The even higher prices of chicken wings - Page 5

post #81 of 87

Along with necks, I remember using them for crabbing. How about a new bar goodie: "Buffalo Chicken Feet" might take the buying pressure off the wings31.gif

 

A few weeks ago, our local Food Lion had a big sale on them, about 1/3 the normal price, too many in stock I believe, so I stocked up.

I feel it only right to issue a public apologize for my contribution to the wing shortage from my hard drinking days.  cheers.gif

 

 

Seriously, sucks that the prices have been driven so far up.  I put the hurt on some wings over the last couple of decades, and they're still a family favorite.

Goes to show you though , once something gets popular, it goes up . . .$$$$$$

 

Just like Flank Steak and Brisket. . . normally a waste , but . . .

I found some relief. We have a new reasturant up the road called wild wing cafe and they have all you can eat wings for 10.99 M-F.... I wear them out.....

I guess its me age talking but I have quit eating wings! I refuse to pay that much for them when I can get 10# of hind quarters for less than 5.00! I freeze the thighs for gumbos, jambalayas, chicken and dumplins, or even just to fry. I tear up those legs just like wing drumettes with real meat on them.

 

I used to get turkey thighs from a friendly butcher. Everyone wants legs! I'll take a thigh anytime, they are more tender and they don't have those hard tendons!...LOL I live in south Louisiana, seafood is inexpensive so I need to find out how to get it on the smoker, smoked crab, smoked oysters, smoked crawfish, smoked shrimps, etc etc etc. I wonder if ya could smoke gator.....Hmmmmm

 

 

 

BTW Take a minute today and remember those who sacrificed so we could enjoy a day off.
