Chicken Wings

Spread Your Wings

Tommy, August 31 2022

My father and I meet for breakfast regularly at our favorite diner on the planet. We always go at the same time, sit at the same table, and order the same thing; coffee and the hash special with eggs, well-done homefries and wheat toast. We've had it a hundred times.

Best Dry Rub Wings!

Tommy, July 6 2022

Ever since I was old enough to squirt ketchup on my french fries at the diner, I have been a lover of "external sauces." Every chef's nightmare, I reach for the A-1 Spicy for my 32 oz ribeye steak. I wanted to get married in the condiments aisle at the grocery store, but my wife wouldn't have it.

At the beginning of my senior year in high school, in the fall of 1981, exactly zero people went into a Connecticut restaurant and ordered a plate of chicken wings. They simply weren’t on anybody’s menu. And why would they be? While some restaurants used them for soup stock, chicken wings (like chicken necks, backs and feet today) were a part of th...

Tommy, April 11 2022

When you think about a chef, do you conjure up images of the TV celebrity chefs like Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay, Alton Brown, Giada, or the Pioneer Woman? Over the years, especially since 2020, it seems like the Food Channel shows have become more popular than ever, many of them featuring cooking challenges and highlighting top chefs from...

Connecticut "Hot Ones!"

Tommy, March 28 2022

Sean Evans has gained fame through his series called “Hot Ones” on the First We Feast YouTube channel. There, he interviews celebrities while taking them through a series of ten very hot wings as they sweat, laugh and cry. I mean it’s funny to watch people suffer, right? It just is.

Stay Classy, Wingaddicts!

Tommy, November 15 2021

When we started Wingaddicts in February 2020, we had a vision of creating a Facebook (and social media) community of people who love chicken wings as much as we do. Well it’s been a labor of love and, thus far, mission accomplished. As an entrepreneur who has done business all over the world, I’m not naive. I know what happens to any group of peopl...
