    I used canola oil and it just doesn't do it for me.

    Always fry in peanut oil if you want the best flavor.

    Peanut oil gives a great flavor but is rather expensive. I've always used vegetable oil for wings. 8 to 10 minutes a batch at 375 degrees. Not overcooked or dried out but perfectly cooked and moist. Toss in your favorite wing sauce and BAM....

    Damnit im hungry now.

    I worked in a lot of restaurants when I was younger and my experience was that Peanut oil would last longer before needing changed out and gave a much better flavor.

    At $14.00/gal from Walmart, it's too expensive.

    Peanut oil, coconut oil, or sunflower oil.

    Peanut oil is expensive. BUT- just pour it through a filter and refrigerate. I've always got a pot of oil in my downstairs fridge. It is slow to breakdown due to it's high smoke point, so you'll get many uses from it.

    Many GTers recommend Amsoil or Royal Purple. Personally I think they are overkill for standard wings.

    Now, if you have high-performance wings or wings that have been modified with performance enhancements then you might want to give them a try. :tongueout::tongueout:

    I didn't fry wings in it, but last year I rendered like 40-50 pounds of bear fat and I cooked some fries in it and they were pretty tasty.:supergrin:
