Wing Recipe

I've been sitting here stealing all your ideas and recipes for a week or so now. I'd like to share a favorite of mine - I have had several people tell me these are the best wings they've had. I'll leave it to you eggsberts to convert this to the egg.

I deep fry the wings at 375 for 8 mins. without any rub or marinade. While they are frying I place a bottle of Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce in a zip lock baggie and add Tabasco Chipotle(sp?) to taste (I like about a quarter to a third of the bottle). Wings out of the fryer amd into the zip lock bag to coat. Into a 450 - 500 oven for 5 mins - out of the oven and back into the bag (contamination not a worry since wings weren't raw) for another coating. Back into the oven for another 5 mins and you're good to go. This method keeps wings moister than just baking and has better flavor than marinating and frying and I like the baked on sauce better than a "naked" sauce. But all of this is simply personal preferences. Thought there might be someone out there like me!

I don't see why an egg set up with a platesetter at the same temps wouldn't work just as well and would add flavor. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

    You are correct my friend. Ive been using Franks for about 5 years so far and Im still lovin it. Never put it on the egg. I been putting john henrys pecan rub on my wings and they been turning out great. More of a bar-b-q wing though. Not hot. Later
  • Franks is good, but you guys need to try the sauce that Suck Creek Wings makes, it's some of the best I've ever had. Check out their webiste.

    Is the Suck Creek Wings a true hot sauce or more of a BBQ Sauce?

  • I think its a sauce they developed strictly for wings. Kind of like Frank's Red Hot, but with a little more kick. I like hot and spicy, and they can "build" a sauce for you to your taste. I wouldn't use it as a BBQ sauce, but that's just me. Like I said earlier, it does make for great wings.

    That is almost exactly how I do wings, except I skip the frying part.

    I cook them indirect at 375-400 for about 45 minutes, toss them in a bowl with sauce, back on the grid for 10 minutes or so to set the sauce, one more toss in the sauce, then onto the plate and into my belly.

    Thanks and sold. For wings I prefer a hot sauce over BBQ sauce.

    Have you ever tried the original?

    Good stuff - the "suicidal" will hurt you. I do the original and it has plenty of heat.

    Wow - those do look really good. Try the deep frying for 8 mins next time. It really does make a difference in my opinion.
