Fun facts about National Chicken Wing Day
You take great pride in your outdoor cooking skills. We suspect you’re also quite proud of your vast knowledge of, well, everything. Use these tidbits to wow the crowd next time you cook.
1. You want carrots and celery with that?
Patrick “Deep Dish” Bertoletti won the 2015 Wing Bowl by inhaling 444 chicken wings in 26 minutes. Molly Schuyler was hot (wings) on his heels with 440 downed.
2. You wanted chicken necks?
Teressa Bellissimo got the order wrong back in 1964 for a joint in Buffalo, N.Y., called Anchor Bar. She meant to get chicken necks, which her husband used to make his famous spaghetti sauce. Waste not, want not, right? So he tried something different, and the rest was history.
3. Do you want a super BOWL for those?
On Super Bowl Sunday, Americans step it up to eat 1.25 billion chicken wings. On gameday. (Not even including the Pro Bowl.) End to delicious end, that could ring the Grand Canyon 120 times.
