Sean Evans Learns How to Make Real-Deal Buffalo Wings | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Mar 21, 2017
  • To help out all the Hot Ones fans looking to create their own wings challenges at home, First We Feast's Sean Evans sets out to discover the secrets of making proper Buffalo wings from scratch. To learn the poultry arts, he taps Dan Borowski and John Henninger of Dan & John's Wings in the East Village, who flex their Buffalo pedigree during a no-frills cooking tutorial. Armed with fresh, farm-raised chicken, a vat of soybean oil, and a stockpile of Frank's RedHot, these upstate natives will show you the keys to making crispy, no frills drums and flats at home.

    Save for the blue cheese (I hate blue cheese anything), these look amazing. I always have to instruct cooks whenever I order wings here in Nebraska on how to properly sauce a batch of wings. I like them messy and I like them just shy of molten. If I'm not sweating by the time I've devoured the batch, then that sauce isn't spicy enough. Seriously, I don't know what it is about Nebraskans and not being able to handle the spicy... seriously, when in doubt, add a bunch of cayenne and when you think it's more than YOU can bear, add some more. That sauce should have a nice deep red color from all the cayenne, cause if you're selling "extra spicy wings" then they'd better damn well be spicy! Also, I like a lake of hot sauce in the bottom of my dish, cause the sauce on the wings themselves will evaporate all their moisture away and after the first few, I definitely long for more sauce to wet them back up again. Admittedly, I might be a bit of a pain-in-the-ass as a customer, but trust me, the end result is a much better product!

    13 minutes at 365 is completely overcooked isn't it? I usually pull between 7 and 9 minutes at the absolute max. Maybe they aren't really cooking at that high of a temp the whole time. If you really want them to be the best, toss em in white rice flour before dropping it oil. It makes for a very light crisp breading and maintains it's crunch for a while before seeming stale.

    Wrong ...
    Best method, especially at home, is steam (best) or bake on low heat ahead of time. This keeps them very moist and tender. Chill them till serving time (up to one day). When time to serve fry them in oil or crisp them in a very hot oven. Then toss in the sauce like they said.
    I'm not sure it's the original way. But it's possibly the best way, it can be done in most homes and it makes it easy to prepare a lot of wings all at once.

    I thought they were gonna show some next level wings. A toddler could make these. Everyone in the world knows it's deep fried wings with Frank's Red Hot with butter!
    Better & healthier way: 1- coat wings with flour, salt, pepper and paprika. 2- Put wings on baking tray with a couple table spoon of Olive oil brushed on the tray. 3- Cook at 400 F, flip them a few times and cook until crispy. 4- Mix Frank's with butter. Add onion and garlic powder (optional). 5- Mix both together well when both are hot still!

    The fact that some random women in buffalo served Blue cheese as the dipping sauce for her drunk son and friends should not make it valid. ffs

    This video is spot on, except the cook have to know how to judge when a wing is done! If you add to many wings then they need more time to cook and vice versa. I like to throw them on a super hot grill after they have been sauced and that butter on them will char them wings real fast, only takes 2 or 3 minutes on the grill....then add some more sauce and enjoy!
