    Air fryer Pirogies. Cannot believe how good they were... We used Sauer Kraut and sauteed Mushrooms instead of Bacon and Onions. No Butter or Sour Cream either...

    When i was looking at how to use mine, i accidentally hit the button to release the 2 parts of the basket and sent it to the floor. Dented the metal catcher and broke a small piece of plastic. Didn't affect the air fryer but still irritated it didn't last 2 minutes out the box unscathed. Thought it gave up on me because the timer was still going but wasn't getting power but it worked after i unplugged it and plugged it back in. When it does go, i will replace it with a better one. Its now my second most used appliance next to my toaster oven.

    fun thread. I hate boston wings. They are all breaded sysco wings that are fatty and grisly. it makes me sad. We've found one place in our current town that does wings well, but they only do buffalo sauce and they do small or large orders (like 8 or 12) not 20, 40, or 7000.

    I've baked wings, which is OK, but there's no replacement for a high quality deep fry. I will have to try the airfryer as I'm getting desperate.

    As for smoking, usually you smoke first (to get the flavor) then throw them on the grill for a few minutes to crisp them up. I tried smoking them once and it was disgusting (as stated) like steaming. Yuck.

    the handle on mine crapped out due to heat distortion, which i find weird for this kind of appliance.

    is there any way to replicate what an airfryer does in a convection over? We have a fancy oven but I don't really know how an airfryer works

    Have you even tried steaming them first? I saw you disliked my post. Steaming first helps keep them moist when they go into bake. Also, as i said, fall of the bone. If you put some hot sauce in with the water, you can infuse it with the meat. Then slather it in hot sauce again to bake. My mama has been doing this for years, even commercially and people love it.

    basically the heat distorted the material enough that the basket handle interface didn't properly align with the tray and it eventually broke from being forced in. it was a philips.

    They work by using coils and fans to superheat air as it flows at high speed through out the system instead of heating stagnant air trapped inside the oven. It creates a much more even cook vs traditional oven. They also use exhaust systems and fresh air to regulate pressure and keep internal parts cool while keeping air hot inside the basket.

    an air fryer is basically a convection oven on steroids. it's a smaller volume and moves the air faster. I don't think you'd be able to achieve the same results.

    My go-to wing spot has great wings. I mostly prefer dry rub wings, but their rub is without any real kick. I talked with one chef and asked him if he could fire them up a bit. He mixed up some cajun + ghost dry season and tossed the wings in that. OMGZ so good. I told the owner his chef took care of me and we started talking about it, and now he's experimenting with different peppers/ratios to get something on the menu. Last experimental plate was a bit over the top but we're getting really close.

    hellz yea man i love a good dry rub wing. IMO dry rub wings are probably the best way to make them in the air fryer. i actually have the recipe for the dino bbq dry rub, and that makes an AWESOME wing.

    Its really tasty. they have a location in Denver, and though I haven't been in a long time that spicy peanut sauce is always worth the trip.

    My friend Jeremy is from Atlanta. I had no idea they had such a huge wing culture there. He makes the best wings I have ever had. Gochuchang style...
