Kluckr alert for those who love wings
Just in time for Saturday's big game, Jack has sent me the Web address of a popular wing Web site called Kluckr. (I wonder if there's a site devoted to every food in the universe. I should check sometime.)
Anyway, Jack seems to be a wing connoisseur, and he endorses Kluckr, saying he agrees with the top two choices in the Baltimore section.
You may want to put in your two cents about that.
The places are rated by heat, variety, service, atmosphere and value. ...
That got me to thinking about what makes some wings better than others -- something that, believe me, has never occurred to me to give a second thought to before. I just eat and enjoy them if they're in front of me. And I'm in no way an expert. I still call them Buffalo wings.
Here's what I decided a connoisseur would come up with in order of importance. Correct me if I'm wrong:
1) plumpness or meatiness
2) flavor of seasoning or sauce
3) the proper amount of heat
4) crisp, chilled celery
5) good, cold blue cheese dressing
Or are wings no longer served with celery and blue cheese dressing?
