...ASAT Top Five Chicken Wing Flavors

1. Classic Buffalo. 2 parts Frank's Red Hot, 1 part margarine, garlic powder
2. Jamaican jerk.
3. Any generic Chinese glaze
4. Grilled with lime and honey marinade
5. BW3's Spicy Garlic

Hon. Mention: Spicy/sweet BBQ and any of the 'too hot to eat more than seven wings' flavors.

Worst flavor: Honey mustard. This isn't 5th grade.

How'sabout you?

I make a variation of number 1 and use it on crispy thin cut fries. Try using unsalted butter (one tablespoon) and fresh REAL garlic.

I'm not a fan of how butter melts for wings, although I suppose some ghee would work. As for the garlic, I'm partial to the coating properties of the dried stuff.

I worked in a crappy restaurant one summer and spent most of my time tweaking the recipe. You can add extra salt and red pepper if you want the people at the bar to drink more.

I dig the really hot BBQ sauce at BW3.

A shout out for dry wings - Quaker Steak has a couple of good varieties. It drives me nuts to get wings that are nothing but slimy messes.

Native WVian living on west coast here (Seattle). I know none of you really care about wings out here, but I'm leaving this comment anyway.

For making your own wings, I don't think you can beat Wingtime. It's thick and clings to the wing, while maintaining constant flavor. Try the garlic, medium, or hot. Extra hot is only for those who dislike and wish to punish their own assholes. Mild is for pussies. You can buy it from their site, if you want to trust the word of a stranger.

As for wing joints, the local place in Seattle is Wingdome. It sucks. The sauces are good, but the meat quality is pretty bad unless you opt for their insane 7-star wing. BW3's is better, and I don't think they're anything special.

The best wings I have ever had, and I've had LOTS of wings, spent most of my life in the midwest, etc... are from Fire on the Mountain in Portland, OR. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks, anon.

I'm in Seattle from time to time, but it sounds like I need to make it to Portland the next time I'm out yonder.
