I'm gonna have to say drums. Easier to eat and seems like more meat.

Drums

What kind of fucking cromagnon would prefer flats? That bit of meat between the bones is just awful.

I think I like the drums a little bit more. But they’re both good. The flats have more succulent innards as triple mentioned.

Like em both but prefer the flats a bit more. Cant really explain why. More fun to eat maybe?

Drums, mainly because they are more fun to eat for me. I eat fried chicken Baptist preacher-style - I strip every single piece clean to the bone. You can do the technique from the video, but there is still meat on those bones!

You can also redip a drum into sauce or blue cheese more easily than a flat, and I love my sauces and blue cheese dressing. It's hard to sop up every drop of a delicious peanut butter sauce with a flat, but drums you can get two or three bits out of.

I like em both as well, but prefer the flats. I think there are more creases in there to catch flavor, but then again the drums have potential for more crispy skin. My research is not scientific.

Flats are more consistent.

Drums can sometimes feel like the salmonella lottery.

Who cares? It's all about how it's cooked and the sauces. There is this dive bar by me with amazing wings. Like mini fried chickens. Then I need either a spicy dry rub, hot garlic parmesan, hot, or sweet heat. Mmmm

Places here in Buffalo started doing traditional wing sauce with Cajun spice sprinkled on top afterward. It’s divine.

Ugh, time for some over priced wings and wedges. B-Dubs, here I come.

Wingettes, but I got to have the drumettes with them.

I enjoy both but I prefer flats. The meat is easier to strip from the bone. (Plus the skin makes for a much nicer crispy texture.)

Also drumettes don’t really have all that much more meat when you think of it. About half of it is bone and cartilage.

Flats all the way. I wish I could buy bags of just flats. With how much much everyone else seems to like the drums more, it seems like that shouldn't be a problem. Yet, here we are, living in a world where I can't get all flats. And people have the audacity to bitch about fake oppression while I'm sitting here eating drums.

I've never heard wings called "flats". Is that a European thing?
I'm in Ohio, heard them called wingettes/drumettes or wings/drums.

Haven't heard the term flats until looking stuff up online. 🤷

You can get a pack of flats at walmart lol.

I like drums, the wife likes flats. It's caused problems.

While I know I prefer on the bone, we have gone boneless for the sake of the marriage and the kids.
