Sunday cook - steak, sausage, wings & asparagus (heavy pics)

I'm preparing for a church cookout next week and wanted to test whether "Dumpty" SBGE can cook for 30 people in a few hours' time because that's all the time I have to cook. So last Sunday, I threw a bunch of things at it to see what I can do with it. At the same time, I've been learning from everyone in this forum here over the past few months so I thought "it's a good time to try a few recipes." 

I put dizzy pig rubs on steaks (different for each one). Got the egg to 500F and seared the steaks right above the fire ring using CI grate before lowering temp to around 350-400 and cook it raised grid throughout the rest of the time. Also tried a modified version "sweet sticky wings" from @NecessaryIndulgences. Only difference to the recipe is I added honey, paprika, butter and used satay sauce instead of thai chili sauce to keep it milder for the kids. Also, didn't put too much of the sauce on it.

Here's how it came out - all tasty and great!! Loving the eggs. Thanks everyone for sharing your expertise.

I'm learning every day.

    Very nice...that is a lot of cooking on the small!  It looks like it all turned out great.  

    You will soon have to change your handle to "bbqmaster". 

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @Charlie tuna Yep. Pretty much gone today. Made me realize I need extra space/grid to cook enough for 30 people this Sunday. Will probably need to cook some beforehand and reheat.
