Spinning Wings - the best

NDGNDG Posts: 2,170
I’m sorry to post this, but I after 3 cooks I can say with confidence that Rotisserie Wings are the best.  I bought the joetisserie thinking it would be cool & fun, but not expecting wing results significantly better, but they are.  Even low prep (partially frozen, dusted with corn starch & Voodoo rub) and an hour or so later had world class crispy smoked wings.  That is all.

    As they used to say on AOL - "me too".  Not sure I will ever do them any other way.

    I have the same basket.  All I do is dust with corn starch and let air dry in the fridge for a few hours.   As a comparison, the next run will be with the 50-hour wings.

    Nice. Did you have lump below or pushed to one side, temp?
    canuckland
  • Could not agree more.  We went from making wings once a month to pretty much once a week.  My wife has been hoarding wings like people were hoarding toilet paper.  She's got 28 lbs in the garage freezer for me to cook.

    The other thing to try in the basket that is so simple and so good is sausage and veggies.  I cut up smoked sausage and then throw in baby potatoes, green beans, and cut up peppers and onions.  Spin that at 400 till potatoes are done.  It is awesome.

    Do you thing the egg adds anything here, or is it primarily the use of a rotisserie?  Do you think rotisserie on a kettle would yield similar results?
    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    This sounds like something I do in a ci pan once in a while where everything gets some soak in nice sausage juice.  Better in rotisserie?

  • Never tried that, but everything crisps up nicely in the rotisserie without getting too charred.

    Y’all need to leave me alone with the rotisserie posts.  I really kind of want one.

    At first I thought it was a gimmick and not worth it, but I bought it in a moment of boredom during lockdown.  Haven't regretted it once, except maybe realizing now that when I build my permanent egging space I'm now going to have to run electrical to it.

    Couldn't agree more. You haven't had perfect wings till you've done this...

    Well, you inspired me!

    Dizzy Pig Spicy Dizzy Pig, in the fridge for a couple of hours.  Rotated at 325 - 400 for about an hour.  Sautéed Some Franks Wings sauce with honey and red pepper.  Finished wings in a bowl with the sauce and served.

    On a kettle it will yield very similar results. The same holds true for a drum smoker, WSM or various other grill/smokers. 
    Back in the 70’s these cheapos was extremely popular. However they produced excellent grub.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    I think it will produce excellent results on a kettle.  I use one on my hasty bake oven and get great results.
