Why Wings?

Because they are great!! I have had my egg for nearly 3 years, and this was the first time I cooked "just wings"

S&P, BGE Green Pecan Seasoning, and a chunk of sugar cane.

Trying to let them cool so i will stop burning my tongue!!


A few that didn't get away


Did them about 25 - 30 minutes both sides, but I think around 20 - 25 minutes per side would have been plenty. All in all a great, quick weekday cook.

    Looks great. Sugarcane for smoke... genius. I bet that adds some great flavor. Silly ?...where do you get sugarcane?

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I picked up a stalk at the farmers market, cut it up into pieces and stuck them in the freezer. Then pull out what I need. Makes for a sweet smelling smoke, I stole the idea from someone here on the forum, but I don't remember the victim's name.

    Nice looking cook.

    Wings are one of my family's favorites. One of mine too, easy, cheap and good!

    There is no stealing - just sharing :)

    I use sugar cane on poultry all the time. You are the first person I have seen using sugar cane - pretty good ain't it. :)

    Cooked some sugar cane wings with Hoochie Mama at this year's Oklahoma City Fest and at the Texas Eggfest

    Light smoke

    I cut them into 6-8" pieces (basically at the nodes) then split and store in the freezer.

    All this talk of sugar cane makes me think it might be a Mojito night. While I cook on the egg of course. :)

    I love doing wings on the egg. We don't cook them any other way.
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!
  • Love my wings off the egg ... dry rub, never tossed in sauce. Usually people are shocked because they've never had sauceless wings. Mmmm ... now I want wings!
