Pig Wings

We start with big meaty St. Louis cut ribs, smoke them for 3-4 hours, then crisp them up in the fryer. Tossed with sauce or rub of your choice. We always knew they could fly.

Nickel's Famous Smoked Wings

Created by a Buffalo boy and self-proclaimed "wing snob," our wings are slow-smoked and finished in the fryer for the crispiest, tastiest wing around. Served with our housemade bleu cheese dressing, carrots, and celery.
