Bought my brother in law a small fryer set up from Bass Pro for xmas, he's not much of a cook but he loves wings so I also bought about 8 lbs of wings and drummettes (is this new packaging) to take down and fry up with our Portillo's Italian Beef.

Me personally, No Breading and I'm up for any kind of sauce, but buffalo is the default unless I think others would eat it. One of my buddies likes non-breaded but he prefers to put just a little flour dusting on the wings and let them sit over night, says it helps with the crispiness. Any secret recipes or tricks?

No breading. Soak them in the sauce, fire up the charcoal grill, grill them almost done, throw them back in the sauce, then back on the grill to finish & bake the sauce in. Serve with Ranch. Blue cheese is unamerican.

I love to fry the wings first and then toss them with a nice sauce. I feel like they come out nice and crispy.

Second favorite way is the grill.

nothing beats a good fried wing.

sauce... butter, dash tabasco, Louisiana hot sauce, franks hot, pepper.

pour all sauces into pan and turn on low heat
add butter and stir until melted.
your sauce is now ready to be put on wings

or make to your liking.


EDIT: I do like a boneless wings for ease of eating. I have mine cooked with sauce on the side so they stay crispy.

No breading. I marinade them then fry or grill, then toss in sauce. Simple and delicious.

Either nothing or just a light dusting of seasoned flour then fried. Sauce is just your favorite hot sauce thinned with some butter. I like my wings simple.

I do mine naked, fried and tossed in sauce. I have several sauces I make from scratch but for the general population I would do straight Franks Red Hot (butter is for pansies). Toss with sauce and serve with bleu cheese. Ranch is for salad and since the best bleu cheese in the world is maytag and is made in my hometown of Newton, Iowa I don't see it as unamerican.

Bake, toss in Franks Red Hot, let marinate in the fridge for a day, bake again.
Quick and easy for lazy folk like me

I chose coated, then fried. Don't confuse that with breading, though. I do a very light dusting of flour that's just enough to make 'em crisp. Frank's is great sauce. Believe it or not, the Hooters sauce that comes in a jar is pretty good, too.

EdWort showed me a delicious new take on wings. Coat the wings with a rib rub that has a bit of sugar in it. Lightly smoke 'em for about 45 minutes at 300° F. Eat them as is or give 'em a bath in your favorite wing sauce.
