The Quintessential Yet Essential Buffalo Wings
Nothing is more trite that football season accompanied by beer and wings. So what? In my opinion, this is a good thing. Well, it’s a good thing as long as you can get some good wings because sometimes the football isn’t so good.
Now the sad thing about this whole ordeal is that you really do have to make your own wings if you want your wings to be the best tasting, per your specified degree of hotness, and sadly the right size. We have gone to wing places where this is supposed to be their specialty and been very disappointed. I’ve had them ranging from under-fried to petrified and undercooked and much like a dog’s chew toy. And even when we may luck out and get some decent wings, lately they have tended to look much like pigeon wings rather than chicken wings. And don’t let it be all-you-can-eat because the second plate usually tastes like a subtle attempt to tell you that you need to stop ordering.
This recipe will make wings crispy enough to stand up to the sauce and still have good texture. I have, on several occasions, made these and taken them to a party for reheat. They were the star or the party.
i like them super crispy so the littel boney ends crunch and you can eat them
i am NOT BUYING A DEEP FRYER
But I luh da wings. Did you use Frank's?
Kat: Too hot? You can use a milder sauce. That's the cool thing about making your own. You control the heat.
Abby: Thanks. Let me know how they turn out.
Claudia: No deep fryer? How about a dutch oven and a candy thermometer?
Hélène: Make up a batch. You won't be dissappointed.
Nikki: Yup. I always use Franks. Have tried several others over the years, but Franks is the winner. THE best flavor.
Judy: I am always happiest when I make them Almost always disappointed when I get them take-away.
Robin: No football? WTF???? That's okay, you can still make these.
Foodycat: Thanks! The rest helps the coating stay on. The stint in the oven helps reheat all at once and keeps them from being undercooked.
Kim: That's nice of you to say. But me beat Bobby Flay? I don't know, but I'd sure like to try. I NEED my deep fryer. It makes the best French fries.
Your pictures are just crazy good, wicked. Won't you come to CA and live next door to us? We'll provide the beer!
