The Missing (W)ingredient

Tommy, August 31 2021

In this wonderful world of wings, we’re constantly discovering new flavors and new cooking techniques. We tend to go back and revisit our favorite restaurants who do it the best and, every once and a while, we’ll fire up some of the homemade variety. In the Wingaddicts Community on Facebook, I’m impressed and quite often mystified by some of the am...

THE Best Smoked Wings

Tommy, August 23 2021

“Who has the best wings?” It’s a question we get every single day when we meet new Wingaddicts. “It’s an impossible question to answer,” is the only way to honestly reply. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. Or the “wing-holder” in this case. Stay with me . . . In addition to the fact that there are different sizes of wings and hundreds of...

FULL SEASON SIX RECAP

Tommy, July 18 2021

Starting with the last week in February 2021 and right up through the middle of July, we overcame lots of scheduling conflicts to shoot 21 episodes over 19 weeks to put together Wingaddicts Season Six: “So Many Wings, So Little Time.” During that span we also filmed four priceless RELAPSE episodes at J.Timothy’s, Tuck’s Tavern, TK’s American Cafe,...

PIZZA JOINT WINGS!

Tommy, July 13 2021

When I’m in the mood for a good pizza, I will do one of two things. I’ll either get some dough and some toppings and make one homemade, or (in 75% of the cases) I’ll either visit or order takeout from a pizza place. I’ve never ordered pizza from a Chinese restaurant, a Mexican place, a deli, or a barbecue joint. Never.

Wing Eating MVP's

Tommy, July 5 2021

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 20 years, you’ve heard the name Joey Chestnut. No, he’s not a mob boss but he’s a BOSS nonetheless. Yesterday, on July 4, Chestnut won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Championship on Coney Island, NY for the 14th time in the last 15 years. Wasn’t even close. Chestnut set a new World Record by eating 7...

CT's 25 BEST Buffalo Wings

Tommy, July 1 2021

What is a perfect buffalo wing? Who serves the perfect buffalo wing? Created by accident in the early sixty’s when Terresa Bellissimo mixed up some Franks Red Hot with butter and poured it over some wings for her son and his buddies at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY with some salad dressing to lower the heat, for years and years, “buffalo” was about the...

Let's Talk Air Fryers

Tommy, June 21 2021

If you’re anything like me, (normally after an early morning info-mercial or a casual stroll through Macy’s) you’ve been suckered into every new-fangled kitchen gadget ever created. From a Fry Daddy to the George Foreman Grill, from waffle makers to giant electric woks, from food processors to mixers, from fondu pots to a panini press, we use them...

What Would YOU Do?

Tommy, June 14 2021

It’s not easy to run a bar or a restaurant. Between paying the bills, ordering the supplies, hiring, training and managing the staff, dealing with unreasonable customers and the social media police it’s remarkable that so many people get into the profession. I think about that when I have dining experiences that are “less than ideal.” I’m not a com...

Are Wings Healthy?

Tommy, June 7 2021

OK, full disclosure, I am not a doctor although I do sometimes play one on Wingaddicts episodes and I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express one time back in the 90’s. I am not the person you should emulate if a “healthy lifestyle” is your goal. Just look at my profile! Haha, I’m a man of excess. If it feels good, do it. And do it a lot! There, now we’...

Smoked Wings & CT BBQ Spots

Tommy, May 31 2021

In our passionate quest for Connecticut’s best wings, we occasionally find ourselves drooling outside of a barbecue joint. When most people think of barbecue they think of ribs, brisket, pulled pork, baked beans, corn bread, cole slaw, and half chickens. Wings, are almost always just a little menu afterthought.
