    HOLY S#^T!!! These are unreal. Made them tonight in anticipation of the Blue Jays opening day and they are gone well before first pitch. I decided to go against the grain and use fresh parm. I had a nice chunk in the fridge and grated it with my zester to get it nice nd fine, and it melted amazingly in the sauce. Also went raised direct. Can't get over how crispy the skin was. Great recipe Griff. Go Jays!!!

    Would these turn out ok without a raised grid? 
  • Greeno55Greeno55 Posts: 621
    For sure. Griffins original recipe was cooked indirect. You could go direct, but unless you find a way to raise it slightly, with the use of fire bricks or something, that fat in chicken wings can cause some flare ups.

    i gotta try these wings they look tasty

    Yep, raised direct, and corn starched, always. In fact another 2 packs of wings from Costco are being defrosted for tomorrow.

    Never had it with Parm. So Griff, is it just parm and no rub? God! These threads get so long and I am too old, I cant remember what the OP was anymore. :) Or, do I blame the Double Oak?  :))

    Griifin, OK got it. Sorry!

    The baking powder part:

    Baking powder is a combination of Sodium Bicarb and corn starch.

    Baking "soda" is just Sodium Bicarb. only, which is a "rising" agent in cooking/baking.

    Starch is what "crisps" things up in the baking powder. The soda is the leavening agent.

    Just do corn starch for wings. And have low sodium. Makes the wings..... heart healthy.

    Sure. I just went indirect because i was cooking them on the MINI and the grate (even with a WOO) is a lot closer to the lump. I was worried that all the fat would cause flare ups and burn them. I would go raised grid in a large if that was what I was using.

    Welp, I too gave these a shot. Followed the recipe for the most part. Rubbed wings with garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning and salt. I used the parm from the shaker can and crushed two entire bulbs of fresh garlic along with two sticks butter for the sauce. The baking powder really helped crisp the wings up. They were delicious.

    @Griffin ;   I do cook  direct whole chicken and wings on the Mini (with Woo).. You JUST HAVE to keep so much closer eye on them and have your adult beverage pre made  (or two ).

    Looks phantastic, Grif! I always coat my wings in the baking powder before placing on the rub. Never tried mixing it together like that before. Not sure if there would be any difference.
    Based on one of your old posts, I used corn starch. Found it is easier to mix with the rub and then toss the whole works at once, much like @LTAFlynEgg said. The crispness is determined by the rub to starch ratio. Crispness varies from rub to rub probably based on the starch fillers already in the rub (just a guess on my part).

    Looks great @JerkChicken. Glad they worked out for you.

    @Mickey - I'm lazy. Sounds like too much work. ;)

    Sounds like corn starch or bakind powder would probably work.

    Skiddy is right. I looked this up once after wondering why baking powder or cornstarch was used to "crisp" things. I had only know them as leaveners and thickeners respectively.

    Cornstarch is added to many things as filler(like baking powder) It is intended to be an inert ingredient in baking powder(active stuff is the weak acid and weak base - bicarb and tartaric acid). Cornstarch is just there for bulk and to absorb moisture to make BP shelf stable. An unintended benefit is the crisping factor.

    I cooked Griffen's garlic parmesan wings last year for our Super Bowl party and they were a hit.  

    My wife demanded that I cook them again for today's SB party. After an exhaustive search online, I found his site (https://griffinsgrub.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/garlic-parmesan-chicken-wings/) and printed out the recipe.

    These are the best garlic parm wings I've had.
