Chicken wings for new years party

I'm gonna cook chicken wings for a new years party.  I have done them in the past on a raised grid, about 300 until crispy.  Any other suggestions?


  • Last weekend I did some wings, smoked them with some Jack Daniel's wood chips at 250 for I think was a little over an hour. We were doing an experiment with half on the Egg, and half on my Holland grill to see which everyone liked better. I let the ones on the Egg on just about 15 min too long while waiting for the Holland ones to get done. I saw steam/water vapor coming out of the daisy wheel because it was dissapating in the air. I should have taken them off then because they were just a tad tough. Everyone liked the taste of the smokey wings better than the taste of the Holland, but liked the juicyness of the Holland better. So the next ones we do I'll just pull them off earlier.
    For the Sauce, I just brushed them a little with Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet and Spicey with some Crystal's mixed in to give it some zip. Brushed them each side the last flip before taking them off.
  • Thanks and happy New Year!

    Do your wings at 225 for 2 hours then hit them on direct for several minutes.  Mine are tender and juicey.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    Something tells me the wings were cooked a few months ago. Little late on the advice!!!!
