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.

    • I say don't keep any gas in anything that is going to sit. Any problems with fuel are water problems not the alcohol. You take out the alcohol in Minnesota in winter you get frozen fuel lines. This was common in winter for decades until ethanol was added but they used isopropyl rather than ethyl alcohol. In fact many of the " remedies" are just other forms of alcohol. If you get so much water in the fuel that the alcohol gets saturated and phases out then you have a contamination issue and the problems won't be solved by  removing the alcohol. You will just have more unbound water sitting at the bottom of your tank building sludge.   Lots of the problems with small engines are derived from the chemicals that come up with the crude in the well. Companies blend this into the fuel rather than pay to dispose of it and that is what gunk's up the fuel system. Gumout was invented long before ethanol and carb cleaner was a regular maintenance procedure needed because of those chemicals mucking up the fuel system. Alcohol is a very good solvent and it does a good job of cleaning up deposits left from those chemicals but as a consequence of that cleaning action you will get clogged Jets and such periodically. But in that case alcohol is the good guy that is cleaning up the dump left behind by the fuel. 
    • I tell people all the time do not use ethanol at all in equipment your store for extended times. I often hear but, but I use it in my car all the time. I respond do you drive your car often? Yes they say. I tell them then your fuel did not have time to become water saturated. There is good reason wise car collectors store their prized classics with non-ethanol fuel only.
    • Bacterial growth in carb bowl filled with water & ethanol. The ethanol component of the fuel becomes saturated with water and settles to bottom of fuel tank. Over time it goes down fuel line by gravity into carb bowl as fuel evaporates out. The water saturated ethanol separates from gasoline as it is heavier.
    • Here is some of the jelly from water being absorbed by ethanol and then bacteria acting on it. Luckily I caught this early before it caused more corrosion. Will post pic of rag with "jelly" (bacterial slime) I pulled out of this carb bowl. Stihl also has some wonderful pics & warnings of damage done by ethanol you can google.
    • Oxidizers were federally mandated in 1997. Politicians took big contributions from the ethanol industry which is set up to benefit ethanol manufacturers and big operations. It has in fact hastened the demise of small and medium farms and the rural communities that depended on them. The farm belt has suffered greatly as a result of regulations passed that benefit the big operations. Small & medium farmers cannot compete with growing ag corporations who can buy seed with big discounts, often exploit illegal workers and can ship product cheaper. Corn had it's short 10 year or so boon after 1997. But that went bust as more marginal land was tilled under & overproduction was achieved to the benefit of ethanol producers. Many farms are still going bust or selling out to the big corporations. 75% of the land in production is owned by big corporate farms. 30 years ago you could flip that number around. So what has this gov't subsidy done for most farmers? Put them out of business!
    • Sorry if I came across as a bit abrasive.  Some of us can get a little surly around here and sometimes we forget we aren't talking to one of the other surly long-timers.   I get what you're saying about a more hunting specific truck with some specific bells and whistles designed with hunters in mind.  I do think the best way to get a truck like that would be to find the base model truck you like for all of the normal stuff trucks come with and then look for some sort of after market option.  There has to be a pro or 2 out there that can take on such a project if you aren't up for tackling it yourself.  I'd be a bit nervous cutting into a new truck as well so would look to hire it out as well.   A couple things that I'd like.  A winch in the bed like you mentioned.  Could be used for loading deer, portable ice houses, or other large loads when you don't have another guy to help. Some sort of instant heat or maybe an app that could start your car from the stand. Maybe some sort of gun safe type lock box behind the seats or in the floor so that if you can keep your rifle or shotgun cased and locked up.  It could be useful for times you may want to sneak out for a hunt after work and you want a better way to secure your firearm when at work.
    • Just a seasoning packet. Adjust the recipe as you see fit. A late summer batch with fresh sweet corn off of the cob works pretty well.     
    • I have a nice truck, but.... For 1 week a year there are things that I would like to change/add. Keyless start would go with keyless entry, like the new ranger boat, punch in your number and go. I can not turn off my lights on my gmc sierra. I install 12v electronics professionally but I wouldn't feel as comfortable cutting into wiring harnesses to add switches as I am tearing all wiring from a boat and doing it from scratch. I'm not trying to hide from the animals, I don't want people to know where my hunting spots are and chrome sticks out bad. I go farther and climb higher and sit longer than 95% of fellow hunters which is why I average 6.3 deer/year (legally) but people who know of my success will seek out my parking spot and return thinking that its the only good spot to hunt. Anyways... I was just trying to open up a friendly conversation about a perfect hunting rig to get people out of the political talk that HSO seems to be about. My best stand is walking distance from my house so all I need a truck for is to retrieve my bucks. Was hoping for something besides abrasive comments and criticism that seems to follow most of my posts. I'm sorry I will quietly read and keep my fingers away from the keyboard. I made it into the ALL TIME RECORD BOOK with a 172" typical public land giant when I drove a 2000 Chev Malibu 24k gold edition anyway. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful time. 
    • Check your throttle position sensor voltage. KOEO you should see .8 to 1.0 volts with the throttle closed.  
    • Spring officially arrived March 20 with the vernal equinox and temperatures leading into it were very spring like, bringing a close to much of the outdoor winter recreation across the state. Snowmobile trails now remain open in only a handful of northern counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR) and more are expected to close with warm weather this week. Many state parks and forests have discontinued ski trail grooming, so even if a spring snowstorm arrives most trails will not be groomed. Most mountain bike and horse trails are closed and will remain closed until they dry out. There is still up to 2 feet or more of snow in some northern counties, making it a great time to get out and explore on snowshoes, which are a must for trekking out in the woods.Flood waters were rampant last week in some areas of southern Wisconsin but many went down over the weekend. As of March 20, the Trempealeau River had dropped to minor flood stage and the Crawfish, Rock, Fox and Manitowoc rivers were expected to remain in moderate flood stage through next week. .
