Florida’s Best Chicken Wings Are Found In South Florida

When you think Florida, you think Mickey Mouse, the beach, sunshine and maybe oranges.  You’re certainly not thinking of chicken wings.  Sure, there are some great places to grab a bucket of wings with a beer during a game, don’t get me wrong.

But, where can you find Florida’s best chicken wings?

The folks over at EatThis.com did a study to determine the best chicken wings in each state.  So, which wings reign supreme here in Florida?  A place in St. Pete called Dr. BBQ.

While it’s not right here in Southwest Florida, it’s not too far.

Here’s what EatThis.com had to say about Dr. BBQ

Ray “Dr. BBQ” Lampe, pitmaster at the namesake restaurant, has won plenty of awards for his ‘que as an American Royal Hall of Fame pitmaster. What makes the Dr. BBQ wings super special is the dual cooking process: The wings are smoked to get that classic ‘que flavor and then grilled to slowly render the fat from the meat.

So, where are the best places to find chicken wings across the United States?  We decided to share some other locations with you, since most people in Florida, aren’t from Florida.
