I like breaded, but sometimes I go naked. I make a varity of sauces. I like to experiment so I make wings about twice a week and usally make 2 sauces at a time. It also depends on who is eating them, some of freind's like them real hot and some don't. For the Super Bowl last year I made about 150 wings with a varity of 5 sauces. One of the ones I made was with Ghost Chili powder, Ghost chili hot sauce and butter, those came out a little spicy.

YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!

I ate at a bbq joint the other day that has wings free with every pitcher. Only they cost you, cause as soon as you taste wings done like the above, you can't stop! smoky, lightly crisped. WOW!

In my experience, this is the best way to prepare wings:

Toss in Frank's Red Hot, and bake them until they're nearly done at like 350ish. Take them out, cool them off, THEN fry at 350-375 and toss with sauce. This ensures your wings will be really crispy and they won't take as long to deep fry.

I like them fried and buffalo-style (no breading, typ wing sauce, with a good bleu cheese dressing). Sometimes a little garlic powder in the sauce. I really like Marie's Super Bleu Cheese dressing (in the refrigerated dressing section of my produce dept), it has like 25% more crumbled bleu cheese in it.

Any secret recipes or tricks?
Not really a trick but I think they turn out better if you shake them in the wing sauce the instant they come out of the fryer. Then don't cover or enclose them. The uber hot wing will help 'boil off' the excess vinegar/liquid leaving a crispy butter/spice coated wing (covering/enclosing them will tend to decrease the crispiness).

I use a combination of dry spices then I toss them on a charcoal grill. While on the grill I baste them with a little teriyaki sauce.

After they are done I drizzle them with a homemade sauce. Basically the sauce is: butter, Texas Pete hot sauce (local sauce similar to Frank's),teriyaki, and spices.

Then dip em' in Ranch Dressing. (Around here, a fella could get called a "[insert homophobic slur here]" for serving his wings with Bleu Chese dressing.)

No breading!!!

Here is my Secret Recipe.....

Buy the largest Wings you can find.

Cut them into three pieces and save the tips for stock or toss them.

Place a wire rack into a cookie sheet and put the wings on the rack be sure they don't touch one another.

Put the cookie sheet in the fridge uncovered for at least 8 hours better if they are left for 24 hours. (this drys them out a bit)


1 Stick of Butter
1 medium sized bottle of Franks
1/2 bottle of tabasco (small bottle)
1/2 Teaspoon of Celery Salt
A little juice from a jar of pickled Jalapenos
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
Couple pinches of Cayenne

After the wings have dried, deep fry them in 365' oil until they are crsipy (about 6-8 minutes)

Drench them in the sauce and enjoy.

I love grilling my wings, but getting some good advice here! Got a new grill and I think I'm going to start smoking them when the weather gets a bit better here. But I grill them (seasoned with a simple cajun seasoning), and then toss in my wing sauce when they're done. Here's my wing sauce recipe... makes the best wings I've ever had... but I'll admit that I'm biased:

2 c. Frank's (or red devil... but franks tastes way better)
2-3 cloves garlic
2-3 large fresh jalepenos (or about 1/4 c sliced jalepenos)

1/2 - 2/3 c butter

1 tsp each:
onion salt
fresh ground pepper
cayenne pepper (powder)

1/2 tbsp garlic powder

I put the garlic cloves, jalapenos, and some franks in a blender and puree, then put everything else in a saucepan to simmer for 5-10 mins. After its done, i cool it and whisk it in a bowl with a mixture of 3 egg yolks, 1 tsp water, 1 tsp vinegar, 2 tsp corn starch (this helps thicken and holds the butter and water together so the sauce doesn't separate).

Also makes a great buffalo chicken pizza :-) Put sauce on a pizza crust with some chicken, mozzarella cheese, jalapenos and black olives... ranch to dip or put on top after cooking.

I like mine w/o the breading and dipped in my wing sauce. It's a variation of BW3's spicy garlic sauce. Fantastic.

Spicy Garlic

* 1 Cup Frank’s cayenne pepper sauce
* 1/3 Cup vegetable oil
* 1 Teaspoon granulated sugar
* 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
* ˝ teaspoon course ground black pepper
* ˝ teaspoon cayenne pepper
* ˝ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
