Let's say you're hungry — really hungry — and those tiny chicken wings whose meat you have to nibble off aren't going to cut it, but you want the wings taste and feel. Turkey wings are barbecued wings for a giant, or, for Super Bowl 2012, a Giants fan.

Directions

For the turkey

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spread the turkey parts onto a baking sheet and drizzle canola oil on them then season with salt and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes.

For the barbecue sauce

Mix all ingredients together then set aside. When the turkey comes out of the oven after 45 minutes, brush the sauce on the turkey, then place back in the oven for 25 minutes. Take the wings out and turn over, then brush that side with sauce. Bake for another 25 minutes or until juices run clear when pierced.

Notes

*I like to use organic ketchup because it has fewer chemicals that will change the flavor while cooking at a high temperature.
