    A burger from 7Bone in Southampton. I spend most of time in Europe and usually try to hunt down a well reviewed burger joint, and majority are massive disappointments compared to the best of the UK's burger scene. It's good to know whenever I dock in Southampton I get to enjoy a proper high quality burger :coma:

    I never used to be a fan of them either, I used to rate them lower than GBK, but the three times I've been in the last year have been a lot better. I still think they sit lower than any independent restaurant/group that's worth its salt, but I feel like I can depend on them for a solid burger if there's nothing else around.

    Handmade Burger Co are probably my least favourite chain, I've consistently had really poor burgers there on the rare occasions I've been dragged there.

    I got some "bacon cheeseburger cheese" the other day. It has little bits of bacon in and a sort of smokey meaty flavor. It's so good. Everytime I get a drink or something in the kitchen I cut off a sliver. :drool:

    ^^^What he said, much cheaper too! You don't even need a deep fryer and they're guaranteed to be crispy rather than risking being steamed on the way to your house in a cardboard box.

    My method for "oven fried" chicken wings
    Spoiler:
    Show


    Ingredients:
    *1 pack of chicken wings
    *1 bottle of Franks Hot Sauce
    *Coarse sea salt
    *Knob of butter (optional)

    1. Preheat your oven to 200C fan (or 220C fanless)
    2. While the oven is preheating, place a couple of layers of kitchen towel on a plate. Take the chicken wings out of the packet and place them on the pape skin-side up, then cover with another couple of layers of kitchen towel (and press it into all the gaps to ensure maximum contact with the skin). The key factor for crispy wings in the oven is to get the chicken skin as dry as possible so we're removing as much moisture as we can before going into the oven. After the first ten minutes change the top layers of towel, which can then be left on until ready to cook.
    3. When the oven has reached temperature, place a wire cooling rack into a baking tray that will fit it, and place the chicken wings on the rack skin-side up. The gap between the bottom.of the wings and the bottom of the tray created by the rack allows airflow under the wings, allowing even cooking without the need for turning.
    4. Sprinkle the wings liberally with sea salt and place in the oven for at least half an hour (40 mins if you're using very large wings). After this time check the colour of the chicken skin. If it's still fairly pale, give them another ten minutes- we're looking for noticeable browning here. When it's taken on a decent brown shade, give the skin a tap to ensure it's crispy, then remove from the oven if you're satisfied. If you're using larger wings, cut into one at this point to ensure the meat has cooked all the way through to the bone. If you're happy with the cooking, leave them to rest for about 5 minutes.
    5. While the chicken wings are resting, add as much Franks sauce as you feel is necessary to coat the wings to your liking (I personally like a relatively thin coating on wings rather than having them drowning in sauce) to a saucepan and warm over a low heat. An optional step at this point is to add a knob of butter to the sauce- the technical difference between hot sauce and buffalo sauce is whether or not butter has been added. For me I'm a fan of buffalo sauce on wings. Once the sauce has warmed through and the wings have tested, add the wings to a mixing bowl (or large saucepan if you don't have a large bowl) and pour over the sauce, tossing them to coat. Then transfer to a plate/bowl and enjoy!
