wow, I just reread my post and sorry for the grammar errors, but I'm sure people got the gist of it.


Well, I like to make home made wings and this is how I do it.

1.Fresh wings (wash and pat dry and cut the joints and burn off any remaining hair)

2.Seasoning: sprinkle some paprika, use a little garlic powder, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper. Place wings in those big freezer type baggies and leave it in the frig over night. You want all those spices to infuse into the meat.

*For you breaded people Mix all your spices into the flour then bread. Salt and pepper goes on after your bread them. You don't need to coat the wing in milk or egg, they should be sticky from when you washed them. After you you take them out of their over night stay in the frig the wing will look white because the flour is absorbed into the skin and like this because when you fry it the flour does come off. Some people like to re-bread them after they have been in the frig, but trust me you don't need to(overkill).

3.Cooking: I have a little $60 deep fryer from target that does the job nicely, or you could pan fry w/ oil. Fry the wings for 15 mins or until crispy (floating) and let them sit for a minute.

4.Sauce: Pour some Franks Red Hot in a bowl or container in which you will put your wings in. Put some crushed Parmesan cheese and garlic powder in the sauce with some red pepper flakes (eye ball it). Shake wings in sauce and eat(I got this sauce recipe from a buddy of mine).


I'm sorry I can't give you measurements on this stuff, I eyeball everything. You could tweak it any way you like.

I like both breaded and unbreaded wings and they are both tasty.

    This is my recipe for homemade wings. Not really "Buffalo" wings but just about the best I've tasted. This must be prepared two days in advance.

    I can't take full credit because I use the Bon Ton Mini Mart brine method first. Take two dozen wings, split and discard tips. Brine wings overnight in the Bon Ton brine. Take wings and dredge them in flour that's been seasoned with salt, pepper & cayenne. Deep fry at 350 deg. until browned. Put cooked wings in fridge (very important!). This will make the wings nice and chewy when re-fried (I don't like them moist and juicy).

    The next day, right before the game, deep fry again in 350 deg. until heated through, about 5 minutes. Make sauce using 2/3 Franks Red Hot and 1/3 butter. Add fresh ground pepper and cayenne pepper to sauce and adjust heat. Toss wings in sauce and serve with your favorite dipping sauce. I prefer Marie's Blue Cheese dressing. These wings are great with a few pints of Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout. And napkins. Lots.

    If anyone tries this recipe I would be delighted to hear some feedback!

                I tried the wings from Buffalo Wild Wings yesterday for the first and last time. I ordered the hot and made a point 3 times of asking for a lot of sauce on them. When I got home there was minimal sauce and though they were hot, they didn't taste like a buffalo sauce hot. They tasted more like they were sprinkled with cayenne pepper. I don't know if it's a Texas thing but here (Dallas-Ft Worth metroplex) they are served with as little sauce as possible, you have to ask for them to be wet. I'm from central New York, there the container is usually so full of sauce, you have to be extra careful that it doesn't spill out.

                    I just hate the fact that it became a "fad" to eat buffalo wings. I remember in the 90's when you got a wing from somewhere it was usually pretty good.Now you got so many places with so many variations, theyre barely "buffalo wings" at all.

                    Even if you do get a decent flavor, the quality of the chicken is usually less than desireable.

                    If youre gonna advertise buffalo wings..sell them.

                    If you wanna sell honey bbq wings then call it what it is.

                    JMHO.

                        Anyone like any of the Quaker Steak and Lube sauces? My g/f got me a set of 4 sauces, the lickers, hot, suicide, and cajun. Are they any good?

                            Personally I prefer the smaller wings. Why ? Because they tend to come from younger chickens.

                            I love PlanetWings wings and I used to go to the one in Newark. But I've largely stopped going there because they switched from smaller wings to larger wings. Planet Wings in Staten Island has good size (not too big) wings, but I don't want to pay $13 in tolls every time I have a hankering for wings !

                            Chicken Galore, on Rt 35, in Woodbridge, NJ, is pretty good. Not as good as the Planet Wings in Spring Valley, NY, but it's a much shorter drive for me.

                            Gino.

                              just remember, if the wing is breaded, it's not a Buffalo wing. It's merely a fried chicken wing with hot sauce.

                                I'm not a purist, but I'm from FL. I will eat both Buffalo wings and buffalo wings. I just don't like fatty, soggy wings.

                                      Great idea, that's thinking out of the box. I guess necessity is indeed the mother of invention. Now you need to get together with NYdan and figure out a way to embed the blue cheese in www.trongs.com.

                                                    Some of the best wings I've ever eaten are local to me at Buffalo Wild Wings in Worthington. Their Buffalitos ROCK too!

                                                      A disgrace? Maybe to hot dogs. To wings it's really pretty good. I'll admit the quality is inconsistent, but at least 98% of the time I'm pretty happy. It's easy to get to and the wings are cheap, but I know where to go for the best wings, and it isn't BWW. Favorite sauce is Blazin though

                                                        The best wings I have had (and I have been eating wings for almost 15 yrs now in various states) are my ex husbands, lol. Non breaded, deep fried fresh wings in a sauce made of Franks Red Hot, butter, fresh garlic, a bit of chili powder and freshly cracked black pepper. Even our 11 yr old son loves these, and it's easy to customize heat with fresh peppers.

                                                        Restaurant wise, I have never had any in the NY area, but most I have had in OR, DC, VA, CT, AL, MO, MI and WA are just not as good as those we make here at home. JMO, of course.

                                                          If you are ever in Atlanta or the Southeast, here are the best buffalo wings in Atlanta

                                                          There are a few restaurants on the list not in Atlanta but that's where I have wings most often since I live there.

                                                            Best wings I have ever had were at the Bidwell Tavern in Coventry, CT.  I also used to bar tend there :-) Giving me more than ample time to sample all 30+ varieties.  they are a naked spiced wings, friend to crispy awesomeness, then finished with sauce.  I prefer traditional buffalo wing sauce, but some of their combos are too good to pass up.
