It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

A question for the Wing Kings out there...

How much corn starch do you add to your rub to crisp up the skin when doing wings indirect? Equal parts? Half? Just a little? Thanks!

    I never use it. Maybe I'll try next time. If I was going to try ot I would apply my rub and let them sit an hour then dust with starch and cook.

    Maybe 2:1 rub to cornstarch.

  • Just did this for the first time. Did ~3:1 rub to baking powder (same idea as cornstarch, just the one I had handy...)

    I don't know if I used to much or what but I measured it out 2:1. Misted with oil on the dry spots. They were great right out of the cooker but we held them and sauced them and it kinda put a chalky coating in your mouth.

    Like the saucing rewetted the cornstarch. Maybe I will try 3:1 next time.

  • Thanks, all. Went with 3 to 1. Just so-so results. I think I'll stick to whole chicken pieces in the future. It's sad to say, but I think wings are missing something when not fried. (The pork butt was phenomenal, however...)

    I use the wife's sifter. Very light coating. Rub then starch. I like for them to sit for an hour or so before I put them on.
