Some wings last night

Went to the butcher yesterday and got some wings. He takes them off 5-7 lb birds so they are a nice size. Grilled raised direct, sauced with a blend of roasted garlic, butter and Franks.

    Kinda OT - You can post pics again? Awesome! How many cooks have we missed pictures of?

  • I should have taken either some grill shots or finished product shots but busted out some wings for the first time on my BGE at 325-350 for about 35-40 minutes, tossed them in a simple sauce of Franks, butter, honey, onion powder, garlic powder and the venerable black pepper and them threw them back on the grill to crispy-fy those suckers.  This is the tossing in the sauce stage.  They turned out freaking great.  I threw some Mesquite chunks in as well which may or may not have helped but the smoke flavor was prevalent even in the hot sauce. \

    I'd probably make the sauce a little less spicy for general tastes and probably smoke for less and crisp a little longer.  Still, pretty awesome for a first time.

    Yes I can. Carolina Q simplified the process for my little brain to handle. I can't copy and paste from photobucket anymore. You didn't miss any pics cause I stopped taking them. It seems to take forever when I am loading from "my pictures" so I guess I have to downsize the files.

    Estebanito, is it your interwebs? I was uploading 20MB files off of my T3i with only a bit slower speed than when I upload 3-4MB files from my phone. I realize I could downsize them to make the page easier to load for others, but meh, I'm a misanthrope.
  • It might be. We are in the boonies and can't get cable, we had satellite but it went out every time it snowed. DSL line now but it doesn't seem real quick.

    DSL is the answer.
  • I have DSL but it's possible that it didn't get reconnected properly the last time I cut it. I found the same thing at work though. After I select a pic it takes a good two or three minutes to be ready to insert it. I tried editing to smaller files and it was a bit quicker. I'll bring another (new) laptop at home tomorrow and try it.

  • Hi Steve. Maybe try hitting the "insert picture" button only once? Just trying to be helpful because that's what I do.

    Love, love the plating (all of them). White plate and colorful food. Yum. I tend to eat with my eyes but most of the time my mouth gets in the way! ;;)

  • Steve, looks great. In you pic they almost look a little crispy. Did you use a little corn starch for binding.

  • Yes, I put some rub and cornstarch in a bag and did the shake'n'bake thing. That is my usual method as is the raised direct cook. They turn out very crispy.

    I do this but with baking powder, which in effect, is cornstarch but is weakly alkaline so it promotes browning and crisping.

    Raised direct is the best for wings!  Nice looking wings LS!  I always add cornstarch too as I really prefer the texture it gives.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    I do 190-204 indirect or maybe 3.8 lower direct. See what I did there? Usually takes 45 minutes to 1 hour.

    Also, if you remember, let the wings sit 6 hours to overnight in the fridge uncovered. Really helps with the crispy factor and the final colour.

    I don't really pay attention but usually 350 - 400* for 45 minutes or so. I like to get the big wings so I can really cook them.
