Wings - not so good results

So it seems like most every time I try something new on the Egg, I screw it up, and then wait for you guys to tell me what I did wrong... and this is no exception.

So here's the background - I did my research, and after reading the different techniques folks use for wings, I decided I'd try Fidel's preferred method, which was direct, raised grid, 350 degrees for about an hour.

However, the results were less than pleasant - overly charred outside :(

I used these 2 rubs:


Then I setup the Egg as a raised grid (using a couple fire bricks) and got temp to about 350:


So after about 20 minutes or so, the wings actually were looking (and smelling) pretty dang good (although, the very tips of the wings were starting to get charred, but I figured that was OK cuz there's no meat on the tips anyway): :whistle:


But, after the hour (actually, I think it was about 50 minutes or so, they looked like this: :angry:


sooooooooo, what did I do wrong?????

Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee
