Insert wing lengthwise into maw. Close teeth and lips. Pull bones out, leaving meaty goodness behind.

Bonus -- this method leaves only two fingers messy.

Yeah, this is visually impressive but I don't really have any problem eating flat wings the "gnaw around" way. Just press out on the meat between the two bones a little bit with your tongue as you're eating the rest, then grab it with your teeth and you're golden.

And with that comment, I formally abandon my hopes of one day going out with Natalie Portman.

The best way to eat a chicken wing, courtesy of The Token Vegetarian:

Actually, this is more or less how SE Asians eat chicken feet. Put cooked food in mouth, mash with palate, spit out half a dozen tiny bones, ingest. It was a bit of an eye opener to me the first time I saw an impeccably dressed, refined, and beautiful Javanese woman doing this, but then it seemed tame to me after I saw them eating fish heads. Yum.

I remember loving chicken feet when I was a kid. Also, fish eyeballs. Fish fins. Chicken brains.

Don't really enjoy any of the above anymore, though the last one is only because it's hard to find chicken with the heads intact around here.

I do still enjoy the little bit of congealed blood or whatever it is under a chicken thigh. (Anybody know what exactly that is?) Mmm chicken thigh.

What do you call the different parts of wings?

The ones with just one bone, I think I've heard them called drummies?

And the tiny little ones, are these 'tips'? (I don't think I've ever seen these served by themselves, only when the wing is served whole.)

So what do you call the whole wing? You know the one with all three pieces.

And what do you call the two-bone wings that are in this video?

Is there a generic name that refers to all three separate parts of the wing? The legs of the wing? The joints of the wing?

I'm curious, just not curious enough to waste an Ask Me on this.

Anyway, I thought that was a neat way of eating a 2-boner.

Wait, that sounded dirty, didn't it? See? That's why it's so crucial that we give these things a proper name.

I hate to be a buzzkill, but I could have eaten 6 chicken wings in the time he spent deboning that one. Even if he were slowing it down 50% for the video, I'd still have a massive lead on him. You have a tongue for a reason, people! Use it to separate the meat between the bones!

And yes, it is true that you should savor your food rather than going for speed. However, I prefer the underlying eating techniques to be fast so that I can optimize tasting times. If I spend too much time fiddling with a chicken wing at a party, chances are they will all be gone by the time I'm ready to savor the next one.

Also, HI I'M ON METAFILTER AND I CAN OVERTHINK A PLATE OF WINGS!

Gnawing meat off the bone is one of those things which I have never appreciated. 1) I have a beard and often a very long moustache. 2) It just seems to retro-caveman to me. Isn't this what we invented utensils for?

I've long been mocked by my family and others for doing things like standing a drumstick on end and running a knife down it to strip it of meat, and then eating that with a knife and fork.

This, however, seems to eliminate the parts of wing eating which I hate, and still leaves the food part pretty much intact. I may actually try it sometime. You know, when I'm out someplace. Because I never cook meat on the bone at home.

[disclaimer -- I do cook beef ribs several times a summer, and usually hate the process of eating them even as I am nomnomnoming the wonderful beef rib flavor. Off the bone. *shudder*]

posted by darksasami at 2:53 PM on October 30, 2009


This is far too civilized for wings.

To eat a chicken wing, place one tip on your plate while holding it upright by the other end with two fingers and a thumb. Then, mash your two fingers and thumbs downwards towards the plate ripping all that delicious wing meat off the bone as messily as possible. Shove wing meat down gullet. Repeat until plate is finished.

If your hands and face are not covered in bits of torn chicken and large smears of hot sauce by the time you finish your plate, you're doing it wrong. Roaring like a viking after every chicken wing is also encouraged.

I think drumette is the usual term. I'm sure there's variants.

I've usually heard the two-bone part called the "flapper". But it seems some people call that part the "flat" and the tips "flappers".

Wait, you're supposed to put the whole foot in your mouth? I had one or two chicken feet while I was in China, but I was a much more tentative, bite off each finger and de-meat that kind of eater.

The tips are the part that come on the end of the wing. They're small, boney, and have almost no meat. Most cooks throw them away or save them for stock. They come with packaged wings at the supermarket, though, so some homecooks prepare them, although you cannot make a good appetizer from them. The best you can do is suck on them to get the seasonings and a bit of chicken fat out. I think they're just packaged to bulk up the weight so consumers pay more.

As for the other parts, I don't know.

