    I like high temps for wings. 425 indirect. 375 raised direct. No idea on timing. Just watch them.

  • You will love them regardless, assuming you don't go to sleep. Happy egging.

    Are you going direct or indirect?

  • 2 hours smoked finished off in the air fryer tossed in Franks Buffalo Sauce/whole stick unsalted melted butter. Pretty darn tasty. I will be doing these again

    Yeah I'm a fan of the higher heat indirect also. I flip about 25 mins each side and watch them after about 45 mins. So good!

    I think the air fryer finish negates the need for a higher initial cooking temp.

  • The wings were really good... I now have my AR  :D I will do them next time at a higher temp with the confidence of getting a crisp on the skin after the smoking is done. Thanks for the tips =)

    I don't know the clean-up necessary with the air-fryer but if I ever thought cooking wings would require more than one device I would walk away.  
    Experiment with indirect or raised direct and see where you land.  Give the search function here a look as wing threads are everywhere.  After several years of eggsperimentation I have landed on very raised direct running around 375 (+/-) on the dome.
    Key to crisp skin is a good 12-24 hour air dry in the fridge and/or dusting with corn starch before the cook.  Just one way to get there.
    BTW- welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.
    You will learn that there are about as many ways to achieve a great cook result as there are posters here.  FWIW-
