    Other than with a flame, how do you guys remove the little hairs on chicken wings? Some batches are really clean and others not so much.

    I almost always wash chicken under cold running water and scratch or pluck out any hairs or feathers I find while I'm at it. I usually smoke chicken indirectly for about 1.5 hrs and then brown them a bit and sauce. Any "hairs" I miss get burned off then.

    Not sure where you are getting your chicken wings but the perdue wings I get at sams are usually pretty clean. To cook, I usually steam the wings for 10min and cool on a wire rack (recipe from Alton Brown) prior to cooking in the oven or on the grill. The steaming seems to get rid of a lot of the fat and helps crisp up the wings. It might also knock off the fine feathers. Give it a try.

    I've had bad luck several times from both brand name like Jennie-O and the ones packed at the local markets.

    Ive always wanted to like chicken wings. But the amount of work for a morsel of meat just never clicked with me. Try whatever you might do with wings with drumsticks instead. Roughly half the price, still dark meat, and much better bite factor. Actually get a satisfying bite of meat from them.

    Back in 91-93 I lived in robinsdale, right across from crystal lake. The best chicken I ever had was on west Broadway heading into the city. It was a soul food place by the strip joint. Damn they could make some good chicken.

    I know that area as I used to work in Minneapolis and sometimes cut over on broadway during snow storms or accidents on the freeways. It's a pretty tough neighborhood these days. A person definitely wouldn't be wise to walk around there wearing any MAGA clothing if they value their wellbeing.

    Funny thing is if you head just a handful of blocks east you get into the ultra eccentric St. Anthony neighborhood.

    Most of the "hair" I find can be easily/quickly plucked or scratched off while I'm washing the wings.
