Frozen Wings just fine

MickeyMickey Posts: 17,539
Did this before and could not remember how it worked out. Sunday late Linda wanted a chicken breast so cranked up the Mini. While it was cooking (about two mins left) I thought wings would be nice and had about a doz frozen in the garage. So pulled her chicken and just dumped the wings on Mini. Had a bottle go Bone Sucking Sauce Rub that had not been used. So after about three mins flipped wings and applied rub to soft side. About three mins later flipped once more and applied rub again. The wings cooked up just fine from pure frozen state. The Bone Sucking Sauce Rub was very mild, just like the sauce that I mix 50/50 with Blues Hog for BBQ chicken anyway. About every 3 months I pull a bag full of rubs and take to work, it will be in the next bag. Ok, this was a long way to say if no time just put the frozen wings ( or breast) on the Egg.

    Interesting. I know you can do a butt from frozen, never thought about wings.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I do wings raised direct with a dome temp around 370-375* without burning.

    Good tip @Mickey.  FWIW I have also done a grilled chicken breast from frozen.  Very similar to what you said- I threw it on frozen, flipped after a few minutes, seasoned the defrosted side, flipped, etc.  It wasn't the best I have made but passable in a hurry! 



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I've done them that way too, just never started with a frozen wing.

    Great info!!!!   I am a bulk buyer so I rarely have anything fresh.  

     

    Hey anybody remember those "thaw plates from the early 90's"?

    I have something like that.  It works faster than just letting the food sit on a regular plate or cutting board.

    Tossing out of the bulk frozen bag onto the hot Egg is fast.....
