Question Chicken wings

Is there a great chicken wing? Bars make them, restaraunts make them, I make them, but everyone says there's are the best. To my knowledge you can either deep fry or bake the wing, then put on your sauce of choice. Do you have the best recipe?

Simplicity is best. Deep fried naked until lightly crunchy (No flour nor batter), and then tossed with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce mixed with Sweet Sirachi, and served with a bowl of Ranch Dressing on the side.

I love chicken wings. My favorite way is to grill them, after they've marinated for a bit in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, a little ginger, and fresh lemon juice. They're also good roasted that way, at 400 for about 45 minutes or so, turning once. I usually cut the wing tips off.

Powerplant has a collection of chicken wings on his youtube channel. I'm going to try the double fried next time I make them. I've made several of his recipes, and everything has been delicious.

If you enter chicken wings in the google search above, more from our members here come up.

I find it easiest to grill them. I just trim off the tip and grill the whole wing then took with Frank,s and butter for buffalo wings. I know they are traditionally deep fried but grilling is easier cleanup.

I bake mine in the oven and then toss them in a mixture similar to the one Andy outlined above, if I want heat I add a generous shake or two of cayenne.

Some of the best wings I have ever had came from little Chinese restaurants, sort of a sticky sweet and savory barbeque.

Wings are sort of like pizza even the bad ones are good!

I like to grill mine too, using a combination and direct and indirect heat.

Our old friend Pac taught this wing novice how to grill great wings several years ago. Darn, I miss him.

What ever sauce I choose the method is the same...
I set a disposable foil pan on the grill INDIRECT with the sauce and the wings in it. They marinate as they cook and bubble away. Then I pull them out and place them on the grate to caramelize. They turn out perfect every time.

I have the original Anchor Bar recipe, spirited away by a high school classmate that worked his way through the University of Buffalo under the tutelage of Frank & Teresa.

No need to look further my friends, step right up, step right up to oven baked BBQ chicken wings using 5 cents of foil.

We love the Pier 66 wings from a place in Key West. Orange marmalade, soy sauce, garlic marinade, baked in oven, then sprinkled with toasted coconut and green onions. Recipe can be found at http://www.discusscooking.com/forums/f15/pier-66-wings-82643.html .

A year or so ago, we tried a local chain's pizza that was supposed to be really great. It was decent, but too many toppings and not broken down (I know but there does come a point and who wants whole jalapenos on their pizza, seeds, stem and all) that it didn't taste done and was hard to eat. We tried it twice and had same issues so not just a one-off. The wings, however, were great. They use coal-fired ovens to cook the pizza and the wings. One of the local papers printed the recipe. Pizza place excels at wings - tribunedigital-sunsentinel . We cook them on the grill with hardwood charcoal. We also don't marinate anywhere near as long as 24 hours, maybe 6 if we remember to do early in the day, 4 otherwise, and they taste just as good.
