Well Folks: It's Friday and the Super Bowl is only 2 days away. So it's time to give you my final recipes for the buffet table at your Super Bowl Party. I'm going with the classics, with my take on Buffalo Wings, and Atomic Buffalo Turds, better known as ABT'S. I will also give you my pick on who will win the game. So lets get started.
The wings are a classic, and there are many different ways to cook them, and as many different sauces you can make to coat your wings. This is my recipe and we like them a lot.
Since the name of this page is Don and his Grill. I grill my wings till crispy. Some of you may fry them or cook your wings in the oven. I think the grill adds a nice layer of flavor, any way you cook them is fine as long as you cook them till they are crispy.
I take about 5 pounds of wings and split them and remove the tips
Next, I season the wings with Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning, adding as much you like,remembering the more you use the spicier the wings.
Set the grill up for indirect cooking and start to grill the wings. I like to add a little cherry wood to add some smoke flavor to the wings. Turn the wings and cook till they are crispy. You can move the wings over the hot coals to help crisp the skin. Be careful when you do this, as the fat in the skin can cause a flare up and you can burn up the wings if you are not paying attention.
Now the sauce;
1 Cup Franks Hot sauce
1 stick butter melted
2 TBS Sweet and Hot Mustard
2 TBS A-1 Sauce
2 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
2 TBS Country Bob's Sauce
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
In a pan melt the butter, then add all the liquid ingredients,and stir to mix.
After the liquid ingredients are well mixed, add the Brown Sugar and mix over medium heat till the sugar has dissolved.
After the wings are nice and crispy put them in a large bowl with the sauce and mix well to coat.
Serve with Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing, and celery sticks.
Now for the ABT's These are sure to please anyone that likes a little kick in their appetizers.
You will need:
12 Jalapeno Peppers cut in half with seeds and veins removed
Little Smokies Sausages
Thin sliced Bacon
After preparing the Jalapeno's fill the half boats with Cream Cheese, adding a Sausage into the cheese
Next take a half strip of Bacon and wrap around the pepper and sausage securing with a toothpick.
Lightly dust with Brown Sugar.
Now on to the grill, again set up for indirect cooking,cook the peppers till the Bacon is nice and crispy.
Serve warm. These are always a hit, and if you want to remove some of the heat from the peppers, marinate them overnight in Sprite soda after removing the seeds and veins.
You can use the left over sprite soda as a spritz, to kick up your Pork Steaks or Pork Butt at your next smoke/ BBQ.
Finally, my pick for the the game. A lot of thought has went into this pick, and since my son is picking the New England Patriots. I have to take the New York Giants, just so one us will have bragging rights.
New York wins by a score of 24 to 21.
Hope some of these recipes gave you something new to try at your Super Bowl Party, and you find them worth adding to your Buffet.
Have a Great Weekend and enjoy the Game.
Next week.... RIBS
