What are you cooking today for the Super Bowl? My party plans include some wings - as usual - and some chips. Mrs. Arrowhead Pride made soup this weekend so she’s having some of that.
Let’s get to my world famous wing recipe. Drop your plans in the comments.
Preparing the rub
Put your wings in a bag or some sort of bowl you can cover. Combine these spices together. Put the spices in with the wings and coat the wings. Let them sit for an hour or more. If you are concerned about how hot these will be, you can just slow down on the pepper.
Pepper (two tablespoons)
Onion powder (one tablespoon)
Chili powder (one tablespoon)
Garlic powder (one tablespoon)
Seasoned salt (one tablespoon)
Cooking the wings
You've got your wings that have been sitting in the rub for a while now. If you keep the wings in the fridge, take them out and let them sit for a few minutes in room temperature. The key to the wings is smoking them. If you have a smoker, you probably know how to handle this. If you don't, you can just put them on indirect heat on your grill and it will have a similar effect. Smoke them for 25-30 minutes on one side, flip them and smoke them for another 25-30 minutes on the other side.
You can cook these however you want really. Put them in the oven. Throw them on the grill. Just cook the way that's easiest for you.
Preparing the sauce
While your wings are cooking, you'll make the sauce. Take these three ingredients and put them together in a sauce pan and heat them up. If that seems like a lot of honey for you, feel free to cut back a little bit on that one cup. I'm from Kansas City so the type of barbecue sauce I use is a big thing. Just pick out whatever your favorite barbecue sauce is and use that. After you have cooked the wings on either side, bring them in and throw this sauce on them and mix it up.
Honey (one cup)
Barbecue sauce (half cup)
Apple juice (three tablespoons)
Getting the crispy skin
I like my wings to have a slightly crispy skin. So after you've smoked them on either side and put the sauce on them, I like to throw them back on the grill over more direct heat for a few minutes to get that crispy skin. Watch them carefully because they can burn quickly.

Season roast with salt and pepper. Brown all sides of roast in hot oil in a large skillet over high heat. Place in a 6-qt. slow cooker. Add banana pepper rings, beef broth, and garlic. Cover and cook on LOW 8 hours or until meat shreds easily. Transfer to a cutting board, reserving liquid in slow cooker. Shred roast; return to slow cooker. Keep warm on LOW. Preheat oven to 350°. Place tortilla chips on a baking sheet; top with shredded beef, black beans, tomatoes, onion, and cheese. Bake 10 minutes. Serve with cilantro, avocado, and sour cream.
I cannot throw a party without making this recipe. It's fast, easy and my kids love it.
Kelsey turns an Italian classic into bite-size Chinese-fusion fare by tucking the sandwich ingredients into egg roll wrappers and frying them until brown. She tucks a basil leaf into each egg roll and serves them with a marinara dipping sauce to enhance the Italian flavors.
What kind of wine would go well with buffalo wings? Jennifer Eckinger, executive director of the Pennsylvania Winery Association, says pick something to counterbalance the spice. "Seven Mountains Riesling which is a sweeter Riesling from Seven Mountains vineyards. Also, we had selected a Vidal blanc from Nissley vineyards, that’s an unoaked white that tends to have a nice crisp finish to it. And we also put Germanic style fruit forward dry red from Galen Glen, Zweigelt."
Very few people get mad about a food wrapped in bacon. Think about it: people go crazy for water chestnuts wrapped in the salty pork product, and water chestnuts are the world’s most boring food. (Seriously, they have "water" in their name, which is devoid of flavor and fun.) So, you could wrap water chestnuts in bacon, but those usually need a sauce, and there are a lot of great, sauceless options.
You’ll never go back to store-bought guacamole again once you see how easy it is to make this fresh, simple dip.
"This is similar to the hot wings recipe served at a popular restaurant chain. If you have ever had them, you have to love them."
These crispy chicken wings get their heat from Sriracha, the Thai hot sauce that chef Michael Symon says is his favorite in the world. "We always have a couple of extra bottles at home, because my stepson blows right through the stuff."
