  • 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.

    If you want perfect wings you need to double fry. First fry is longer around 225 degrees to get the inside juicy, second fry is hotter and shorter, around 375 to get the outside nice and crispy.

    So funny because when I was in England in 1980, it was Wendy’s burgers and that’s all you could choose from other than McDonald’s. And in small towns they would give you a cheeseburger but who knows what the hell kind of lean meat it was

    FN rights gents! Anything else is fluff and fern bar crap! Don’t matter if battered or nekkid. Get some crisp, make sure flesh cooked thru. DON’T OVER COOK.

  • Tom The Plummer
    Tom The Plummer 3 months ago

    Right on for deep fry oil choice. Soy is good for chicken. Canola is poison. Palm and safflower is not good. Peanut oil for fish is best unless ya got a whoos kid ya want to wreck the show for everyone. Gimme honey, gimme gluten, gimme nuts, gimme meat fish and fowl. Cooked anyway local. I stop at sea urchin even with a quail egg.

    I wish I liked Blue Cheese. To me it literally, in the literal sense of the word, tastes like a cleaning chemical not food. Super unnatural. Maybe it is something like the cilantro phenomenon and I just don't taste it correctly. That said, I like my wings spicy and as is. Occasionally ranch but I prefer just the hot sauce.

    You guys don't know real wings I'm not taking advice from a TVclip channel heck no I rather go find the best buffalo wing by myself cuz as a preference wise they're basically telling you why they're wings are the best not because you think they are righttt!!?

    But how exactly does hot ones make their wings? Surely they don't do this method with all of the higher tier sauces.

    I give this tutorial a 2/10 and a thumbs down. Extremely basic and lacking. No knowledge of how to elevate the sauce or the cook. These are beginner wings. Given that this was a wing video, you let us down. I was expecting next level knowledge, not beginner basics. Step up your game noobs, your vierership is not as ignorant as you think. Otherwise, why am I wasting my time here?

    This is HALF ****er. They did absolutely nothing to the wing prior to cooking them. Today wing prices have transformed wings into a luxury item. But sadly, preparations like the one in this video have failed to raise their wing game in proportion. Brine them. Or lightly coat them in potato, or corn starch. Or bread them. Put some baking powder during prep. DO SOMETHING!!! don't just toss a raw wing in oil, dress it in some fancy sauce, and sale 7 of them for $10 - 15. You bite in to an untreated wing and you taste its gamey character at worse and at best the wing is simply bland and depends in an unbalanced way on the sauce. Raise your damn game.

    FUNERAL BILL II 6 months ago

    Back in the mid-90s there was a place called "Popeye's Pizza" on the East Side of Buffalo when I lived in my first apartment (and was poor) I used to order the honey BBQ wings on Tuesday because they were 10c wings. I'd order a box of 50 and eat them until Friday...AMAZING wings. Sadly they closed after about a year or two.

    I was born in Buffalo in 1975, lived there until I turned 30 and ran from the snow to sunny Florida. The ONLY thing I miss about Buffalo is the Sabres, Tim Horton's and the food. If you go to Buffalo and want good wings try Avenue Pizza, Anchor Bar (where the Buffalo chicken wing was invented) or Bonettis!!

    I'm from Buffalo and I just moved to Japan. Out of desperation, I ordered wings from Domino's and they came with Ceaser dressing. Couldn't stomach more than one bite. Making my own from now on... if I can find Frank's anywhere.
