Cooked up another batch yesterday. Cap, I tried your "use the point of the knife to seperate joints" method but had absolutely no patience for it. Cleaver came out.
Anyway, since it was Ravens vs. Steelers, I was morally obligated to make Old Bay wings. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and metric buttloads of Old Bay. Tried to find Natty Boh, but there's apparently not a drop to be had in NJ.
Good, though. I'm sold on deep frying, and getting better at it.
