Ideas for turkey wings?

I have a pack of turkey wings, I bought them because they were on sale. I thought I could make giant buffalo wings with them. I was told that they don't work well for that. Are there any other uses?

Thanks!

Funny you should post that today. I am going to do some up myself. I was thinking of the smoker, but I may get the charcoal going instead. I have split them up and rubbed them. I think I am just going to go with a mop to try and get the skin crispy and finish them indirectly. I will show some pics tonight.

That is what I am worried about, not being able to get the skin crispy enough. Can't wait to see your pictures!

If the skin isn't crisping up enough, I will try and stoke up the heat and hopefully that will work. And if that fails, i will give them a quick broil in the toaster oven.

One of the stores around here sells smoked turkey wings. I've never cooked any though.

I'd use smoked turkey wings in some beans.

i've grilled turkey wings before, then made them buffalo style that ended up being pretty good.

it's not the same thing as a real deep fried buffalo wing, but i guess it depends on how picky you are about your buffalo wings. i know people who have to have them a certain size, fried to death, and a combo of spices added or they won't eat them.

i'm good with any kind of fried, broiled, or grilled wings, and a simple sauce of frank's, butter, and cayenne. oh, and blue cheese dressing and celery.

I'm wondering if they would make a good substitute for the ham bone in split pea soup. It's hard for me to come by a ham bone, but smoked turkey wings could be made aytime.

My bbq attempt was a disaster. Way too stringy and tough. I smoked the other pack a week later. I left them in for 6 hours with a rub and a mop and they turned out quite nice. I will pick up some more.
