I've had Hmong wings before, and you're right. They really are great.
I've also had a little experience in preparing them. About 2 minutes worth at which point I said to Hell with it. It was a bridge too far.
I don't know where you are in Door County but I do know there's a large Hmong population in Wisconsin. I'm thinking, however, of the Appleton and Wausau areas. If there's a sizable group of Hmong near where you are there may be a market that caters to them with deboned wings on offer. If that doesn't work, ask the people at the restaurant if they do it themselves, and if not, what there source is. Also consider asking the restaurant if they will sell you some unprepared deboned wings.
I spent a lot of time working with the Hmong in Laos many years ago and find it funny that, although its been a very long time, I don't recall ever eating anything even remotely resembling those wings. Guess it's kind of like Chinese or Mexican foods in that once it goes through an assimilation process in the U.S., the dishes end up being items that you'll never find in the native countries.