I was at a burger place over the summer and there was a dude sitting by himself at a table eating a large bowl of wings. He used the above method and didn't move or even twitch his face a little bit while he was eating. He would just pick up a wing, put it in his mouth, hold it there for a few seconds without his mouth or jaw evidencing the tiniest bit of movement, and without the slightest movement of any other part of his body, then take out a completely stripped bone and set it on the table, repeating the process like 25 times. He freaked me the fuck out, eating like he was some kind of chicken wing sarlacc pit.

I like to use a similar technique to eat chicken thighs. Twist/Pull the littel bone, leaving the large bone remaining on the side. I am left with a nearly unobstructed meat cookie that I can bite straight through.

I hadn't thought of this with the wings though.

I only eat boneless "chicken wings". They can be eaten with a fork. And they're less likely to be covered in icky Buffalo sauce.

The funny part to me was when he deboned that wing part and then called it "100% meat". More like 50% meat/50% skin and fat. Just sayin'.

(And I look forward to trying this method. I also enjoy watching how individuals eat hardshell blue crabs. Some of you really have NO CLUE what you're supposed to be doing. Maybe there's a video for that.)

2. In one smooth action, use extreme meatsuck power plus some kinky tounguework to extract meat.
3. Pull out clean bone.

Didn't anyone else find the concept of eating the knobby cartilage part gross? Part of the reason I like pulling my wings apart is that there are parts other than the bone that I don't like to eat. I don't trust that his method isn't gonna leave hunks of cartilage in there, particularly given his repeated assertion that he loves the stuff.

That's the kidneys. They are indeed delicious.

Also, the knobby cartilage part isn't gross, it's yummy, as is the spongy bone at the end of the leg; and of course the marrow of a well-seasoned chicken is ambrosia, once you've cracked the bone shaft open with your teeth. One thing about coming from a traditional Mexican family -- you really learn how to eat a chicken. (Though I never got to try the feet. As matriarch, my great-grandmother always claimed the "best part" for herself.)

Oooh, the end bit of the wing (or as I think of it, the wingtip). Delicious if cooked through correctly. There used to be a takeaway place near me when I was younger that had amazing BBQ roast chicken; the tips of the wing would be cooked so crispy that everything save the largest bone in that part of the chicken - and sometimes even that - was edible with a small amount of crunching. And it was delicious. My favorite part. Lots of people think that's gross, but I find that these tend to be the kinds of people who enjoy the parson's nose, so different horses for different courses, I say.

Also, I love Chef John. His website always has more information than the youtube videos. I made these wings for the Super Bowl last year and they were quite delicious.

you can also just hold the wing upright on the tip of the bone, and pull down between your thumb and index finger. pulls all the meat of and leaves bone. i personally hate having to involve more than one hand in the process of eating wings but sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

No, but depending on how the butcher cuts the bird up, the part that gets sold as a thigh can include some of the back meat too, and even a little bit of the backbone. When that happens, you often get a tasty little kidney clinging in next to the backbone. It's like winning the chicken dismemberment lottery.

posted by Smedleyman at 11:41 PM on October 30, 2009


I've always found it weird how some people have a hard time eating chicken wings. Having said that, the method in that video looks too fussy to me. I don't have time to play around with my wing like before I eat it. Taking apart *is* key to good wing eating, and I guess if you did it enough you'd get fast at it, but the hands are just way too involved in this. And you can't get as much access to meat for optimal clean bonedness. This method isn't friendly to those who find cartilage gross, but look, here's what I do for maximum wings hoovering and leaving only a clean pile of bones: Just put one end in your mouth, use your front chopper teeth to bite between those two bones that the guy in the video so laboriously took apart by removing the cartilage first and twisting, and then rotating slightly to the left at the same time, while tilting at a 45 degree angle and sneezing. Oh, look, now all you have to do just pull the two apart easily and stick each piece in your mouth and scrape the meat off like a Warner Bros. character putting a turkey drumstick in his mouth and just pulling out the bone. Come on, dude in the video, eating wings should not be like taking apart an erector set.

So I tried it last night. It's far more difficult than it looks. Perhaps it's because I was working with deep fried wings slathered with buttery, vinegary hot sauce, but breaking off the cartilege was a slippery ordeal, and the twisting of the bones made the delicious crispy batter break apart and crumble.

posted by smackfu at 11:20 AM on October 31, 2009


This guy is almost right. The way to eat a chicken wing is to hold it opposite the way he did, skin side down, slide index fingers between bones, seperating and removing small bone along with cartilaginous nubbin, eat meat-draped larger bone clean in one bite. Finish by chugging a pint of ranch dressing, screaming, "Yankees suck!" and passing out facedown in the celery.
