Meatwave Rating: 8 out of 10

A competition approved sweet profile gets a lot of depth by way of Worcestershire along with a mellow heat and tang to create an overall crowd-pleasing flavor.

Piri Piri Wings https://meatwave.com/blog/piri-piri-chicken-wings-recipe Joshua Bousel Piri Piri Wings

Piri piri wings have been on my radar for quite awhile to try out, but not being all that familiar with piri piri sauce, I've let them sit on the sidelines for a long time. Nothing has really changed about my knowledge and interaction piri piri sauce, but I decided to just go for it this year, knowing that one day I'll probably look back and know what I put out into the world may have been somewhat ill-informed, although it is certainly delicious. So with that disclaimer, here's my first shot at some piri piri wings.

Thai Red Curry Wings https://meatwave.com/blog/thai-red-curry-chicken-wings-recipe Joshua Bousel Thai Red Curry Wings

With my increased interest in Thai cooking over the past year, it should come as no surprise there would be a Thai-inspired wing tossed into the mix of this year's Wing Month. The main reason I began cooking Thai food at home was to try to get more authentic flavors than what local restaurants serve up, and having familiarized myself with a lot of those special ingredients, these Thai red curry wings take full advantage of that knowledge and make no compromise or substitutions on what's more traditional. That may make the final recipe a little daunting to some, but you have to trust me, seeking out and learning about these flavors and ingredients pays off immensely in the end.

Chicken Wings Inasal https://meatwave.com/blog/filipino-chicken-wings-inasal-recipe Joshua Bousel Chicken Wings Inasal

TGIJ: Thank god it's January, otherwise known at The Meatwave as Wing Month! For those new to the blog, I devote the first month of each new year entirely to one of my favorite foods—chicken wings. It always feels like an arduous wait to get here though because I develop these wing recipes throughout the year and then sit on them until we hit January, and these are usually some of my favorite things I've cooked, making holding off on sharing them pretty tough. But alas, Wing Month has arrived and the chicken will floweth for five glorious weeks, starting off with these Filipino-inspired chicken wings inasal.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatball Skewers https://meatwave.com/blog/bacon-cheeseburger-meatball-skewers-recipe Joshua Bousel Cheeseburger Meatballs

When I decided to throw a cocktail party themed cookout aptly name "The Meat Ball," it felt wrong not to include at least one meatball creation on the menu. My problem with crafting the menu for this Meatwave though was that I had so many ideas, cutting them down was difficult, and in the end I made an unprecedented nine new recipes. So that left me with a need to focus on the simplicity and the speed of the recipes as primary considerations, and of the few meatball ideas I had, these bacon cheeseburger meatball skewers fit that criteria best, plus I was sure they would look pretty damn cool.

Charred Corn and Green Chili Queso https://meatwave.com/blog/charred-corn-and-green-chili-queso-recipe Joshua Bousel Charred Corn & Green Chili Queso

Queso is a pretty surefire bet to be a hit at any party. That's why I decided to make for a Superbowl shindig last winter, but little did I know that this new recipe I was working on would outdo any queso I've made before. The change and the secret—Velveeta Queso Blanco, which rendered a great flavor and perfect consistancy to my green chili dip. I've made this dip a couple times since then to continued fanfare, tinkering with the recipe a little each time. I think it's finally ready to be unleashed onto the world now as this charred corn and green chili queso.

Oh man, it's been five years since I last made a chicken salad. That kind of boggles my mind because that last recipe for a smoked chicken salad was a real winner, and I enjoyed having leftovers in the house for a few days to make easy lunches and snacks. After making that recipe too, I had all these ideas for different types of chicken salad that I left unrealized until recently when I decided to make this smoked curried chicken salad.
