There's a place I can go where I can pick them out myself and I'll go 3 flats and 3 drumettes if I want to have wings and salad for lunch or something.

(The place is a Safeway.)

We lived in Nashville for four years. What is this "constant moving"?

I was joking about immediately moving out of Ohio because of the dumb thing they call the wing pieces.

We just moved to Ohio. Our closest local pub calls them "drummies" and "flappers".

In other news, we're moving out of Ohio.
How are you doing this constant moving? You must keep renting because my parents moved constantly but always bought houses and that wasn't a good financial strategy.

Oooo, I was gonna call it a stunning upset for Flats, but then someone popped in and evened the score.

This is too nerve-wracking!!

Flats: cook more evenly, not that hard to eat.

This is a lot closer than I thought! I figured drumettes would notch the clear win. But it's anybody's game!

Bone-in. Boneless "wings" are chicken nuggets, not wings.
Given that to be the case I made my choice. With my vote for Drumettes the vote is now tied 4-4.

Which is your favorite wing part?

I feel like we did this before, but whatever. SPIRIT OF KINDNESS.
Before I answer, do you mean bone-in or boneless? I've seen Buffalo wings both ways.

oops
@on all change "I've seen" to "I've eaten"

It's all about the sauce

I agree with pinback on everything he's said so far in this thread.

I voted for the flats. It's because we are elite in certain things and very much not elite in other things.

Oh, absolutely. We're all big fans of both pieces. If I was served a plate with ONLY flats, I'd be disappointed.

But if I was served a plate with only drumettes, I think I would be more disappointed.

Great question. It was right of you to bring this here.

Ben, I want to extend an olive branch. While not Rochester-Buffalo-born, we officially accept you as one of us. Superman wasn't born on Earth, but everyone still considers him an American. Can we come to an agreement on this? Please? I know that it infuriates you that the place many of us grew up have this weird "ownership" of a food that is now everywhere in the country. I want you to have it as well. I want us to be a team here.

So. Drumettes versus flats. I love them both, of course. I got groceries today and there is a chicken wing bar in the deli section of the Safeway I frequent. Someone had picked all the drumettes out, leaving only flats. I didn't mind. I put three flats in a bag and ate them for part of a small lunch when I got home. They could be flats all the time and that would be fine with me.

Do I prefer drumettes? Well..... maybe? But I mean, I guess what I like best is a 50/50 mix. How I also like my races.

I know people that refuse to eat chicken wings because they consider the wings to be trash parts, the parts you discard when you buy a chicken. I think it's an old thing.
Wait. I thought you keep the wings and the legs, and throw away everything else.

Well, I don't know what to say to that.

Re: Flats or Drumettes?

My mom, for one. All the times we went out for beers and pub food, no wings. Not once, ever.

I don't believe you know people who refuse to eat wings because they are trash parts.

Put 'em on.
