lazy man's report

I decided to use one of those key rings and two carriage bolts, each set up with two big washers and a wingnut. I threaded the key ring (diameter about 3/4") onto two grills, then put a bunch of thighs and drums sticks onto the grill. I then tightened down the two wingnuts on the opposite side of the grills. The result was very secure.[p] I placed them direct onto a 250 egg. Every ten minutes I gave the grill a rotation of a quarter or half turn, depending on my mood. Every twenty minutes I flipped them. I think the total cook time was about an hour and a half. Results were pretty good, and pretty consistent in their cook. [p]I plan on doing a couple big messes of wings these weekend. I will give a report then, but, for now, I think this setup (or one like it) is the way to go for those of us with limited attention span. [p]Have a nice weekend.


  • hounddog,[p]So you're saying you had good flippage?

  • hounddoghounddog Posts: 126
    pretty much. No slippage on the flippage to be precise. <s>

    I did the same thing using paperclips believe it or not. You don't have to inhale so much smoke when they are tied together. You just reach in and flip with no slip. I wander if jerky would be so easy?[p]Steve

    Do you mean paper CLIPS, or those paper clamps with the fold-back thingies? I use those clamps all the time for a variety of stuff; they rank right up there with Duct Tape and WD40 for Essential Items that Preserve Harmony in the Universe.

    Just regular paper clips. A whole box will allow you to cook a truck load of wings. :-) Whoever invented those paper clamp things is a genius, however. I sit and play with those things all day at work.[p]Steve

  • Pug,
    I think a roll of duct tape would be my "Survivor" luxury item...or a Large Egg.
