    Yes, the grocery store where I go to sells packages of full wings, just flats, or just drumettes.
  • Wing wing


    Made some chicken wings in two flavors, Buffalo and BBQ, for tonight's dinner.  SWMBO and the kiddos prefer the wing flats more than the drummettes.  Wings are always a hit here.

    Cooked them indirect on the Adjustable Rig at about 375-400 degrees.  Flipped the wings after 15 minutes, sauced the buffalo ones 15 minutes after that, and let them finished off for another 5-10 minutes.  Total cooktime was 40-45 minutes.

    The R&B combo comes with a metal oval ring. You wrap HD foil on the ring and it turns to an oval drip pan. You can the place on top of the oval stone or try to elevate it somehow if you want.

    I just ordered my R&B combo about 3 or 4 months ago and I didn't get the metal oval ring. I did see it offered separately. I just wrap the oval stone in foil and let it rock.
    Now that I think about it, the foil ring may not have been included in the combo, but made sense to me at the time to get it. I also foil the stone as a back up.
  • Re: Moving an XL

    Remove the innards (fire ring, bowl, etc) and use a pot-lifter. Makes moving eggs much easier.
  • My first cook!


    Been a lurker here for a while; I got  a new large BGE and adjustable rig and did my first cook on it (sorry, no pics this time) today. Did a basic cook and cooked chicken drumsticks, sausage, and beef fajita skirt steak. Cooked raised direct in the 400-500 F range. Slowly built up the heat,though one time left the dome up a bit too long, and it spiked to 600 but i was able to control it back down. Very efficient with the charcoal (free bag of Ozark Oak from dealer).

    Got big time compliments on the chicken and the fact that I didn't smell all sooty-smokey afterwards. i think I'm in love.
