Tips for Making Perfect
• 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.
