Delicious Hoisin Garlic Smoked Chicken Wings

Sometimes the best things are stumbled upon by accident and this time it was truly a winner.  One Sunday late afternoon I was smoking some chicken wings and ran out of time to finish them on the grill, so I just cooled, bagged and froze them for later.  The following weekend I defrosted some and grilled them up on a high flame and sauced them with a garlic Hoisin sauce…they were amazing!

So here’s what I did.  First I seasoned the wings with my homemade BBQ rub and bagged them for 24hrs.  I smoked the wings on my Memphis Elite Grill at at 180° for about four hours, until the internal temp was around 140°.  I could have easily cranked up the heat and grilled them at that point, but it was late, so I bagged them for later.  

The beauty of smoking and freezing is when it’s time to grill the wings, I can take them anywhere with a hot fire to finish.  Simply defrost and throw the wings on until they start to get nicely colored with a bit of char.  I like to have a stainless mixing bowl of sauce right next to the grill to throw them into when done so that they can start taking up the sauce right away while hot.  I typically try to do a variety of sauces when cooking for a crowd.  I like a simple Buffalo, Honey BBQ and the Hoisin Garlic sauce, but what makes this so fun is that you can get very creative with the sauces.

The smokiness of the wings comes through as an undertone of the sauce flavor and is far superior to any fried wings that I have had.

So if you want to impress your friends with your amazing grilling skills, I recommend smoking the wings low and slow first, until barely cooked.  Then you can finish them on the grill later and watch everybody be amazed at how you got so much flavor in them so “quickly”.

Superior Glass Makes the Difference

Spiegelau’s Beer Classics Glasses Enhance Beer Drinking Pleasure

Spiegelau is dedicated to producing the very best glasses possible. This means bringing to the market glasses of the highest quality and aesthetics as well as durability and value, with the goal of making your experience a pleasurable, fun part of today’s exciting lifestyle. That´s why Spiegelau glasses grace the tables of so many homes and fine restaurants across the world, and remains a leader in the industry. Spiegelau makes fine stemware and tableware for everyday use. Spiegelau crystal beer glasses are different from regular glasses because of the combination of rarified, unusually pure mineral source at the Dorfner mine in Austria. The Hirschau-Schnaittenbacher basin is one of the most important deposits of kaolin, silica sand and feldspar on the European continent. Spiegelau sources raw quartz silica, combined with state of the art production methods to create their highly superior crystal glassware.

In the images below you see a chip of common glass and a chip of Spiegelau crystal magnified to varying levels to show the difference in glass quality that separates Spiegelau from the rest.

Image 1

This image shows a chip of common glass magnified at 20x. Note the Lip Edge & ID Edge as we’ll zoom in on those.

Image 2

In this image you see a chip of Spiegelau crystal magnified at 50x. Note the different shape of the lip edge.

Image 3

Remember the Lip Edge box from Image 1, here it is at 1000x and the common glass is starting to show its flaws. Note the lines and random surface irregularities.

Image 4

Now here is the Spiegelau at 1500x. Even at 500x closer than the common glass in image 3, the Spiegelau is looking rather smooth. Note the small chip on the edge in the center of the picture as we’re zooming into that next.

Image 5

Here is that chip in image 4 now zoomed in at 20000x. The Spiegelau crystal surface is still exceptionally smooth. This smoothness has a direct impact on the way the beers carbonation reacts.

Image 6

Here is the common glass lip edge at 20000x magnification. This no longer looks like glass but some kind of lunar surface. The roughness of common glass absorbs carbonation, robbing your beer of a very important part of the drinking experience.

Image 7

Here is the common glass interior surface magnified at 20000x. This is another shot at the carbonation robbing, porous surface of common glass.

Image 8

Here we see the Spiegelau crystal interior surface magnified at almost 22000x. Even at this level the surface is super smooth and that smoothness allows your fine beers to maintain their natural carbonation, thus maintaining a creamy head much longer than common beer glasses.

In the pictures below you’ll see the difference that great glass makes. Notice how the standard beer glasses seem to be lacking a head while the Spiegelau is still creamy and inviting.

Beers served in common glasses do not fully release their delicate aromas and often taste bland and uninteresting. A poorly designed glass can also destroy the spritzy refreshing character of a beer and let the head collapse too soon. It is partly due to the wrong choice of beer glasses that many beers are perceived as tasting pretty much the same. Spiegelau Beer Classics Crystal Beer Glasses will help you get the most out of your beer drinking experience and may even open you up to many beers that you had thought were not for you.

Postal Worker Finds Drug-Free Relief from Chronic Pain & Stress During Bitter 2014 Winter

Online massage chair purchase proves to be the key to improved health.

Mustang, OK (PRWEB) February 16, 2014

Terrie Munsey, a US Postal Carrier from Mustang, OK had chronic pain from years of walking her postal route. After doing some research, she decided that a massage chair might help soothe those body aches that had been plaguing her for so long.

Terrie had checked the State Fair and several massage chair stores only to be disappointed by the costs and lack of features she was seeing in those chairs. The freezing weather outside was not helping her find one either. Then Terrie came across the Osaki Massage Chairs for sale online at

After comparing the different options, features and prices she decided that the OS-4000 Executive Massage Chair, featuring Osaki’s Zero Gravity technology, would best fit her needs. The convenience of online shopping meant that there was no need to further brave the frigid cold.

“I was just amazed by how much relief I got using the chair. I’m glad that I didn’t have to wait for the weather to clear to get it delivered.” “I’m a letter carrier and we are beat up and in pain every day. I love coming home and relaxing away the stress of the day. Being a Letter Carrier is tough work, but this chair has helped my aches and pains go away, plus the stress relief has actually helped level out my blood pressure too,” says Terrie. “I loved my Osaki chair right from the start and after only a day or so of using it, I bought one for my mother too.”

While the upfront cost of a massage chair may seem daunting, in reality they offer an incredible long term value by saving the user money spent on massage therapy, dangerous pain killers and other medicines as well as therapy for anxiety or stress.

As little as 15 minutes of chair massage each week has been scientifically proven to foster alertness, strengthen the immune system and rejuvenate the mind and body by lowering stress and reducing muscle tension.

The benefits of massage are well documented as massage therapy subjects reported less pain, lower blood pressure, less headaches or migraines, fewer sleep disturbances, and they showed an increase in serotonin levels as well.
