It's that time of year again! I love college football!

We did smoked wings, but not smofried... I did the Alton Brown bit of steaming the wings for 10 minutes; this is to get the skin and fat rendered a bit, and seemed to work without the added fat of frying.

The wings then go on a rack on a cookie sheet and in the fridge, uncovered, for an hour.

Then I lined a pan (iron skillet this time) with foil, separating them in halves, simply because I wanted mine spicier than my wife wanted hers.

I put on a combo of Nando's Peri-Peri sauces... Her wings got Wild Herb and Garlic, and mine got Sweet & Hot and Garlic.

On the Bubba Keg for about 45 minutes at 250. They were at about 170 when I took them off. No added butter, these were about 1 point each for Weight Watchers. Add the bleu cheese dressing, and I had 3 more points, for a total of 15 for a dozen. Worth it for game day! And they were spicy by the end!!! (mine were, at least) But a good spice.

I know how you meant it... just sadly won't happen. Well, not sadly. :)

Mike, the wings were a bit spicy, but in a good way. The Nando's Peri-Peri sauce is my favorite for wings.

The skin was bite through.. not crisp, but easily bite through.

And changing the mug to Penn State would only get it in the garbage. :)

When they are plated like that they look like they are from a collage bar.

I wasn't going for crisp. And I don't know how I'd put them near the coals... I usually use a grate. I was going for smoked, not fried or grilled.

Thanks. :) But most college bars I've seen would probably just throw them somewhere near a plate, hoping they get to the table, spilling beer along the way. :)

Actually, I was in Columbus last Spring, right across from the OSU campus, in an area that used to have dive bars with beer spilled all over the place... It's all been replaced with fancy storefronts, a great bar & grill.. it's just kind of wrong!

Rich, why would i want an ugly mug in the photo? I'd have to break it, take the shards, and gouge my eyes out.

And I'm not happy with the Ilini this year... My wife is going to that game, and I get to stay home.. sucks big time.

But can you imagine how great they would be with a couple of Alabama mugs filled with your favorite beverage???:-D:-D:-D

What I do know is that those wings, with any logo other than THE Ohio State University, would only be inferior to these.

We can agree to disagree with college football. But it is almost as bad as looking at these mugs. :biggrin:
