What can I say? They're a top ten food in my book and I'm always looking for the best of the best, especially if the recommendations are coming from long-time New Jersey residents!

The other week, I told you about supposedly the best wings in Jersey according to "experts".

I'm not saying the experts don't know what they're talking about, but I also don't consider people who don't actually live in New Jersey experts about our food.

I mean, there are a lot of options especially if it's wings we're talking about.

Before we get to what you voted in as the best wings around, let's cover some basics.

What Makes A Good Chicken Wing?

In my opinion, there are a few parameters when it comes to wings; grilled or smoked is better than fried nine times out of ten.

If the wings are smoked, then they should have that nice smokey flavor and fall off the bone.

Flats are better than drums, so there should always be more flats, and the best wings come from a hole-in-the-wall tavern, not a big chain.

But wait, there's more!

What are your thoughts on sauce?

Personally, I always do sauce on the side so I can dip the wing.

If you're doing sauce on the wing that's fine, but if the place you're eating doesn't give you some wet naps then they don't care about their customers.

That's at least what my dad always says!

The wings should also come with a side of celery or carrots or both and you'll also need some bleu cheese. Ranch works too!
