Well, this isn’t so much of a recipe but more of a food tradition in my family.
Deep Fried Chicken
We love to sit outside and fry up a batch of chicken wings, gizzards and hearts.
Pops started this tradition a long time ago and is the master of the fry station.
We like to use a simple flour/Drakes fry mix combination.
Roll the chicken in the mix and drop into a hot fryer.
For the wings, I will also make two or three different sauces to accompany them.
The standard buffalo sauce, honey BBQ, straight BBQ and Caribbean Jerk.
We love to sit out by the campfire and cook and eat. Tossing the bones right into the flames afterwards.
I love the tradition of this and how it continues. It would be fun to be part of it I think.ReplyDelete
Hi Betty, don't you think Bushman needs to host the next blog party… those wings look soooo yummy.Delete
hehehehe blog party… makes me think of block parties. When I was a kid my neighbourhood had them.
The best thing is all the mess is outside and the house doesn't smell like fried chicken for a week.Delete
It's all about making memories… you've got lots with this tradition.ReplyDelete
I'm drooling now. It's too late to eat - damn, I should have waited until my tomorrow (still 10:47pm Friday) when my stomach wasn't growling.
As always, you rocked another letter - great D post.

This was an easy one. I look forward to a few more summer wing parties around the campfire.Delete
Hey Jeff - stopping by after your visit to the Hearth.ReplyDelete
I am so jealous of the fire pit shown in your last picture - I would give anything to have one like that in mine, only problem is it would most likely swallow the garden ours is that small.
Sounds like you have the outdoors man's life down to a tee. In many ways I envy that, and in many ways I'm not ;)
Anything that can be done inside can be done outside and many times with more fun and enthusiasm. I always feel better when I'm outside anyways.Delete
Thanks for the visit!
There is something so soothing about sitting around the fire pit, chicken or no chicken.ReplyDelete

There certainly is Wendy!Delete
Chicken chicken and more chicken, how about those moose steaks,salmon,halibut,scallops,etc,etc. Yes outdoor cooking is the best and we always make the best of it. Can't wait till Aug. Beautiful post yesterday, always in my heart and mind. Love to allReplyDelete
In a few months, it will be walleye fillets by the fire!Delete
Love the sound of that Caribbean Jerk Sauce and yes, deep friend chicken - even if it's not good for me.ReplyDelete
It is really good J.L. In fact it is my new favorite.Delete
Our version of outdoor cooking is Hungarian campfire smores: Bacon, onions, and white bread :DReplyDelete

I will look that up and give it a try. Sounds good.Delete
That looks fun and tasty.ReplyDelete
It is fun and tasty for sure Ruth.Delete
Sometimes there is even a stray beer floating around!
I can just imagine how great it must smell around those campfires. I love fried chicken but unfortunately I cannot eat it any long. Enjoy for me the next time you fry some up!ReplyDelete
I will do just that Barb!Delete
It sounds and looks awesome, Bushman, except the chicken hearts. You eat their hearts? Well, I guess it all tastes like chicken, so it's all good.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting.
Have a great Easter weekend.
Yes, we do! They are yummy little morsels!Delete
Doesn't everything taste like chicken? LOL
Sounds great Jeff. If I ever go to Charlotte, can I come and grub with you guys?ReplyDelete
Of course, you can! We even make french fries by the fire too!Delete
Around a campfire would be a great place to eat them.ReplyDelete
And do you live in Charlotte? We're not that far apart.
Where abouts are you Alex?Delete
The fire pit makes a great bone collector as long as they get burned up. If not I find the dogs rooting around in the ashes the next morning looking for treats!
That looks like a great way to spend time with friends and family... I love fried chicken... :)ReplyDelete
It most assuredly is Rajlakshmi. We have a lot of campfires n the summer time. Just us and the outdoors.Delete
Chicken FRIED is my favorite way to eat it and cooking wings like this looks fabulous.ReplyDelete
I know deep fried isn't the healthiest way to eat so we limit it to a few occasions each summer. We usually have a hot dog roast and smores as well.Delete
Yeah, this isn't the healthiest, but it sure is damn good. We like to do the same... minus the Caribbean Jerk. I need to learn a good Caribbean Jerk sauce recipe. That sounds fantastic.ReplyDelete
