I don't believe this - dog!!
Smokey Bones had the best wings, but they are no more.
Wingzza (Food Truck) has the best wings in Charlotte in my opinion. Always worth the chase.
moosehead is my favorite wing spot, by far
Obviously, few of the people commenting benefit from reading comprehension. The author never said she only went to 4 places in her entire time in Charlotte; she writes that she's been searching for 3 years (which to me logically translates as a couple dozen places) and went to these 4 stops in one final search.
Gotta say I was hoping for something more enlightening. I too am on the search for great wings in Charlotte and haven't found any that keep me coming back. D.D. Pecker's was a good choice, but I dunno about the others. It's certainly not comprehensive or interested enough a selection to make the call. No Moosehead wings in there? Whooli's?
Yeah, your "Mission Accomplished" echoes George W. pretty appropriately.
Two out of the 4 places sampled were chains (Yes, ECW is a chain.) It's odd that this reviewer ignored all but 1 of the highest rated (Google, Yelp, Urbanspoon) wing spots in Charlotte. If you're in a position to influence others at least do some research or have the curtesy to put "Advertisement" in a banner or fine print somewhere. Check out some locally owned spots like Flip'n Chicken, Wing King, or even Lebowski's that treat wings as the main event, rather than just as an appetizer or drink order afterthought.
I am a long time WING FAN from NJ - I found my Southern home for wings in Rock Hill SC at the KICKIN PIG ( http://thekickinpig.com/ ) This place is doing it right!
Please share the names of the Michelin-starred restaurants where you've tasted the wings. Inquiring minds want to know.
I agree that the East Cost Wing, Insanity Wing, is the hottest around and not enjoyable since all you get is burn, all around the lip area goes red if any sauce hit it and your taste buds go numb for a week. I didn't have the problem of no sleeping at all that night I ate the wing, which was just a dare that I knew I could do; I got a shot glass and T-shirt and wing free in the end.
There are many other wings in Charlotte that are hot and 'flavor balanced' and you should continue your quest.
Note to self, don't bother trying them at any of the other places on this list, since the completely unimpressive wings at Wild Wing Cafe "win" in this author's mind (some fun sauce options, sure). It is NOT hard to find vastly superior wings in Charlotte.
ditto the first comment, and sadly no description of how the wings were cooked besides at the first place. DD Peckers.
So, out of the hundred or so places in town that serve wings, you went to 4, and have the nerve to say you've found Charlotte's best wings?
What kind of cream?
I get mighty tired of Everyday Italian watching Giada shining those alligator teeth constantly too. What a phony!! As far as 30 Minute Meals go, her shows last 30 minutes, but most of those meals can't be done in less than an hour! Aaron McCargo's show does a variety of cooking recipes. That's what it's about, variety. If he did all complicated stuff you would complain about that too. He's a good man and don't knock him. He cooks things that are affordable and that most of us can relate to. I love when he brings his son on. This country has lost touch of doing things with their kids. If you don't like it, watch something else. He loves his son and it shows.
IBU's does in fact directly correlate to the amount of hops that are used in the brewing process.
It has much less to do with the actual perception of bitterness in the taste of the beer. Example: Dogfish head 120 minute IPA is rated at 120 IBU's due to 2hrs of constant hopping, yet it tastes less bitter than many lower IBU beers due to the sweetness of it's very high malt content. Flying monkey alpha fornication is rated at 2500 IBU, but we really can't taste anything higher than 100 IBU.
C'mon Cam, if your going to write about beer, know your facts.
There is no such thing as a "triple IPA"
I am anxiously awaiting the opening of Nan & Byron's !
