Can't go Wrong with Wings

epl108epl108 Posts: 13
Had a few friends over yesterday to watch some football.  Wound up grilling a variety of food later in the afternoon, but started the day with a big (~85) batch of wings.  Cooked indirect at 375 or so using the 30-20-10 method.  About half got a BBQ sauce basting, 1/4 had a thick hot sauce, and 1/4 were left dry for the final 10 minutes.  All came out deliciously (aside from some of the wings around the edges which got scorched due to their location outside the protection of my deflector stone) and were eaten in one sitting, without even leftovers to enjoy for the later games.  Took every inch of the grid on my XL to fit the entire batch.

    Holy sh!t...sure you couldn’t squeeze a few more on that thing? Try Cazzy’s wings for a change from standard grilled wings.

    Will have to check out Cazzy's next time.  Appreciate the idea!
  • forgive my ignorance, but please tell me what the 30-20-10 method is.  I'm guessing 30 mins on 1 side, 20 mins on the other & 10 mins....for what?

  • No, no you cannot.  Yours look great.

    That last pic alone could sell a lot of XL's!  Just look at all that real estate.

    Great cook and pics.  Thanks for posting.  As you've probably figured out, you can do that many on the XL but the wings that are not in the silhouette of the plate setter will do better if they are rotated more frequently.  I switch them out with wings in the protected zone every 5 minutes or so when I'm paying attention and haven't had too many adult beverages... and don't get caught up in conversation... or prepping some other food... or greeting guests... or watching the game...

    So, yeah, I tend to burn a fair number of peripheral wings.

    Grill them indirect heat at 375f for 30 minutes, flip, 20 minutes, toss in sauce, 10 more minutes.

    Even after "the" picture I still cook wings direct raised @ 400. Just keep an eye on them.
