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.
