    the cook,
    There are many commercial rubs that making your own is a waste of time. Chose the one that suits your taste.[p]I smoke a 3 pound bag of "drummettes" each time I cook. I marinate them, in the bag they come in, overnight with a marinade of your choice. I smoke them at 225 for as long as it takes...usually 2 to 3 hours. Part of my family likes them burnt & the other half likes them cooked but no char.[p]Same with the "heat" can make them as mild or a degree of hot that suites your guests.[p]Good Luck[p]

  • Nessmuk,
    stick to basics, paprika, cayenne, salt, pepper, and a little sugar.

    Try the recipe for Chef RDs wings. It's more labor-intensive, but very good. I do mine on a raised grid, about 275-300, about an hour with flips. I cut corners last night and did a batch of wings with just oil and spice rub, raised grid, finishing with hot sauce and butter, but unfortunately, the temp got away from me and I had some scorched. HOWEVER, my forgiving family snarfed them up at an alarming rate, leaving no leftovers for lunch today. Dang.

  • the cook, I love bad byrons butt rub on my wings. cook for approx 1 hr at around 275, then apply bbq sauce of your liking and carmelize for 15-20 mins. My wife likes them without crust, I like them partially charred, so I take some off sooner than others. um um good. bad byrons has just enuff bite to make your lips tingle.

    Never had Butt Rub on poultry, will definately have to give it a try. It is one of my favorites on eggs though![p]~nikki

  • slicktop,
    thanks for your response, where can i get the recipe for bad byrons. thanks

  • the cook,
    thanks for everyone's help

  • Dude, you cook wings for 2-3 hours?? Those must be some crunchy lil' fellers at the end. You say some of the kin folks like 'em burnt up....I'm not sure wings would be recognizable after 3 hours. Please clarify how/why you cook 'em for 3 hours. Thanks.

    the cook,
    I got mine at the same place I got my BGE. I have included the link to their website. It has a page (Retailer's) where you can check to see who carries it in your state. [p]~nikki
