This past weekend found me back in DC ( I lived there in 2006) for my good friend Dave’s annual BBQ and boy did we throw down. Yes there were kegs, pies, water gun fights, beer pong, and pork shoulder (30 freaking pounds of smoky greatness), but the event also featured my newest addiction…Old Bay chicken wings!
I have Kramer to thank for introducing me to his version of the Serious Eats recipe from earlier this year. I bumrushed the grill as soon as I heard the words “wing” and “Old Bay” and camped out right beside him eating as much chicken as I could until the last wing was doled out. I had them not more than 58 hours ago and I cannot stop thinking about them. Everything I have ingested since Saturday has been meh.
With only a few more weeks to go until “grillin season” is over…I beg you to bring these to your table and experience the greatness of these wings. Enjoy!
