ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Matt Reynolds is determined to find the world's best chicken wings and he's come home to do it. Reynolds is leading a caravan of wing lovers on a trek up and down and across New York state in search of the best chicken wings.
The "Great Chicken Wing Hunt" began last weekend in Manhattan and made a stop yesterday in Albany.
Their itinerary includes stops in the Adirondacks, Watertown, Syracuse, Rochester and finally the birthplace of the chicken wing, Buffalo, where they'll attend the National Wing Festival on Labor Day weekend.
Reynolds is making a documentary film about his quest, and his eclectic group includes cameramen, a guitar player and a competitive eater from Rochester nicknamed "Mighty Thor."
The 31-year-old said he got the idea while working as a journalist in Slovakia, where he made it his mission to introduce chicken wings to Europeans.
