Smokey Bones and its virtual brand The Wing Experience will introduce new Whole Wings to their menus on Monday, May 24. The new, premium bone-in product consists of a drumstick, flat and wingtip, making them larger than the typical bone-in wing order of drumsticks and flats but with the same amount of meat.

The Whole Wings are available traditional style or smoked and with the same selection of sauces and rubs already found on the menu. Whole Wings will be sold in orders of four pieces for $14.99 or eight pieces for $22.99.

Smokey Bones and The Wing Experience have added Whole Wings to the menus in response to the nation-wide chicken shortage, which has had a large impact on bone-in wings. The two restaurants will continue to serve traditional wings, but there may be times when they are unavailable due the shortage and the new Whole Wings will be a second option.

“Meat is what we do at Smokey Bones, and our wing-loving guests should be able to enjoy our delicious bone-in options whenever the craving strikes; we don’t want to leave them empty-handed due to the chicken shortage,” says James O’Reilly, Smokey Bones CEO. “Not only are the Whole Wings a great alternative that offer the same quality and delicious flavors found in our traditional wing orders, but they give us an opportunity to innovate and expand our wings menu by offering guests even more options.”

Smokey Bones is available for dine-in and online ordering for curbside pick-up or direct delivery from its restaurants.

The Wing Experience now also features a category-leading menu of 50 wing flavors.
