What part of the chicken do restaurants use to make Hot wings?

so here's the deal; my girlfriend swears up and down that the 'drumstick' part of the chicken used to make 'hot wings' at restaurants such as Wing Stop, Buffalo Wild Wings, etc. is actually part of the wing. I'm telling her that it is and actual drumstick. So, which is it??? Do they only use parts of the wing, or are the 'drumsticks' actually drumstick from the leg area?

They are from the wing and the "drumstick" is actually a "drummette". Basically remove the tip, then separate the jointed area. I've done it many times when making chicken wings at my previous jobs... More

Your girlfriend is correct. That little drumstick thing is part of the wing NOT part of the leg.

A chicken wing is made up of 3 parts. The wing tip which is discarded normally, the flat and the drumett. It looks like a small chicken leg but it is in fact part of the wing. The drumett is attached to the b****t hence the reason for this part having white meat.

They're wings. The upper part of the wing looks like a little chicken leg. Now go give your girl a hug and thank her for loving you.

I always thought they came from Buffalo! You are both correct: Wings or Drumettes of chicken.
