For the guys saying there is only 2 wings per chicken, you're neglecting the way they butcher it to make it 4 wings per chicken.


They're discarding the tip, but serving the drumette and wingette as separate pieces.

Prices have gotten ridiculous at restaurants but not at the grocery store. Also, I like my homemade wings better and I do either the:
  • 30-20-10 method on my BGE or
  • Alton Brown's oven method

    30-20-10 is a more complex, layered flavor and it's my favorite way.

    I was just about to mention this. Four "wings" per bird.

    This dump by my house sells the entire wing, tip and all. Markets them as "jumbo". Sometimes they still have pinfeathers and the occasional claw!

  • Some places do that.

    Better places serve them as one single piece and allow you to have all the fun.

    I rarely go out for wings. I prefer to grill or bake them. I like making my own sauces or using Franks straight, not the butter sauce.

    $1.00 per wing is absurd, and that seems to be the going rate.

    We had a great place where I used to work that had a ten cent night, and their wings were excellent, very meaty and perfectly crunchy. We used to go in with the entire work crew and order up platters of a couple hundred of them.

    Sadly both the workplace and the bar are gone.

    BWW is horrid, I wouldn't go in there to use the bathroom.




    I have my own style of humor. I call it Snarkasm.

    A tiny bit of butter melted into the Frank's helps it adhere to the wings. Trust me.


    Yes, the butter "waters down" the heat of straight Frank's, but you can overcome that by adding a bit of something hotter, like a few dashes of tobasco or habanero.

    I'll give it a shot. The franks wing sauce with butter is too much for me.

    I prefer just baking my own. I used to deep fry but baking is so much easier for only slight decrease in tastiness. Much cheaper for not much work if baking them yourself.

    What irritated me the most was the upcharges for extra dipping sauces. I like my homemade ranch better anyway.

    Yeah, goodness no. Don't buy the "Frank's wing sauce" nonsense.

    Melt in your own butter when you make the sauce. And like I said, it will "water down" the heat a bit, so be prepared to add something back.

    It doesn't take much, perhaps 1 tablespoon of butter to.. I don't know, 1/4 or 1/2 cup Frank's? I never measure it, I just eyeball it into a plastic bowl.

    Right at the joint of the wingette and the tip, hard protuberance. Very claw like.

    All this chicken wing talk made me stop by the store and pick some up. I soak mine in Franks original or Louisiana hot sauce for at least 4 hours if in a hurry like today. 24 hours is better. Smoke for 30 minutes then over medium heat for the rest of the time. I tried the wing sauce, It's OK but more tangy than heat. Stubbs also makes a wing marinade.

    This could be combined with the thread in the lounge about franchises, but it's always something to keep in mind. We often hear complaints about what goods and services cost, but most have no idea what type of investment is involved.


    A Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant costs between $2,000,000 and $3,000,000. Franchisees must front $750,000 in liquid cash.

    Average weekly sales are just under $60,000.

    Most of the other numbers are kept confidential, but I did find this for two of these restaurants that were being auctioned.

    Location 1) 2011 Net Sales: $1,861,008, Net Income: $214,578

    Location 2) 2011 Net Sales $1,116,267, Net Income $11,882

    So as you can see, just a few percentage points off of your sales figures, and you're out of business.

    Local wing places have done the same thing. Pushing $1.00 a wing. Made up my mind to never go back. It's been almost a year now.

    I go buy big packages of chicken drumsticks and do them like wings at home. Way more meat and taste just as good and can feed four people for what one platter of wings would run me at a restaurant.

    It is a trend - and I'm no longer a part of it.

    Have any of you tried the lemon-pepper dry rub at BWW? It's actually pretty darn good and best of all the wings remain nice and crunchy. I usually do a mixture of the lemon pepper and honey habanero.

    First, without Bones, they aren't Fracking Chicken Wings. They are chicken bites originally meant for the kids.
