Your teeth with capture all of the meat in one slick movement. This is one of the fastest ways to eat your wing.
3. The Old Meat Umbrella

If you stop part way through, it will literally look like you are working with a meat umbrella, and while it can be messy and can take some time, it will really help you get all of the meat.
4. The Corn on the Cob
This name is pretty self explanatory. Hold your chicken wing like a piece of corn and start taking tiny nibbles as you rotate the chicken wing around and get to all of the meat. It is a real time saver, if you are trying to down as many wings as possible.
5. The Wishbone
If you have a real chicken wing on your hands and are dealing with a two bone portion of the wing, give the Wishbone a try.
