After his inaugural appearance on QVC and the Super Bowl closely approaching, Charlie Grooms’ Ladder 51-Flame Broiled Chicken Wings have been asked back for a second appearance on the nationally broadcast TV program.


Ladder 51 has been an associate sponsor on Ed Cooper’s U-3 hydroplane for the past few seasons and "Chicken Wing Charlie" Grooms is the team manager for the U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto.

Grooms is scheduled to appear in Philadelphia on the QVC production set for a special segment called Food Fest, easy-to-prepare and ready-to-serve gourmet foods on Friday January 18, 1:00-2:00pm ET.

"Tell the world we are coming back to QVC," an excited Grooms said.

Grooms from Madison, Ind. has been working for several years on perfecting his patented technique for flame broiling chicken wings and nearly cleaned out his warehouse of chicken wings after the first airing on QVC several months ago.

After trying the wings in October a QVC consumer wrote to QVC and said, "These wings are delicious! Served them to company and they disappeared in 2 minutes. Tastes like they just came off the Bar-B-Que. Just defrost, heat and serve - what could be easier!"

The flame broiled process cooks the majority of the greases out of the wings making for a healthy alternative to traditional chicken wings.

The Ladder 51 wings come in three 2-lb bags of flame broiled wings and six packets of Ladder 51 BBQ sauce. Flash frozen, the wings are hand packed with dry ice by the Grooms family and arrive within two days of shipment.

If you miss the show, Grooms said you can still order via QVC.com, product #M16033.
