Cooking instruction summary:

Special equipment: a smoker; hickory wood chips or logs Rinse the chicken wings in cold water, then drain and set aside. In a large, lidded storage container whisk together 2 cups hot tap water, the salt and sugar. Add the beer, Worcestershire, peppercorns and 2 cups cold tap water. Whisk the brine briefly to mix the flavorings together. Add the wings to the brine, adding more cold water if needed to cover. Put the lid on and store them in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours. Rinse the wings thoroughly in cold water to remove any clinging peppercorns. Lay the rinsed wings on a rack to be placed in a smoker. If using hickory chips, soak in water for 30 minutes prior to use. If using logs, use dry logs. Preheat the smoker to 225 degrees F. Hot smoke the wings for 1 hour 30 minutes. After smoking you can throw them immediately into frying oil or store for later use. Pour the oil in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan. Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 350 degrees F. Place 6 to 8 smoked wings in at a time and cook for about 4 minutes (if you want a crispier skin, fry longer). Be careful when removing the wings, as they are extremely hot. Place the hot wings in a heat resistant bowl and toss with some Jerk Seasoning. Place the jerked wings on a plate with four celery sticks and a couple ounces of the Blue Cheese Dressing to serve. Repeat for the remaining wings. In a bowl combine the garlic powder, cayenne, black pepper, salt, brown sugar, granulated sugar, thyme, allspice, chili powder, cinnamon and cloves. Mix thoroughly and store in a shaker for easy use. If not using immediately, store in an airtight container at room temperature. Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, onions, beer, vinegar, pepper, salt, blue cheese and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until mixed, about six 2-second pulses.

Food Joke

I had just finished visiting a friend in the hospital and stopped by a burger drive-through for lunch to eat on the way back to work. I ordered the #1 combo for $4.29. She said "that'll be $4.83, please drive forward." "$4.83? For a $4.29 meal? That's 54 cents tax!? That can't be right," my mind raced. Tax is 8 cents on the dollar in Huntsville, Alabama and for 4 dollars that would be 32 cents plus 1/3 of 8 cents would be 35 cents max. I'd heard of window workers overcharging drive through customers and skimming the money for themselves. Someone did just that to me at a Hardees couple of years ago. I didn't have my calculator watch so I got a pen and paper and did the long division since there were 2 cars ahead of me. Let's see ... 483/429 ... over 12 percent tax!? When I got to the window I handed her a 5 and said "what's the sales tax in Huntsville?" She didn't know. I said "$4.83 for a $4.29 meal is 12 percent tax. That can't be right. Can I talk to the manager?" She gave me my change and called the manager. So the manager comes over. I ask what the sales tax is in Huntsville, and she says 8 percent. I say that I just paid $4.83 for a $4.29 meal and that's over 12 percent sales tax. She got a funny look on her face and said that maybe the computer had rung it up wrong or had charged me for the biggie size . She admitted it was supposed to be 4.63, and opened the drawer to give me my extra change. "HA!" I thought to myself. "Six years engineering school has so heightened my mental mathematical adeptness that I can do percentages in my head and my superior intellect has foiled a feeble attempt by a drive-through worker to overcharge me!" So what did this mathematical wizard do next? I took the twenty cents she handed me, proud of my staggering genius, and smugly drove off without my food.
