    You could do skin down for 10-15 minutes for chrispyness and then turn skin up for the duration.

    YUMM. I start skin down so the hot grate does it's thing and leaves crusty grill marks. Rotate the grate every 10 minutes to keep things even. Flip after 30 minutes and bring to temp.

    How did the sauce come out looked waaaaayyyyy hot!

    It is good! Very hot but with flavor. Not just pain. I'm the only one in this house who will eat it so I'm giving most away to poor souls at work. Maybe it will get better with age and I'll share next time I see you.
