Wing dilemma

I have a scheduling problem: I need to serve wings 45 minutes after I arrive home. Would you cook halfway and chill, then finish right before eating? Cook completely, warm up in the oven and sauce? I have no option about the choice of food or timing.

    Just an opinion and we all know what those are worth...I would essentially cook til complete w/o the saucing piece then get home, fire up the BGE (knowing that to get to your cook temp w/o the bad smoke will take 20-30 mins) sauce cook and serve.  And for the future, I would push for more time-good luck but wings are quite forgiving.  Enjoy1

    I have a friend with a BBQ joint that does wings.  He smokes them in the morning and refrigerates them.  Then he puts them in the frier to heat and crisp them up at the point of order.  Then he sauces them.

    They are fantastic, and one of his big sellers.

    Maybe that's an option for you.

    Agree with @Greenhawk - We've done this with chicken drumsticks as well, provided they were just smoked, no sauce. Nuke 'em for a minute or two on a low power to warm them a bit, then drop in the deep fryer to crisp the skin. Takes only a minute or two to crisp up, so we pre-warm. Wings are even better, however we seldom have leftovers.

    I was thinking of having wings for dinner tomorrow.  This looks like a great idea so I'll try it out.
