I need chicken wings and veggies ready at the same time. How do I succeed?

    Buy another egg and use one for each? Or, just put the veggie skewers on for the last 10+ minutes. What temp are you cooking the wings?

    That's what I'm asking....temp, time, direct, indirect, raised grid?

    What kind of veggies? How do you want to cook them? If you wok them it will only take a few seconds to cook.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • What temp are you using?  Are you planning on direct or indirect?  Too many things to consider to give you a direct answer.  My last batch of wings, I did around 430 F, indirect for about 20 min/side for a total of 40 minutes.  You could always add your veggies sometime during the 2nd side?

    I find veggies reheat amazingly well, and I do a lot of veggies.  Cook them first, maybe even hours earlier, and then reheat.

    If you have room you can do them in a sealed container, which retains moisture (pic attached), while you do meat on the same grid.  This also let me add some yummy cheese and tomatoes.

    My personal solution; and XL and a LBGE (last pic, veggies on the XL).

    XLBGE X 2, LBGE (gave this one to my daughter), MBGE and lots of toys

    I do wings raised grid around 350*F+/- on the dome and flip around every 15-20 mins til about 45-50 mins in then sauce and back on the BGE for around 10 mins.  Now for your veggies-depends on what they are and how you plan to cook them-I usually toss them in one of those aerated (many holes) grilling pans on a second grid til done (eye ball/taste test).  Should you skewer them you could run them along with the wings-experiment and enjoy the journey.
