How about a Chicken Wing Judging?
It's funny because when I first approached the VIP tent for judging, I was wearing my Lord of the Wings t-shirt. The MC for the event saw me and was like "Lord of the Wings? Lord of the Wings? You're at the wrong venue!" But there was wing judging, so I wasn't.
Doug Hillier, the event organizer, told me about the wings before the event. He said he could only do 3 restaurants at the Ribfest, but was hoping to expand that in the future. I'm not sure if he meant expanding at Ribfest, or a 'wingfest' on its own, but I support either!
The competition was simple: rate the wings from the 3 restaurants from 1-10, 1 being terrible, 10 being excellent. I was up to the challenge.
The three restaurants were:
I was full from ribs, but I always have room for wings.
I was not told the names of the restaurants that participated - and when I find out I will post. They each did a deep fried wing, but they were all very different.
My guess (again, not knowing the restaurant they came from) is Roxbury - more of a dance club and a bit clueless on good wings.
Classic hot wing. Dusted, deep fried and tossed in a cayenne based hot sauce. Skin was very crispy. The sauce, very spicy, but so good. My winner for sure.
