Wing Bowl 2011: And The King of Wing Gluttony Is...Brooke McLay
In the end, the competition came down to two past champions–Super Squibb of Berlin and El Wingador of Woodbury Height. Though both men choked down enough wings to bread the previous Wing Bowl record, it was Super Squibb who took home the crown after eating 254 wings.
World class eater and Wing Bowl competitor Takeru Kobyashi was impressed with the competition, as well as the feats of the winners. “I’ve never seen anything like this before. It’s WWA for me—wings, women and alcohol. I’ve been involved in eating competitions all over the world and nine of them ever demonstrated women and alcohol like this event.”
And on that note, we leave you with a recipe for Wing Bowl Winners Wings which makes a single batch of 254 wings, just enough to feed one. As for the women and booze. Well, we’ll leave that part up to you.
- 254 chicken wings
- 5 pounds of butter
- 5 (10 oz.) bottles hot sauce
- 1 cup paprika
- 1 cup cayenne pepper
- 1 cup garlic powder
- 10 quarts oil for frying
In an industrial-sized fryer, heat oil. Salt and pepper chicken wings, then immerse in the hot oil until cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, stir together the remaining ingredients in a 22 gallon stockpot. Pour cooked wings into a discarded refrigerator box lined with aluminum foil. Toss wings and sauce together using two large Scandivanian weightlifters and a John Deere tractor.
