Zane's Tavern
Aspen & Snowmass

It's one of the lone dives left in town with a classic and consistent bar food menu. With two locations, Zane's also lives up to its "best wings in Aspen" self-proclamation with an 11-flavor lineup: Nashville Hot, Original, Cajun, BBQ, Korean BBQ, Chipotle, Habanero Hot, Teriyaki, Asian Chili Garlic, Sriracha, and Spicy Chesapeake Bay ($12.95). zanestavern.com

Hickory House
Aspen

Hide out at the Hick for fried chicken wings with plenty of heat. Rated on a spicy meter of exclamation points, we always order a mash-up of BBQ, Hawaiian, Hot, Asian Heat, and Blazin' ($8.99 for 8, $12.99 for 12, $19.99 for 20).

J-Bar
Aspen

Bigger is always better, and the Twice Cooked Chicken Wings at the infamous historic saloon are always plump and juicy ($16), coated in a chipotle honey glaze with giardiniera and chunky blue cheese on the side (we also like to ask for a side of the buttermilk ranch served with the BBQ Chicken Salad).

Slow Groovin' BBQ
Snowmass

We've been skiing Snowmass even more this season just so we can feast at Slow Groovin's newly opened second location straight off the slopes. Try the Smoked Chicken Wings ($6 half a pound; $12 full pound) with raspberry chipotle sauce (classic buffalo and BBQ are also on the menu).

Home Team BBQ
Buttermilk

After a December opening, the smoke pits have been firing the freshest meats in town non-stop.While many go for the pork and ribs, Fiery Ron's Smoked Chicken Wings ($7.75 for 6; $14.50 for 12) are already famous. They're dry rubbed with secret magic dust and served with a sweet and tangy Alabama White Sauce; the add-on Death Relish ($1) is mandatory for a full flavor explosion. hometeambbq.com
