The combination of lemon and black pepper is now legendary at Atlanta’s wings spots. You can buy lemon powder, but it’s quick and easy to dehydrate lemon peels in the oven, then grind them to create the base for this powerful spice blend. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the yellow zest (but not the white pith, which is bitter) from a few lemons. Dry the peels on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet in a 200°F oven until crisp, 20 to 30 minutes. (The lemon peels will crisp as they cool.) Let cool completely before grinding.
