Gobble Stop Smokehouse
(1227 Castillons Arcade Plaza; 314-878-5586)

Sitting in a nondescript strip mall on the northeast corner where Olive Boulevard intersects Fee Fee Road, Gobble Stop Smokehouse specializes in all things chicken. It comes as no surprise then that it can handle some chicken wings -- as evidenced by the second-place finish at Wing Ding in the "Best Specialty" category with its sweet and spicy entry. Like any good barbecue joint, the sauces are excellent and, as mentioned, the sweet and spicy is unparalleled.

EdgeWild Restaurant & Winery
(550 Chesterfield Center, Chesterfield; 636-532-0550)

Yes, this is a winery smack dab in the middle of Chesterfield (no grapes are actually grown on site, but rather unfinished wines are shipped in and allowed to finish the aging process, so there you go). And yes, it's fancy with all the wood finishes and an extensive menu. But here's the thing: EdgeWild's wings won "Best Dry-Rubbed" at the Wing Ding, and then went on to capture the "Judges Overall Favorite." You can't argue with that. An order gets you a half-pound of triple-dry-rubbed wings smoked to perfection. Additionally, it's suggested you pair the wings with a pinot noir -- go ahead, treat yourself.

Until the day I die or the day they change their recipie I say that Michaels (Manchester and McCauseland) has the best wings and if they ever entered them in a contest, their wings would win hands down.
