I usually do quite a lot of planning when I'm having a crowd to dinner. That's true even if it's just a cookout. It may seem a long way off to you, but Fourth of July will be here before you know it, so I'm starting to jot some notes down as I plan the menu. I'll have to do a post on my "folder system" soon.

I've been making these simple BBQ wings since the 70's. The original recipe came from my friend Norma. I've tweaked them and they're still easy and still delicious. My one warning is this: make them in a disposable aluminum pan. The clean up isn't worth it!

3 lbs wings, tip removed, separated into 2 pieces
2 tbs vegetable or canola oil
salt and pepper
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
3 cloves garlic, chopped finely

Wash and dry the wings. In a large, shallow disposable aluminum pan, mix the wings with the oil until they are coated, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix together the honey, soy sauce, ketchup, and chopped garlic and pour over the wings, turning to coat. Bake 60-75 minutes, until wings are carmelized. Turn once during cooking. These reheat well, but lose their crispiness if you do reheat.
