They are anti-gun. I don’t go there.

Yahoo just sucks. No stats, no list. Was this an ad for BWW?

Where I live (Miami to south of Orlando), it isn't a contest. Though not franchised, Duffy's rules the roost. 2 for 1 all the time (picture for link):

Smart owners. They buy out other failed establishments and avoid high start up costs. Once they hit Orlando, it will be all over. The North Miami location has 300 flat screens. I don't even like them, but I can't deny their success.

They are all about college towns and ... well, you know the rest. :^)

Their commercials are annoying to the point that they make me angry. But everything's going to be alright...

I make my own chicken “nuggets” that are better than any hot wings. Sliced chunks of chicken breast grilled and repeatedly dipped in a blend of Franks Hot Sauce, Tabasco and cayenne pepper. No bones, gristle, fat.

Think I’ll warm up some leftovers from last night and crack open a cold one.

Making my own wings as I type. Sauce is cooking - a combination of Franks/butter/jalapenos/habaneros/onions/garlic/salt/habanero powder/white pepper/cayenne pepper/black pepper/cumin/lemon juice/honey/ketchup.

Just getting ready to start the fryer.

It’s a thickener. Nothing more - and just a little.

Also, since a lot of the heat in the recipe cooks off, I like to add a few drops of Dave’s Insanity sauce at the end. Tough stuff.

That’s quite a production there. I’ll have to check out the habanero powder. The hottest wings I’ve ever had were at, oddly enough, Yellowstone Lodge about fifteen years ago. They left your lips red.

BWW is actually a good time, and a great idea (wish I had thought of it). It’s where men and sports-minded women can get away and watch an NFL or college game for a few hours without a hassle. Nothing wrong with it at all, imo.

I make “General Joe’s Chicken.” Boneless breasts cut into fingers, left to marinade for a day or so in mesquite bbq sauce, Jamaican jerk spices (thyme, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, scotch bonnet peppers), and a little dash of Tabasco.

Toss ‘em on George Foreman for about 3-4 minutes and enjoy!

I bought a bunch of habanero powder online a few years ago and vacuum packed/froze much of it. Don’t let it get near your nose or you’ll sneeze for 10 minutes.

Buffalo Wild Wings takes the cake

That's nice. During the one and only time that I'll ever be in there, the iced tea tasted like dishwater. (And the wings were tiny.)

Tried a new choice at my favorite local Oriental restaurant recently. Was not familiar with the sliced red veggie in it. I was pretty sure it was a habanero after several minutes of intense sweating. The waitress asked if I accidentally ate one when I inquired about what they were. When I told her I ate it intentionally she said she had no pity for me then.

Too bad that their wings suck, and they are expensive.

Just noticed, and love the siameserescue.org tagline. This is what they entrusted me with, and I thank them every single day:

Beautiful! SR placed two under our roof, and sent notice of two others that we saved from the ‘Green Mile’...

She’s a mutt - her brother wasn’t even a siamese. They classified her as Lilac though. Thus her name - Lilly. I think that was taken the first week I had her. Who puts her in a shelter??

Ate there once. I ordered the Atomic Wings. I almost died. I turned bright red, was close to hallucinating and couldn’t tell what anything else tasted like for several hours. The tea was wet. That’s all that mattered.

My husband still likes to joke about taking me there if I’ll order the same wings. Evidently, I was quite amusing.

My homemade wings are made with butter and Franks and a dash of Cholula Chipolte. Hot enough for me and they aren’t lethal.

Thanks for sharing the sauce recipe.

A great post for a Sunday afternoon.

Just use the food processor and make sure all the veggies are minced. Add the powders to the Franks/butter first. Wait awhile, then add the veggies.

It’s best to then put it in the fridge for a couple of hours and pull it out to scrape the butterfat off the top (but who can wait?).

Then reheat and add the rest.

(but who can wait?).

Hence my penchant for a fast fix. The conversation usually starts: I'm craving some hot wings. Guess I'll get extra the next time so I can have now and later.
