Good morning all, just got my large BGE. Used it 3 times wings, steaks and butterflied chicken. Last night is the first time I added an extender, indirect, soaked wood chips (just a hand full for added smoke flavor), plate setter legs down and chicken wings (drums and wings separated). Rub with salt, pepper and garlic powder only. I put the wings in the middle and the drums at the edge (grid full). Consistent 400F and 40 mins cook time. I never opened it and just checked to make sure it stayed 400F (built in temp gauge).
Opened after 40 minutes. The ones in front (immediate front of me) are perfect crisp however, as it gets further its gets dryer and the ones at the very end were burnt. I am experimenting on slow cook/indirect heat, however what concerns me is the uneven heat. I remember spreading the charcoals. What could have went wrong?
