Today is an absolutely huge day for the wing world as a new documentary, The Great Chicken Wing Hunt takes flight! The film, directed by and starring Matt Reynolds - a close friend of the Cluckbucket - follows a crew of wing lovers on an epic journey from Manhattan to Buffalo in a quest to find the best buffalo wing in the world.
The Cluckbucket brothers were proud to play an exciting role in the film, joining the hunters for their last couple of stops in Buffalo and helping to moderate the pinnacle of the film - a heated debate on which wing was truly the best wing and whether or not it was a true authentic wing. How did things turn out? We'l, you'll just have to watch the movie to see...
