2nd wing cook

Today I made chicken wings for the 2nd time. I have researched many of the ideas on this site. I put a coat of olive oil on them, a dusting of corn starch, and some chicken rub. Got the egg stabilized at 400 with raised grid. Wings were on for 30 min, turned them another 20 min, and them sauced them with 50/50 mixture of blues hog and apple juice. They went back on for 10 min to let the sauce set. The wings had a great crunch to them and the meat came clean off the bone. Very satisfied with the results!


  • Nice! How was the flavor. Bet they had a great sweetness with BH + AJ.

    That's all that counts, Congrats!
    If you get a chance try Cazzy's wings, not crispy, but really good.

  • Looks fantastic!  Wings are one of my favorite things to cook on the egg.  Grilled tastes so much better than fried.  Are you a Global pilot (judging from your picture)?

  • I haven't attempted wings but this may be a good weekend project.

    Love making wings on the EGG, I go 400 indirect and just let them hang out for about an hour. I toss on whatever rub is handy, this week was a Fin and Feather rub. Mine take a spin with buffalo sauce and SWMBO get Teriyaki. Never have had crispy but they are very juicy and we enjoy them.
