Well, I got some good news and I got some bad news.


One of them is, I ain't going this year.

The other is, I'm almost certainly going in 2021.


Which one of the two is the good news, I leave up to your individual opinion.

General question - how many pounds of chicken wings do you think you'd eat if you didn't have your partner saying, "you've had too many already?"

The return question is:  what other stuff are you eating with them?

Typical food portions is 4-6 oz per person  - so even if you doubled that..  still less than 1.

Wings.
Beer.

What the hell else would you eat with em?

2 lbs - 3 lbs depending on the flavors.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

I can usually put down 10-15 depending on the size.  So I would say 1 1/2 #s for me.  The only time I talk ounces is steak and beer.  Neither one usually goes as low as 4-6 ounces.  Even filet mignon.

So about 6oz of meat per person on average?  :P
I'm nobody.  But I'll be at Zapcon hanging out with the likes of Arroyo and MikeA.

So just over one pound for an appetizer and double that for a full order of a dozen wings (this weight includes the bones).

Quote:
“You’ll need approximately 6 whole wings (or 1.125 lbs) in order to reach a 6 oz serving of actual chicken meat per person (with an “average” appetite). According to the USDA, an average uncooked whole chicken wing weighs 102 grams (or 3.5 ounces).

So how many chicken wings in a pound? That would mean there are approximately 4 to 5 chicken wings in a pound. That would mean there are approximately 40 to 50 chicken wings in a 10 pound (lb) bag. 10 lbs of chicken wings feeds approximately 9 people ...
Just to be clear…we’re talking appetizers; not a meal.”

A pound sounds like what I'd eat with other stuff. Left on my own in a room full of wings, probably 2 pounds.

So, I made a field trip this morning to do some research.

What you see here is one 40lb case of jumbo chicken wings, and a 30lb case of jumbo turkey wings they cut at the joints and bagged for me.



The 40lb case was divided into 10lb bags.  The count actually varied by a lot per bag - 26, 30.5, 21, and 22 whole wings.



The turkey wings varied in size but all drumettes were at least chicken drumstick in meat yield and many approached your ordinary thanksgiving turkey leg.  20 whole wings in that.

So, basically, 70lbs of turkey and chicken wings yielded 40 turkey party wings, and 199 chicken party wings.  Each turkey wing is ~1.5lbs, and it was 4.975 chicken wings to a pound.

I actually kind of prefer jumbo turkey wings but they aren't easily found.  You can, with determination, actually get a bite or two out of the tips.

My hands are numb and my freezer is full.  Based on this research, assuming a dozen jumbo party wings per person and 10 people at the house, I think we’re going to need 150lbs of chicken.   :lol. Haha, nah, probably about 30.

 :cheers:

Found that 0.5 chicken wing in my garbage disposal this morning.  Oops.

Anyway, here’s what they look like cooked.  Maybe we start leaning on yotsuya to source turkey wings in Phoenix..




Jumbo chicken wing at bottom, large turkey wing top left, jumbo turkey wing top right.
