Restaurant Style: North Jersey’s Best Wings
Editor’s Note: Smokey’s Chef Joe has his own special recipe that is somewhat similar to the recipe found below.
When I asked him to share his recipe for North Jersey’s Best Wings, however, he was reluctant, saying that
it was a proprietary secret. He did admit that the wings were first smoked in our house smoker, then deep-fried, then served dry with your favorite sauce. So, the best that I could do was to provide a reasonable facsimile . . .
- In a small bowl mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt. Place chicken wings in a large nonporous glass dish or bowl and sprinkle flour mixture over them until they are evenly coated. Cover dish or bowl and refrigerate for 60 to 90 minutes.
