MMM Jack Daniel's

I love JD! I love everything about it. When I was on the National Players Tour 57 we were near Lynchburg Tennessee. Me and a few other guys from the tour decided to take advantage of a little early morning free time and went on tour of the distillery. It was one of the best experiences of my life! During the entire tour you smelled Jack Daniel's in the air. They have a life sized picture statue of him. he was a very tiny man.

I recently made a Jack Daniel's skinless fried chicken which was very delicious. I am currently perfecting the recipe. Once I figured it out I'll post it online. Until then I have a few favorite recipes from the Jack Daniel's website. I will periodically post some of the recipes on here. This is the next recipe I plan on trying out. With any of these recipes I like to put a little twist on them. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get it just right.

Jack Hot Wings


¾ cup all-purpose flour

1 ½ teaspoons salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

2 pounds chicken drumettes

Vegetable oil


½ cup (1 stick) butter

½ cup Jack Daniel's® Tennessee Whiskey

¼ cup ketchup

1/3 cup hot pepper sauce, or to taste

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Coat the wings with the flour mixture. Heat 2 to 3 inches of oil in a fryer or heavy pot to 365°F. Fry wings, a few at a time, until golden brown on all sides and cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Dip cooked wings in the sauce. Serve with blue cheese dressing and fresh celery and carrot sticks. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

To bake the wings, place them in a roasting pan. Brush wings with melted butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a 450°F oven until lightly browned and cooked through, about 30 minutes. Don't forget you can grill the wings over medium heat for about 30 minutes, turning frequently.

I hope this works!

I would say that I'm glad that things are changing with the Redskins. As a Life long fan I have seen a lot of change mostly during Dan Snyders reign as Owner and guy who runs his franchise like a guy whose played too much madden... This is probably the one time during all this change that I actually feel like good things might be happening.

The reason for this really has nothing to do with adding Bruce Allen or Mike Shanahan. That would be to simple. To just say hey we got some new guys, they've got experience they've won before. Most people that we bring in have won something before or they wouldn't be in the NFL. The reason I believe that things actually my change is Daniel M. Snyder did something this year I have never seen him do... He apologized!

If you're a true redskins fan...shit If you're a sports fan of anything you know that owners rarely if ever apologize. They usually place the blame on so many people besides themselves. So when Dan Snyder apologized I was shocked! I watched the video several times. He took blame for basically the fact that the Redskins have sucked for so long.

This is why now I believe in the change that is taking place. How can you truly change anything when in your mind you don't see anything wrong? Don't Fucking let us down guys!
