My boys fancy themselves as wing experts. They have to be full of robust flavor, a little crunchy on the outside and fall-off-the-bone inside. It’s for those reasons that I usually don’t try to complete “with the best wings ever” from wherever they last eat.
A colleague, Pat, gave me the recipe for these wings and I thought I’d give it a try and see if they could pass my boys high standards. I must say they were a BIG hit! The recipe makes a large batch so it’s perfect for a cookout, pool party or get-together with friends and family. And they are really easy to make!
