Don't you hate people who decide to make a recipe 3 hours from now and ask for help! Here I am.[p]I want to grill chicken wings on the Egg and I remember a post about cornstarch making the skin crispy. Can someone give me a recipe and method? [p]Thanks, Catherine

    I put the rub on and let it marinate in a ziplock in the fridge. When I'm ready to cook them I shake a light coating of cornstarch on them and cook indirect at 350 dome temp for one to one and a half hours turning once or twice. -RP

    <p />Hey Catherine, if you haven't tried ChefRD's recipe, you really need to.... that recipe makes the best wings I've ever had and it's the only way WooKitties lets me do them now.... in fact I'll be doing a batch this weekend.
    They're crunchy and like NB says, "almost fried".[p]John

    Man, all the wings I eat and all the years I've looked at this recipe... I've yet to try it. No good reason behind it, I just forget.
    Not this time... this weekend for sure.
    Thanks for the reminder...

    I note that the recipe calls for "1.2 cup milk". Did they mean "1/2" or something else? Just wondering what you used.

  • WooDoggiesWooDoggies Posts: 2,390
    Rib-Rob,[p]I never noticed that. I use 1 1/2 cups of milk for this recipe but you might have to adjust according to the size of your wings. Give it a go... these are worth it.[p]john

    wardster, you will not be disappointed... and they are as good without sauce as with. [p]john

    Ended up using my favorite rub and the cornstarch. Even though I let the temp get a little out of control the wings turned out great. [p]Woo, I'll try the recipe you recommended but as luck would have it I used my last two eggs today for egg salad :). [p]Catherine
  • Rib-Rob,[p]A fellow could go back to the orginal recipe to see what the author intended. This is really a killer recipe and good on all poultry.

    <p />Q-Scoop,
    Don't have exact portions but about 50% more cornstarch than rub.
