                    Tips for Making Perfect
                        Buffalo Wings
•   The following was originally posted by G. Schaeffer.
•   The key to good Buffalo Wings is how you prepare them as well as the ingredients
    and the handling of the wings. The most successful wings served up here in
    Buffalo are what they call "Grade A Grinders." Fresh wings that are very large and
    meaty. Usually, you cannot get them in a frozen package, but can get them from a
    poultry dealer. Once you find them make sure they are absolutely fresh.
•   Wash them in cold water, split them at the joint and remove the tips. Place them
    on a rack on a pan and refrigerate overnight to let the blood and water drain out of
    the wings. THIS IS A REAL KEY. Drying the wings under refrigeration will help to
    make them a much crispier product, once deep fried.
•   Next, use a deep fryer or a very heavy deep pot with a thermometer and add the
    oil. Peanut oil is very good, or a commercial product such as can be found at a
    restaurant cash and carry called Mel Fry.
•   Heat the oil up SLOWLY, to 365 degrees F, and depending on the size of the
    fryer, deep fry the dry wings 6 to 8 minutes in small batches, until thoroughly done
    and golden brown. Hold the cooked wings in a warm oven if necessary.
•   A combination of melted margarine and hot sauce in the ratio of 1 part margarine
    to 3 parts hot sauce will add the right zing. The key here is to add just enough
    sauce to coat the wings - the more sauce you add, the hotter they will be.
•   For the very brave, 1 part margarine to 3 parts hot sauce and 1 part Tabasco is
    referred to as "Suicidal Wings" by the late and dear Don Bellissimo, who owned
    the Anchor Bar.

                              Ice Tea ---
• Place 3 to 4 pans of cold water on to boil
• After water starts to boil turn off heat
• Be very careful not to touch the tea bag or the inside of the
  pitcher with your hands, as your hands (even clean) have
  bacteria that will cause the tea to sour. Pick the tea bag up on
  the tip and drop it carefully in the water
• Place one gallon tea bag into each pan of water and let steep (to
  soak in water or other liquid extract some constituent) for at least
  3 to 5 minutes – we will generally use five minutes
• Drain “tea” into a ½ gallon pitcher, removing the tea bag
  squishing the water out of the tea bag with the back of a mixing
  spoon. Remember do not touch the tea bag!
• Into separate ½ gallon pitchers, divided the liquid into two equal
  parts.
• Add 1 cup sugar to each pitcher for sweetened.
• Finish filling the pitchers with water, place cover on pitcher,
  remembering which one is sweet and which is unsweetened.
