Do You Use Whole Wings or Split?

This is up to you. Split wings (split into drums and flats) will cook at a more even temperature. This is also better for even browning of the skin.

The wing is is made up of 3 parts: the drumette, the wingette, and the wing tip. The drumette looks like a small drumstick and usually has more meat. It’s mostly dark meat, is slightly juicier than the wingette.

The wingette is often called the flat, is the middle section that is made of two bones running horizontally through the middle of it with meat in the middle. Because it’s thinner, this part normally crisps up easier when cooking them with the thicker drumette portions.

The wing tip doesn’t have much flavor, but you can save it if you plan to make homemade broth.

You can separate the wings yourself by cutting at the elbow joint to separate the drum from the wingette. From there you can remove the wing tip to display a flat if you wish.
