I use my chef's knife in a regular, tip of the knife on the board, downward stroke. I don't chop with it.

I slice through the joint, but I have sliced through bone as well with that knife.

What is that warty, cucumber-ish vegi?

Exactly. The bones in a wing aren't all that tough.

I've snipped through the bone as well. It looks like a small white sea shell left attached by cartilage. I make sure I pull it off so I don't run into it later when I'm eating.

That's what I do to but I still remember where I put them in the pan so I don't get them ... it queases me out when I nick the bone. A shears may be a better option ...

Oh dear, will I be refused entrance to the Americas because I like onions, tomato ketchup AND mustard on my hot dogs (at the same time)? Please, Miss, it is American mustard.

I think you only need to stay out of British Columbia...Laurie might get you with her cane.

Don't be dismayed. You should see what they do to a hot dog in Chicago? You almost can't even find the hot dog when they get through dousing it with toppings. Looks more like a chef's salad than a hot dog on a bun. And we let them stay in the country.
