Yeah it depends on the size of the wing. I find it can be anywhere from 8 to 12.

I can't get over how god damn expensive wings are at pubs and restauraunts

You can pick up a massive pack of air chilled chicken wings at any PC supermarket for like 4 or 5 bucks.. To charge $8.99 for 8 pieces is highway robbery. Probably why I always hate ordering wings anywhere I go -- I just can't justify it

Word....

Actually buying wings at a supermarket isn't cheap either. In Calgary wing nights all over town could be found everywhere for 15-35 cents per wing.

I've seen as few as 6.
They were mutant chickens.

Most places give you 8-14.

"wing nights" in the GTA seem much more expensive to me. at least compared to Ottawa. with the purchase of a drink, you can find a lot of places around here that charge $0.25-$0.35 for a decent quality wing (even less for crap wings).

Remember that making wings at home isn't cheap either.
The raw (retail) cost is $3 per lb. (retail) cost of sauce is another $2 (depending on how much sauce you use), fryer oil/maintenance/etc is another buck or two, plus labor (let's say free since it's a labor of love).

So it's costing you $6-7 for a lb of wings to make at home.
Not to mention it makes your house smell like deep fried.

Even when buying wings in bulk I'm paying $2.50 per lb and $20 per 3L of Franks.

it doesn't matter how many wings are in a pound...you're still gonna eat a pound of wings...it could be 5 jumbo wings or 15 mini wings, point is ur gonna eat the same weight of food (unless ur concerned about how much the bones weigh, lol)

that's just like ordering a pizza, how many slices u want it cut into? when ever the pizza guy asks me how many slices i want it cut into i'll say: "cut it into 6 slices b/c i can't eat 12"...duh, i'm still gonna be eating the same amount of food if i finish the whole pizza...har har har... :D
