BJs whole sale club has a sale on chicken wings. I was thinking about making some but I dont have a fryer. I could put them in the oven, but they wont tastes as good. I have a bunch of peanut oil. I also have a block of lard.

I could probably use a small pot and heat up oil outside. I could even use the original kettle. That's the one I make beer with.

I'm not much of a cook and have know Idea how to make chicken wings. I'M sure someone here does.

you can do them in a small pot with the peanut oil. Just lightly coat the wings in flour, then deep fry till done. Take them out of the fryer and place them on a paper towel.

At this point, you can either cover them in buffalo or teryaki sauce. for either buffalo or teryiaki wings.

Here's a recipe from Alton Brown's show. I haven't done it but it's on my list.

I wouldn;t recomend using your brew pot though. It'd be a PITA to make sure you got it completey clean of oil residue

Use a dutch oven on your propane cooker if you have one. You can cook twenty five or thirty wings at a time using a dutch oven as a deep fryer. It holds the heat in very well. Don't put flour on them. That's not the real "Buffalo" way. I grew up In Buffalo and have eaten many a wing. If you want, brine the wings for a half hour in a gallon of water with a quarter cup of sugar and a quarter cup of kosher salt. This will make them juicy and tender inside and crispy and golden on the outside. Rinse them well after they are done brining and dry them as best you can. Get your oil up to 375 and put the wings in. MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT FROZEN! As soon as you put them in the oil you need to crank up the burner and get the oil back up to 375 ASAP. Don't go over though or you will burn the oil and the wings. Cook them for twelve minutes. Remove the wings and place them in a large tupperware on paper towels to drain some of the oil off. Immediately remove the paper towels and pour your sauce on top of the wings. Put the lid on and shake like hell. You will have to "burp" the lid a few times or the heat will cause it to blow off and make a huge mess. Eat immediately with bleu cheese dressing and celery. Never use ranch! These will be the best wings you have ever had...guaranteed! I make them once every few weeks. They're not healthy but that is not why you eat wings.

Wing sauce:

1/2 cup clarified butter
1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce (you HAVE to use Frank's...Walmart grocery store sells a 64 oz. jug for about five bucks)
a few shakes of ground cayenne pepper
a few shakes of Tabasco Sauce

mix all in a small pan and bring to almost a boil. Add cayenne and Tabasco to taste. You can make them as hot as you want this way.

Bleu cheese dressing:

4 oz. Maytag bleu cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Hellman's mayo
two tablespoon's lemon juice
dash of worchester sauce
1/4 cup of buttermilk
dash of cayenne
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1/2 clove of garlic minced

Mix all ingrediants and refigerate for a little while to blend flavors

Trust me, you will have friends that you haven't seen in ten years at your house once word gets around. These are the apfelwein of chicken wings. I get sick of people asking me to make them for parties, etc. If the wings aren't separated make sure you do it. It's easy to cut the drum stick and wing tip off. Throw out the tips. Use a sharp kitchen knife and you'll get the hang of it in no time. I use a really sharp meat clever and just slice right at the joint. Slice though...don't hack at them like you are trying to chop wood!

Have you got a grill? I strongly prefer grilled wings over deep-fried. The grill gives them a wonderful flavor, and a lot of the fat renders out resulting in a healthier and less greasy wing. I use a dry rub with both chile and brown sugar, and grill them over fairly high heat...keeping a close eye on them to avoid burning. Once they are evenly crispy, I toss them into the sauce.
