Awesome, thanks Westy, I had actually spent some time looking for such a thing and failed. Guess I should have used the brand name in the search.

I just found a place that sells fresh organic chillies nearby so I definitely want to roll my own. Agree fresh for this sort of thing is best.

Making my first batch of homemade* wings today. Will report back.

*Gonna use Frank’s sauce though, and some local stuff I finally found, albeit I picked out the mild one by accident. :rolleyes:

As per Westy’s suggestion, did some fucking around and finding out.

2 things:

1) Organic fair trade refill-only store Cayenne is 3x spicier than regular supermarket bought.

2) I really like Frank’s.

IMO wingsauce is a waste. Just get regular franks, add butter, garlic, cayenne or whatever for your preference. Then you have Frank's for scrambled eggs which is as good as wings IMO.

Baking powder low/high temp bake method, Frank’s combo wing and spicy sauce base.

Nailed it if I do say so myself. This is the pub-tastic crunchy taste I am after.

I got wing sauce on my phone, lol.

Cuisinart Air Fryer shit the bed. In the market for a better one. The Cuisinart supplied tray was always inadequate. I would like additional capacity as I mostly like to have enough to share. Recommendations are appreciated.

Saturday night wangs. Went to Moore Wilson’s for a load of other bits and got wholesale free-range wings as a bonus. Amazingly slightly cheaper than supermarket evil wings and the meat is so much better. It is so much more ‘substantial’ compared to evil meat.

Did the bageplover method again wit’ low/high oven but added cayenne powder to the baking powder.

Great happy chicken wings. I chopped all the tips off.

Coated in baking powder and cayenne and ready to be bottom-baked for 130°C for half hour.

So I didn’t get a shot of a coated wing because the fam was hungry. Here is the out of oven product and the sauce though. I did 50/50 Frank’s wing and Frank’s spicy again, slightly lower than recommended butter, plus salt pinches. The Cayenne in the rub is ftw, helps colour and underlying fat flavour for the better.

Also free range meat is sooo much better even in these ‘off cut’ cuts.

10/10 will hit it again.

damn yinzers.
Glen (Yinzer to the core) makes his wings with Boneless Thighs. Takes them out of package, fries the shit out of them skin on. No brine seasoning or anything. Sauces them and finishes them on the grill. Adds Mustard to his hot sauce. Franks and butter and some Haberno seasoning which he will not tell me where it comes from. Crazy hot. He hates blue cheese. He makes Hot wing sauced pierogis with the same sauce. Oh my... Serves Bacon as a appetizer. His sister is a Nurse here so he visits a lot. I am totally on board with the fry and grill process. I prefer wings instead of thighs however. He makes the most delicious Pork Roll breakfast sandwich's also. Buckwheat waffles with Pecans and Honey. Cool guy.

There's a restaurant nearby that fries then grills their wings.

Basically blend 50/50ish wing sauce with butter. Grab a mug, put in a big chunk of butter, melt it in the microwave, pour in an approx. same amount of wingsauce, mix thoroughly, done. You can add a little bit of sugar if you like too, kids prefer it, me; meh. Cook the wings and then dip in the cup when you’re ready to eat. It’s a bit ghetto but it saves a lot of sauce vs. pouring it everywhere.

Wing sauce is Franks and butter, so you add more butter?
