You should write a cookbook entitled "Things you should not attempt to cook!" This can be your first recipe!

Healthier yes, but you definitely do not get the same crisp to the wing as you do with deep frying.

Oh they are healthier that way? Well.. that's done then.

I can cook more wings faster that way. We have a little old fry daddy.

It's been about 2-3 years since I've had deep fried wings. You folks are giving me a yearning.

Hmmmmm... deep fried wings tossed with Frank's Red Hot Sauce and melter butter, and a side bowl of blue cheese dressing, and some crisp celery!!!

Be still my beating heart I love Buffalo wings.
I just always grill my wings now. I could never find an electric deep fryer that would maintain temp for a "decent" amount of wings. I should give my stovetop fryer a try.

You can get them dang close on the grill. I don't like to do them in the oven because the high temp you need to get them crispy makes the grease smoke. I love buffalo wings too. I always cut up my celery and soak it in ice cold water in the fridge for an hour, and it makes it crisp crisp crisp. I did that once to restore limp celery, and it worked so well I do it all the time now. In case you're interested, celery gets limp when it gets dehydrated, because when the cells get "deflated" it can't hold its structure anymore. Soaking it in water makes it seem like you just picked it from the garden. :)
