Chicken wings

The key to good Buffalo Wings is how you prepare them as well as the
ingredients and the handling of the wings. The most successful wings
served up here in Buffalo are what they call "Grade A Grinders." Fresh
wings that are very large and meaty. Usually, you cannot get them in
a frozen package, but can get them from a poultry dealer. Once you
find them make sure they are absolutely fresh. Wash them in cold
water, split them at the joint and remove the tips. Place them on a
rack on a pan and refrigerate overnight to let the blood and water
drain out of the wings. THIS IS A REAL KEY. Drying the wings under
refrigeration will help to make them a much crispier product, once
deep fried. Next, use a deep fryer or a very heavy deep pot with a
thermometer and add the oil. Peanut oil is very good, or a commercial
product such as can be found at a restaurant cash and carry called Mel
Fry. Heat the oil up SLOWLY, to 365F, and depending on the size of the
fryer, deep fry the dry wings 6-8 minutes in small batches, until
thoroughly done and golden brown. Hold the cooked wings in a warm oven
if necessary. A combination of melted margarine and hot sauce in the
ratio of 1 part margarine to 3 parts hot sauce will add the right
zing. The key here is to add just enough sauce to coat the wings - the
more sauce you add, the hotter they will be. For the very brave, 1
part margarine to 3 parts hot sauce and 1 part Tabasco is referred to
as "Suicidal Wings" by the late and dear Don Bellissimo, who owned the
Anchor Bar. Working quickly, place the deep fried wings in a large
bowl and add the sauce mixture, shaking to coat them. There are many
good hot sauces to use; the one they use is either Durkee Franks Red
Hot Sauce or Wingers Original, again found in a restaurant cash and
carry. Celery sticks and chunky blue cheese dressing (Ken's Buffalo
Style Blue Cheese is a popular one) and plenty of napkins. From
