Wings
 
Just in time for the Super Bowl parties! These wings are guaranteed to beat a sharp stick in the eye.

I've been cooking up my own wings for several years now, and they've always been very good. Normally I either toss them on the grill or deep fry them. However today I decided to try a new attempt - double frying.

So grab yourself a bunch of wings, and chop them up like normal. Then bring your oil to about 250. Toss the wings in there, and let them cook for about 20 minutes between 250 and 275 before pulling them out and allowing them to drain on a cooling rack. Once the wings are good and cool, crank that oil up to 375, and toss the wings back in for another 5 minute fry. Extract, drain, and toss them in your favorite wing sauce.

The first bite will cause your life to flash before your eyes. Everything will move in slow motion, and doves will fly up like you're in a John Woo flick. The wings are crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. In short, they are absolutely perfect.


Enjoy!

:lol: Well there's always a place at my table for good salmon.

Anyways seriously if you want to learn some of the basics of frying or barbecuing, check out a few episodes of Good Eats. The show ended a while back, but Food Network and the Cooking channel both show reruns, and there's always Youtube. You won't be a master chef or anything, but you can learn quite a bit from just that show alone.

That, and the fear of a horrific oil burn or fire, lol.

Well there is always that. :lol:


If you want, you can always try Alton Brown's method of steaming the wings first and baking them to get the crispiness. I've never done it myself, so I can't attest to it, but the principle makes sense.

I DVR those reruns and watch during free time. Great way to learn things, plus it's nice to have a ton of episodes at your fingertips.

Used to subscribe to the "goodeatscomplete" channel on YT, but the Scripps network slowly got the videos all taken down due to copyright violation or something along those lines. It sucks because I could watch the episodes that I didn't have DVR'd at the time, and now I no longer can.

Yeah man I've been a Good Eats fan since the beginning. I generally keep a bunch of episodes on DVR as well, and I refer back to them when I need to refresh myself on certain techniques.

My mom didn't teach me how to do everything I know how to do... Is that unusual?

Not at all. There's at least a few things that would have been weird if mom taught me how to do them.

She must not have taught him the lesson of respect your elders, So Spurrier decided to give him that lesson.
