I was finishing up filling my freezer for the winter, when I spied a pkg of chicken wings from May.....the last one. Hmmm...the old Weber charcoaler looked kinda lonely sitting next to the other grills, so.... Hot wings snack time! I had a bottle of Frank's Hot Wings sauce, which I don't really like, nor do I like any of the other "wing"sauces....short on flavor and big on just heat, the one's I've tried, anyway. So, I whipped up this, and it IS GOOD! To me, anyway!  :P Sprinkled the wings with my rub, got the coals ashed over, and away we went!  

 

Wing Sauce

(no exact measurements)

4 parts wing sauce (Franks)

1 part Heinz 57

1 part cocktail or chili sauce

1 part teriyaki glaze

1 part Baby Ray's Sweet 'n Spicy

 

Mix well in bowl to dunk wings in.

 

Dippin' sauce

1 part good sour cream

2 parts thick Roka Blu cheese dressing

pinch of salt

pinch of garlic

snipped chives

Mix well; chill.

Atta boy rebel,  finger food at it's finest. I'm not sure I've heard of that brand of sour cream.. gotta hand it to ya for coming up with your own sauces. 

There's some good and some not-so-good sour cream out there IMO. Personally, I prefer Kemps. The Daisy brand I find is always watery or too thin;, and does not hold together well. Also some generic brands are like that, too. But, one of the thickest ones I like is Kwik-trip's brand sour cream, it's almost too thick. Wings are all gone.  Just some sauce left on my face. Wondering what do I do now. :crazy: :lol:

That's good to know rebel with the differences of sour cr. I'm kind of fond of top the tater, seems to go with everything. As far as the sauce left on your chin , the dog is always there for you.:P

My pooch used to sit right alongside of me and eat bbqs, wings, peppers, onions, everything...except oysters. He was great at catching grapes tossed into the air and green peas flipped in the air off the end of a spoon handle. :lol:

No one is representing the vegans on HSO....lol... .so thought I would give all one of them a shout out. Actually working on some new menu items for friends that own a bistro. Both these can be made ahead of time and quickly reheated or dished up. Am finally figuring out falafel.......honestly, not much better on a late night bender. These are served with fresh pita and home roasted and processed tahini sauce. Also, having a blast  coming up with garden hummus. Fava/Lima blend, roasted carrot, green pea, an old heirloom shell bean I grow, and roasted beet.

For those who have too much zucchini...

Zucchini Fritters

Published August 6, 2007.

Makes 12 fritters, serving 4 to 6

Be sure to squeeze the zucchini until it is completely dry, or the fritters will fall apart in the skillet. Don’t let the squeeze-dried zucchini sit on its own for too long or it will brown. These fritters are great warm or at room temperature, and can be served as a side dish or as a meze with cocktails. Serve with Tzatziki Sauce (see related recipe) or plain with lemon wedges. This recipe is from The Best International Recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound zucchini (about 2 medium), trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 2 cups)
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 medium garlic clove, minced or pressed through a garlic press (about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges (for serving)

Instructions

 

1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 200 degrees. Following the illustration below, shred the zucchini on the large holes of a box grater or in a food processor fitted with the shredding disk. Toss the shredded zucchini with the salt and let it drain in a fine-mesh strainer set over a bowl for 10 minutes. Wrap the zucchini in paper towels and squeeze out the excess liquid.

2. Combine the dried zucchini, feta, scallions, dill, eggs, garlic, and pepper together in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir until uniformly incorporated.

3. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Drop 2-tablespoon-sized portions of the batter into the pan, then use the back of a spoon to press the batter into 2-inch-wide fritters (you should fit about 6 fritters in the pan at a time). Fry until golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

4. Transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm. Wipe the skillet clean with paper towels. Return the skillet to medium-high heat, add the remaining 3 tablespoons oil, and repeat with the remaining batter. Serve warm or at room temperature with the lemon wedges.

 Bistro.....wine bar type thingy. A grease hood is out of the question in the old tall building and has limited quick on demand cooking equipment. Interesting on the fritter. Want to incorporate that in....would be a great cheap ingredient in a farm to table type offering......but have tried a few times and they sucked.....always to mushy and/or took too much time to cook. Never salt sweated it out first though......that might be the ticket.

    • Did you have any problem with the cutoff end of the skis? Unprotected wood getting wet? 
    • sure looks nice.  I glued some cut offs to my scout last year. really like it so far. 
    • Brackets mounted to the skis are countersunk for a 1/4-20 flat head cap screw. The turning assembly is just a 5/8" bolt. I found some PVC flanges at the local hardwae store that had a nice slip fit over the bolt. I have one in the cross board and one in the plywood with a washer in between. I can take more photos to show the detail.
    • Nice build! Are you using a simple caster as the turning assembly? How do you mount the skiis? I've drilled up from the bottom but have always wondered if there is a mounting style with less drag
    • Grainbelt, I like the ginger in soy in that recipe. Great addition to venison in my opinion. Just curious, why do you add liquid smoke if you're dehydrating in the smoker? 
    • Bummer, should have noted the digital temp controller I used on my furnace/fan set up. These things are awsome for running fans based on heat. Link to one of many sellers. You can set on/off temps anyware from -50 to +250.   https://www.hsolist.com/itm/NEW-12V-24V-110V-220V-STC-1000-Digital-Temperature-Controller-Thermostat-w-NTC/153062796516?_trkparms=aid=555018&algo=PL.SIM&ao=2&asc=20160908110712&meid=f3c697819e004dacbbe13f5cc5040666&pid=100677&rk=2&rkt=30&sd=362433159234&itm=153062796516&_trksid=p2385738.c100677.m4598&redirect=mobile Pic of mine mounted and small probe sensor (silver thing attached to black wire). Price went up a bit, i only paid $4.96 with free shipping 4 years ago. Been thinking about attaching the probe to my underwater camera with 100 ft of wire & measure water temps.
    • If you go to the grocery store the good bottled water is over a dollar a bottle and one aisle over you can get a gallon jug for 59 cents.    Some things just work out that way lol
    • I used .118 and doubled it up making the top piece to fit on the outside of the hole cover and the bottom to fit on the inside. I riveted the two together with 6 rivets. I then cut a 1/4" slot from the outside to the center and finished up by drilling a handful of 3/4" holes. Don't have any pictures of them right now.  Here is the lexan   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CAWRVJO/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    • I used the 10 pound tank for a long time when I had the pop up. didn't care for it in the clam scout. Do you guys drive cars? A lot of people die in them every year... dump happens. Be safe if you refill. don't have any flame in area and refill the correct way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD1CmorB_qM
    • yea but i've seen you fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😩😜 i've never had issues with hose melting or found it to be inconvenient, but to each there own. i have concidered an 11 lb tank!
