ABT's with wings ?

edited January 2012 in EggHead Forum
 I've never done these together so I need some pointers.
 These will be done on an Xl ; maybe 2 racks so there will be a lot of grease. For this reason I'm thinking indirect.
 The few times I've done ABT's I did them at 250 for 2 hrs.
 350-400 ID seems to work good for wings.
 So what temp is this combo best at ?

    Disclaimer-I have a LBGE so don't have the "floor space" that you have:)  That said, I do ABT's and wings raised grid direct at around 350*F on the dome-each takes about an hour+/-.  I would guess you can get decent elevation above the lump. If space is an issue, I would cook the ABT's over the wings-figure the bacon flavor will only enhance your wings. FWIW and since it's free....regardless, it will be "all good".

    Since your going 350 direct would 400 indirect be to hot ?

    Actually with the workings of the BGE 400 indirect is not much different than 350 direct...the platesetter or whatever device you use for the indirect setup results in the dome (gauge) temp reading around 20-40*F higher than the actual grid temp-when indirect.  The indirect setup will definitely reduce/eliminate any grease flareups as you mention-go with whatever you are comfortable with and I'm sure it will turn out just fine.

    Apologize for the rookie question, but what are ABTs?

    @Chubs Atomic Buffalo Turds - Stuffed jalapeno peppers, wrapped in bacon. Here is a link to the recipe. The peppers become sweeter the longer they cook.
