    Oh by the way...thank you in advance. I'm at work and only have a few minutes here and there so this is easier than searching all over the net for a recipe I think will be good.

    I like to do mine indirect at 250 dome. I do them for 2-21/2 hrs. after the first hour I turn and rearrange every 20 min. & the last 30 use your favorite sauce.

    Sound simple and easy. For the last 30 do you take them off and coat them in sauce and then put them back on for 30?

    I must confess to deep frying wings, then covering in Franks Red Hot Thick Wing Sauce-Hot.

    I like spic to, I use whatever my favorite commercial cajun style rub is at the time, lots of rub, raised grid direct at 275-300flip ever 20 min or so, just before they are done I pull, crank the egg up to 350ish, shake the wings in a bowl with BBQ sauce, something not to sweet, cattlemans is not bad, Sweet baby rays original maybe, back on the egg for 4-5 min a side for just a little char

    Actually some people do deep fry on their eggs. It is a little risky in my opinion though.
    Fidel does really good wings. He cooks on the Egg, tosses in wing sauce, then puts them back on the egg a few mintes to carmelize/crisp. I think his setup is raised direct.

    These are coated in Italian bread crumbs, cooked direct in a raised grill at 350 for about 30 minutes. This is kinda like fried wings w/o the grease

    Does anything go on prior to the bread crumbs like an egg mixture? They look great.
    I did bonless breasts that way once but with Panko, which turned out really good.

    add turbinado sugar to your favorite rub, (3 parts rub, 1 part turb. sugar or similar) cook high in dome, temp is up to you. I like 350+ dome, quasi direct/indirect set up. first part direct, second part indirect.

    the turbinado will start to get gooey right before wings are done, takes about 60-75 minutes depending on wing thickness and cook temp. let them set for 10 minutes before eating.

    Sriracha sauced wings. I tried this and liked it enough to do it again the very next time I do wings. It is not as hot as it sounds but does have a good bite.

    Yes, I use Egg Beaters for the wash prior to coating them. I also mix in Dizzy Pig with the bread crumbs for added flavor. Thanks for the kind words

    For an off-the-shelf grocery store BBQ sauce, I really like Stubbs'. It comes in Original, Spicy (yum), Sweet, and others. Good stuff!

    I go stupidly simple:
    1) Heat the egg up to 400, with a direct, raised grid.
    2) Take the frozen wings out of the bag, and scatter them on the grid.
    3) After about 15 minutes, coat the top of the wings with Dizzy Pig raging river rub (RRR).
    4) After another 15 minutes, flip the wings, and toss on more Dizzy Pig RRR.
    5) After 25-30 more minutes (about an hour, total), pull the wings off and enjoy!

    Not an Egg Recipe, but still my favorite wings. These are a copy of Hooters wings.

    1c AP flour
    1tsp salt
    1/2tsp paprika
    1/2tsp garlic powder
    1/2tsp cayenne pepper
    1/4tsp black pepper

    Combine ingredients in a bowl.
    Coat wings in mixture
    Refrigerate for an hour
    Coat chicken with flour mix again
    Deep fry at 375 until they float

    Drain and apply hot sauce
    Traditional Host sauce- Equal parts melted butter and Franks hot sauce.

    Damn wish I had read this before going to store tonight. I ended up just making hamburgers because the only wings the grocery had were frozen and I didn't have time to thaw them. Never thought about just throwing them on frozen. I did get some stuff to make ribs tomorrow and a couple fatties. So all is not lost!
  • This is a little different than most, but people seem to love it.

    Direct grill on the bge with smoke (whatever wood you prefer) at about 400 until you get a little char. About 10 minutes per side.
    While they're grilling warm franks, butter, garlic, honey, and diced hot peppers (which peppers depends on your heat level) in a large deep baking pan/casserole.
    Toss the par-grilled wings in the sauce and bake at 350 for about an hour.
    Remove wings and reserve baking sauce.
    Place wings on sheet pan and broil on high until skin crisps.
    Toss in reserved sauce and enjoy!

    I know this sounds like a production, but what you get is the smoke, complexity, and depth of flavor from a slow cooked meat with the char and crispness of a grilled meat. Try it and you'll have a hard time doing them any other way.

    @CaptHowdy;

    Next you want ribs and are short on time, try this.

    I asked a question on a previous post about dome vs. grill temp. on a direct cook. The purpose was to determine what dome temp. to use for direct cooking of BB's. I decided to try 300 dome with my AR oval grill at the felt line. Before we got the large Egg we would do BB's on a Weber gasser. Although we love low and slow ribs, I needed to come up with a way to do them when I didn't get home from work until 6 PM. Since the wife didn't like to mess with the grill, I couldn't start cooking until I got home and I didn't want to wait until 10 or 11 PM to eat, so I came up with a way to have ribs with a 1 hour cook. We've been doing these for the last 10 years or so, when time was a issue.


     

    I'd have the wife take the ribs out of the fridge an hour before I got home and rub them with Worcestershire and season. Then I would cook for 30 minutes bone side down @ 325, flip and cook meat side down for 10 minutes, flip and add sauce and cook for another 20 minutes, pull and tent with alum. foil for 10-15 minutes.


     

    The following pics are my 1st attempt to do a fast cook on the Egg @300 dome at the felt line.


     

    2 racks cut in half to fit on the oval grill, 1 rack seasoned with Dizzy Dust Coarse and 1 seasoned with McCormicks Montreal Steak Seasoningimage


     

    After 30 minutes flipped to meat sideimage


     

    After 10 minutes flipped back to bone side and saucedimage


     

    After 20 minutes, pulled and tented for 15 minutesimage


     

    Sliced up and ready to eatimage


     

    What I will do different next time is start the fire in 4 spots, half way between the center of the lump and fire box. On this cook I started the fire in 1 spot, dead center of the lump. This created some hot spots during the 1st 30 minutes of the cook. I may reduce the dome to 275 and cook at the felt line or add the extender to the AR and cook higher in the dome @ 300. If you want BB's and time is an issue, give this a try and post what you think.
