Interesting to say the least! I can't believe you held back on that.
But I got a chuckle out of your brief response.

I swear, if I knew they used whirl, I'd never go back.



Well, interesting to know people use that, not that it sounds interesting, lol. You won't fine me using it. I don't even use butter, like others do.

We watch more baseball, but since BOTH of our NY teams crapped out we might just start watching football. Then we can watch both of our NY teams crap out again Although, since I went to school in Rhode Island I am also a Pat's fan. But we're really just in it for the food!

Well, this Bostonian is MIGHTY pleased that neither NY team is playing tonite.

(Also disagrees w/ HotPepper - I don't enjoy wings that cause me pain and tears & numbness. There's nothing wrong w/ the tried & true Frank's w/ butter and a dash of Tabasco for a bit more heat. IMHO, of course!)

I'm going to make some hot cajun breasts tonight. Just 3 lbs. bone in split breasts, 2 cups LA hot sauce, 1/2 stick of butter, cooked covered on high heat, and served over white rice. Not a wing but they are easy and tasty. I have used a skilett and also a covered dish in the oven at 400. Both ways work.

I think I will try my low pressure SS skilett tonight. It's what they call that waterless cookware. No, I don't sell tha stuff!

Typically 8-12 minutes depending on how crispy you like them.

I prefer them deep fried and then doused with the butter & Crystal hot sauce...however if doing a large batch I will sprinkle the wings with Cajun seasoning and bake in the oven until crisp...then dump in a crock pot and cover with the sauce mixture. I like pretty hot food, but if cooking for a crowd I limit the heat to Crystal. Might bump it a little, but most people don't associate pain with good food.

Something else I have done for years is using legs instead of wings. A lot more bang for the buck and pretty tasty.

I am of the blue cheese camp too, but I had to ask about ranch. There is a bottle of blue cheese in the fridge just for wings and steaks.
Next question, is celery an important part of the equation? I don't care for it.

Bottled bleu cheese dressing??? Try the recipe in the Joy of Cooking - I always add extra cheese

If you don't like celery, try cukes or carrots. The idea is to have something cold and crunchy to balance the hot wings dripping in sauce.

I don't want to start an argument, but I think you would be very surprised at how many restaurants use Whirl -- many places you most probably frequent. If you go out to breakfast, you'll find most diners use it for their eggs. When you see a short order cook brush the grill with "butter", there's a good chance it's Whirl. Liquid at room temperature, , lower in salt content, and with a higher smoking point, it is basically is a liquid margarine made for cooking.

I'm all for butter, and in my catering I NEVER use Whirl, but in my shop where I'm selling 12 8-10/lb wings for $5.50 including homemade blue cheese dressing (Blue cheese, mayo, half and half, seasonings), I can't afford the time or cost of butter. I just paid $1.69/lb for butter solids -- assuming I use 1/4 cup butter per serving of wings, it would cost my customer $0.70 to use butter vs. less than $0.15 for Whirl.

The difference in taste is negligible, Whirl actual homogenizes into the hot sauce better, and does not separate as easily. I think my customers would rather this compromise that getting 10 wings...

If cost was no object, of course I'd use butter, but when I'm pricing to my market, I use ingredients that allow me the margin I need.

I use a medium to medium hot fire and try to get a sear without drying them out. Do not over cook.

After they are seared, then I toss them with the sauce. I use Crystal or Franks. Use any hot sauce you wish.

Try it, wings are cheap.

I can't quite remember the name of the place, but there is a place in Buffalo that grills their wings...It actually might be in Amherst...

If I make em at home, I just fry the wings and then dip in a mixture of Frank's and butter.

Some restaurants use the following method to make hot wings ... flour the wings in regular flour, deep fry them, then take right from the deep fryer (after shaking and draining for a minute, but the wings must be *very* hot still) and dunk them into a mixture of Franks and liquid ("squeeze") margarine, and then plate them for service. If I remember correctly, the ratio was 2 parts Franks to 3 parts liquid margarine (or it might have been 1 to 3 ...?).
Actually they're pretty darn good this way - the flour coating and then the thick hot wing mixture makes a nice coating similar to the consistency that barbque sauce makes on food.

People seem to think to kill the hot, to drink water (which makes it worse), bread (which takes way too long, as does milk). We've found, through trial and error (and many gallons of habanero extract production) that the best curative is straight white sugar. The reasoning behind this is quite simple. There is an atomic bond between capsaicin and sugar. When you ingest a hot sauce, the sugar is immediately stripped off the capsaicin crystal, and is assimilated/dissolved into your saliva. The crystal sits at the base of your tastebud stalk and will for some time. Upon ingestion of the pure sugar, and swishing it around a bit, the capsaicin crystal rebonds to a sugar crystal, and is swallowed, hence the ring of fire and porcelain etching in the morning. Casein in mile and yogurt may work, but it takes way too long. One must realize there is a ton of sugar in nearly any pepper, whether it be hot or not, and the also have roughly 3 times the vitamin C of an orange, pretty good for ya.

I wish the spell check we had here, offered the correct spelling, instead of just highlighting the wrong word.
I am right with ya there, Papa..
Sometimes, I have to spell check using google to make sure I get a word spelled right, after I see the highlighted word.


Oops..
Sorry to hi-jack.

Lol Roossy, I do the google spell check sometimes also. I usually only worry about my spelling for the title of a new thread. No way to edit those.

Ok, back to the wings. Have we talked about hot wing soup on this thread? It's the soup that's also a finger food! I just cook the wings in hot sauce and butter ( 2 cups to 1 stick ), then add some cooked white rice to the bowl. Serve whatever you like on the side to squelch the heat. Have pleanty of paper towles on hand, and don't rub your eyes!

Call me crazy... but you guys got me thinking about using popcorn "golden topping" in my wing sauce in stead of margerine? I use ACT II from Sam's Club to both pop & top my popcorn at my concession stand. ..I'll make a small batch this week.

In a sauce pan bring 1/2 cup Franks Hot Sauce, 1/2 cup Butter, 1/2 cup Honey and a tablespoon Ancho Chili Powder to a simmer. Season Wing pieces with salt, pepper and paprika (smoked if you have it) Then deep fry as normal. When wings are done move directly into large stainless steel bowl. Add enough sauce to coat and flip wings around until coated. Sometimes I sprinkle on toasted sesame seeds at the end...Russ

I throw them in a skillet with some lard and fry them. Toss them in hot garlic sauce from a local restaurant,
cut up some carrots & celery and you're good to go. I use blue cheese for dipping, my wife likes ranch.

dredge in flour seasoned with cumin, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and onion powder. Into the deep fryer(peanut oil only), after fried they are tossed in a mixture of melted unsalted butter(I dont believe in margerine), and Texas Pete's hot sauce, Srirachi, or Crystal.
