Thanksgiving & Christmas are two of our favorite holidays.

We love everything about these holidays…

The warmth, the love, the family reunions & gatherings with loved ones, and of course, the FOOD!!

But most important of all, 

it’s a time to reminisce, reflect, and smile on the memories we’ve made, the places we’ve been, and the people we’ve met & cared for.

It’s a time to give thanks.

What are you thankful for this year?

Pressure Cooker BBQ Wings

Preheat Oven: While the wings and drumettes are natural releasing, preheat oven to 450F.

Pat Dry the Wings: Remove wings and drumettes from the pressure cooker. Pat dry with paper towels.

Apply Sauce and Finish in the Oven: In a large mixing bowl, toss wings and drumettes with ½ cup (125ml) of your favorite BBQ sauce. Place the wings and drumettes in a single layer on a wire rack in a baking tray. Bake until sauce is glossy and caramelized, for 8–15 minutes.
