This is crazy

I wanted to cook five wings for lunch today.  I could fit five wings on the mini, I am pretty certain of it.  The mini uses almost no charcoal, in fact I think the charcoal mates in there and makes more every time I cook.  But ever since getting the XL, I just want to use it.  Its like having a prius, but wanting to drive the F350 to work every day, crushing any prius in your way.


The wings in brown sugar and granulated garlic only:



Put the charcoal basket from my Weber Performer in to get a direct/indirect setup:



Put the wings on (this looks ridiculous):



Add franks and melted butter, and eat:

    You are correct that does appear crazy if you have a mini in the vicinity. But the EGGers are CRAZY  :))

    I noticed that only 4 wings made it to the plate after the cook...  ;)
  • You should have gone to store and bought more wings...that's crazy

    I do partial lump cook on the XL all the time.  Welcome to understanding the usefulness of the big cooker.  A Mini would be great to transport, but you can cook on any size using no more lump.  Just light what you need.

    If the world is something you accept rather than interpret, then you're susceptible to the influence of charismatic idiots.

    Currently in Albuquerque, where I'm kicking ass every day, even without a basket.

    The ceramic interior of your XL is much too white and virginal.  You need to host a humongous pizza party for SLC and one dude from Ogden, and get her dirtied up.   :-??
