  • Remove wings and/or drummies from packaging, placing them in the colander
  • Rinse them in a sink and allow to air dry 5 to 10 minutes

Step 2

  • Preheat Fry Daddy or personal  fryer to 350 degrees F
  • Place wings into fry basket and fry until done. 

*  Floating wings is a good sign they are close.

  • Wings are fully cooked once they reach 170 degrees F.  You test this by inserting a cooking thermometer into the thickest part of a drumstick.
  • Once done remove the fry basket and suspend over the fryer for several minutes to allow excess grease to drain.
  • Using clean tongs place cooked wings in a large mixing bowl.

Step 3

  • Add your favorite wing sauce to the bowl.
  • Using tongs mix the wings and sauce until coated.
  • Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce and celery sticks.

How to Create

Legendary Ribs AT HOME


Start With The Right Product

At Texas Roadhouse, they use only American-grown product--USDA #1 inspected fresh domestic Pork Loin Back Ribs.  Starting with the right product will give you a Legendary result. We will show you how to make the best ribs possible with the equipment available in an average home kitchen. Just remember that most home kitchens do not have the equipment they have in their restaurant, and the product may differ some from their fall-off-the-bone ribs.


STEP ONE:        Seasoning,

·         In a deep baking pan, add water and some type of Liquid Smoke.

·         Mix well. 

·         Take Ribs, use a shaker and your favorite dry seasoning (we have our seasoning for sale online at and thoroughly coat each of the Ribs.

·         Place Ribs in the pan.


STEP TWO:       Cooking

·         Place pans in 350° F oven and bake slowly until done; about 3 hours.

·         Ribs are fully cooked when the bone in the center pulls freely from the meat.  At this point, remove from the oven. 


STEP THREE:    Grilling

·         Pick your favorite BBQ sauce for re-heating and basting the Ribs.

·         Pre-heat grill.

·         Brush and season the grill before use.

·         Place the Rack of Ribs vertically, with the underside down to the grates. 

·         Heat until sizzling hot. 

·         Turn Ribs over and baste the underside of the Ribs, and heat until sizzling hot.   

·         Baste the top. 

·         Turn the Ribs over one last time and baste with a final coat.

·         Serve to your guests and accept their compliments graciously!!!
