Where to get the best Frozen or Fresh Chicken Wings?

I am looking for a place to get the best (must be a good size) chicken wings for making at home. I have had the the brand that Costco sells (Pitchy?) and they are the best I have ever found for a breaded wing, but they don't have any plain, which I need for a homemade recipe. Thanks

  1. Brown Bros. in the south St. Lawrence Market. Big and fresh.

    1. Really? Costco usually has trays of raw wings for about $20.

        Bruno's and McEwen's have very good sized wings (6 -7 pieces/lb.) and will normally pick out larger ones if requested.

          Costco's the place. Trimmed, no waste, nice size.

        2. I find the Asian markets are the best place to get chicken wings. They are cheaper and are usually a good size. The ones at Costco aren`t bad, but are a little on the small side and the ones at Loblaws are very expensive and very small. I often get mine at T & T.

            just buy raw chicken wings and roast them in the oven, they get nice and crisp and delicious. I usually put a bit of oil, garlic salt, oregano and pepper, which gives it a bit of flavor but enough to add other seasonings or sauces afterwards. It goes great with a bit of lemon juice!

          2. Thanks for the responses. Yes I do know that Costco has fresh wings but as per Choclatemama they are always seem to be on the small side. I am looking for good size wings. Need them for this weekend, so it's looking like St. Lawrence Market or T@T. ...As I am coming in from the east T@T may be closer unless anyone has suggestion for farther east,.
