    What is your target temp for cooking children?  And if mine are more ferral would I adjust up or down?
    If you leave them in the fridge overnight it crisps the skin up.
  • Re: chicken wing recipes

    If you like buffalo style wings I have mastered a recipe that will knock your socks off.

    Season rinsed and dried wings with your favorite cajun rub and a little garlic powder and onion powder. Add some dashes of Louisiana hot sauce, I like Frank's. Set aside for at least an hour and let sit. 

    Fire up egg to 300-350, I go platesetter legs up/indirect. Toss on the wings and brush or spray on Canola oil. Cook for 30-45 minutes, careful about hotspots and then flip wings. Apply Canola oil again and cook another 30-45 minutes or until desired doneness.

    Meanwhile, simmer the remaining Louisiana hotsauce in a saucepan with 1 large bottle of the sauce, a generous dash of garlic powder, onion powder, cracked black pepper and red pepper flakes. Add a chunk of butter (bout a quarter stick) and add about a tablespoon of honey, or more to taste. Let simmer.

    Now pull your wings off the egg and place in large bowl. After your sauce has simmered, poor over the wings and toss, saving some sauce. 

    Now remove the platesetter and throw the sauced wings back on for a couple minutes, turning frequently. They will get nice char on them. Pull them off,  and toss them in the remaining sauce. Serve with blue cheese dressing and a cold beer.

    Be prepared to make them again because everyone will love them. They are spicy though but the more honey you add to the sauce the milder they become.

    The most useful advise I could have received as a new egg owner:

    Take your time letting the egg come to your desired temp, let all the creosote burn off and wait until that dome temp is nice and steady at your desired temp before putting your meat on. 

    I'd say 90% of new egg disasters are related to this....

  • Re: Eggfest discount details

    At Orlando's first annual eggfest is where I purchased my beloved egg.

    It was: LBGE, Nest, Platesetter, ash tool, Bag of Lump, Starter cubes and two free tickets for admission = $750 plus tax.

    Sadly due to work, I was unable to attend the fest. I prepaid for everything and I picked up my egg bundle at the local Ace Hardware store at my convenience a few days after the fest ended.

    It was the happiest day of my life.
