For his birthday dinner, my son requested wings. And he specifically wanted me to cook them. Big ego boost for me, especially since I never cooked wings before.

I brined and cooked 56 wings for the group. Dusted ‘em with flour and cooked at 375. Dipping sauces were homemade teriyaki, sweet & sour, and buffalo sauces. Sides were assorted vegetables and Ranch dressing for dipping. Dessert was cupcakes.

Details and recipes later. Too many kids around for me to write ‘em out right now.

It's great that your son requested that YOU cook his wings for him. Makes the day even more special to him.

I see you caught someone's grub grabber reachin for a wing ... I think that's what happens to a lot of my food. I know it's not me doing it.

Thanks for sharing the pix of the day, food, and being outside without any ice.

Some recipes for the sauces:

Buffalo sauce was just butter and hot sauce, mixed to taste.

As for the other sauces:

Rob's Teriyaki Sauce
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1.5-2 tbsp brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 green onion, chopped
1 pinch red pepper flakes

Mix the ingredients and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Adjust spices for taste, adding sugar or other ingredients as needed for taste.

Sweet & Sour Wing Sauce
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1-2 tbsp tomato paste, to taste (or ketchup, if this is what you have)

Mix and simmer for 15-20 minutes. This sauce was *very* sweet from the pan, but on the wings it was amazing. It wasn't real thick, but a longer simmer or some flour or corn starch could help that.
