mmmm Mmmm good.

I love fried chicken, but you wings enthusiasts are just foodfaddies.
I like wings, too, but you can achieve the same thing with tenderloins or fillet of breast meat.

Not even science. Just call John Madden.


You could sell Buffalo turkey wings to drunk football fans for $5 a pop.

Maybe I can start a Buffalo duck wing franchise next to French football stadiums...

It doesn't take much to start a furor with foodies, no matter how retrograde their tastes may be.

So anyone who eats food now is a "foodie?" I hate that word so much.

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 Link
I'd substitute a regular Buffalo sauce recipe (no bbq sauce, add vinegar, worchestershire, garlic powder, cayenne, like this Link

They taste different when you bake them. Get a fryer. It won't kill you to use it once in a while.

The only reason I'm going to a SB party is to relinquish my trophy for the fantasy football league that I'm in. This is done annually on superb owl sunday. I've embittered about our culture so much that, what really sounds good to me is staying home and recording it so that I can fast forward through all the bullshiat, the commercials, the pomp and circumstance, "patriotism", american idol awfulness. I don't want to see anything that isn't the game itself. And even that, I don't care so much about. I hope Ray Lewis goes out a loser, but I also don't necessarily want to see Kapernick as the next hero. What's wrong with me?

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.


Apparently some asshole chef on TV must have had a show on marrow bones, because while i can find them more places, the prices are ridiculous. The cheapest unpopular cut right now in my area is pork shoulder; I can get it for $.99/lb on sale. Beef roasts have been overpriced for the last few years.

Maybe I came from a broken home, but I do not have this absolute need to eat certain foods on certain occasions. Hell, I don't feel the need to eat "breakfast" foods only for breakfast, in fact, I prefer them for lunch. Never felt the need for Sunday dinner, a turkey at thanksgiving, etc. Sure, I'll take it if that what's there, but I don't need it on any level.

So no wings for the Superbowl just means time to have nachos, or chicken fingers, or whatever.

I learned two things from this article. First, the third joint of the wing is called the flapper, which is kind of awesome. Second, you can eat it apparently, at least if you're Asian. I don't know how, there isn't any meat on em.

Was going to say the exact same thing. Even had news articles pulled up from the past four years with the exact same idiotic story. But then my browser crashed (thanks IT department for still running on IE7) and I lost the links and I don't feel like pulling them back up. But yeah, same story, same bullshiat, every year.
