How to Cook the Perfect Wing

We all know Hudsons has the perfect wings, but for those who want to make them at home, here are 3 ways to cook the perfect wing. From the classic deep fryer to maybe a pressure cooker, let’s get to makin’ a crispy af or juicy af wing!

For those who aren’t as fortunate as other with deep fryers, here’s a way to deep fry your wings to get that restaurant quality wing!

Pour a few inches of peanut or vegetable oil into a bottom heavy pot. Heat your oil to 375 degrees. Season wings with salt and pepper. Lower wings carefully into oil with tongs or a spider strainer (if you don’t have the patience to put them in one by one), keeping them in a single layer. Working in batches, fry wings about 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are cooked through. Adjust heat so oil stays within 350 to 375 degrees. Drain on cooling rack. Toss immediately with sauce or serve as is with a dip of your choice.

Not a fan of using an obscene amount of oil? Here’s an option that includes a pot of water, steamer basket and a pan.

Steam the wings in a steamer basket over simmering water in a covered pot for 10 minutes. Pat wings dry with paper towel. Heat a generous amount of cooking oil in large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add wings and cook about 5-8 minutes, turning to brown all sides (you may need to work in batches). Transfer wings to a bowl and toss with your choice of sauce.

For those who live to grill, pop that BudLight, grab your “dad bod is the best bod” apron, and wipe the snow off that patio barbecue that you’ve been aching to fire up.

You know the drill, heat grill to medium-high. Rub wings with a tiny bit of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill for 15 to 25 minutes, turning frequently until they are cooked through. Toss them babies in a bowl with your choice of sauce.

Who doesn’t want to bite into a crunchy exterior and meet a soft juicy middle?

For those in a pinch, grab your pressure cooker and throw in a cup of water and your steamer basket. Season your wings with salt and pepper and drop those bad boys in there. Bring up to high pressure and cook 8 to 10 minutes, allowing pressure to release naturally. Carefully remove wings, brush with olive oil and broil for a few minutes on each side (if you want that crispy bite).

Slow cookers are magical; you put 3-4 things in a pot, go to work, and come home to a meal with little to no effort needed. Mix a knob of melted butter, a bottle of Buffalo wing sauce, and honey in your slow cooker. Add your wings and cook on low for five to six hours. Broil before serving for that crisp finish with some celery and ranch.

Alright, there you have it, the best ways to feast on some PERFECT wings. Or maybe, you want to try the Hot AF challenge and you’ll come to Hudsons Canadas Pub for that perfect wing.
