Buffalo Chicken WWIngs--Direct or Inderect?

I'm about to cook some "buffalo" style chicken wings & have forgotten whether to use direct or indirect heat, or does it matter?

    I do them direct, but experiment and draw your own conclusions. Personal preferences are what counts.

    JJ, I normally do mine indirect but today I did a lot (160) and they just were not getting done trying to do them indirect even after an hour at 300. Or should I say, they were not getting brown. I wound up having to start another egg and throw them on direct for about ten minutes to get them to crisp up. They were good but double cooking was a pain! Next time I do them indirect, I'll make sure I'm not trying to do too many.

    I've done them both ways. If you go direct, keep the heat/fire damn low if you can...around 200-225, to keep them from burning black (even with a lot of turning)---and if you go indirect, 300-325 will get the job done in 40-45 minutes. Or so I's been awhile as I got burned out on them and haven't cooked some up in 3-4 months. Bon Eggetit! Think I'm ready for some now, though!
