Pressure Cooker Wilbur's BBQ Wings

We didn't have big plans on New Year's Eve. The boys went duck hunting, so I knew they would be tired when they got home to plan anything for that evening.  I did have big plans to make lots of food to ring in the new year's, knowing most of the family wouldn't make it to midnight.

Kids favorite is BBQ wings.  Where ever we go, this is what they want to order for their meal. They don't care how messy they get. I am over being embarrassed in pubic while the kids eat wings. I just embrace it, and send them off to wash their face and hands when they are done.

The boys came back tired and exhausted from hunting.  The weather was cool that day, and windy. They came back with red-cheeks, and lots of ducks.  Ryan was also excited about shooting his first mallard.  It was a beautiful duck.  Dave said he is proud the way Ryan is learning how to call  the ducks into the blind. Once in awhile his dad will let him shoot his gun. I think this was his 4th duck this season. 

I didn't have the best of luck finding the wings in the store.  I bought the drumettes that always come with the wings when you get an order.  Perfect bite size, and I think there is more meat on drumettes. 

I kept the wings frozen until they were ready to go into the pressure cooker.

Wilbur's Sweet & Spicy Wing-It Marinade and Dipping Sauce can be found in Rensselaer.  If you have ever craved wing night at the Pub, this is the sauce!!

I coated the frozen wings with the sauce. I used about 1.5 cups.

Then I added the wings to the pressure cooker. My Pressure cooker is similar to this http://amzn.to/2j8Hbw9.  I added about a cup of water.  I know first time recipes you get a little nervous! Ok, I get a little nervous, and I can't see the meat cooking, like you can with a crock pot.  Just have a little faith in your pressure cooker.  Busy moms have other things to do than spend a bunch of time in the kitchen! Embrace it! Put the lid on, set it for 15 minutes.  

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Add more BBQ if you want.  Put under broiler.

I had never used my broiler before, so this was another learning experience.  I would suggest putting under broiler for 3-4 minutes, turn the pan around and broil for another 3-4 minutes.
