    Scott, I have to cook 10 lbs. of wings tomorrow and I've never made them before. I have whole wings and I see you just have the drumettes.

    Couple of questions anyway:

    Do you cut off the pointy tips and discard them?

    Do you cut them up before cooking, or do it after they're cooked? Does it make any difference?

    Any help appreciated.

    I kid around and say that the wings are 3 parts, the "wingette", drumette", and "chunk it" (the tip).

    But you can save the wing tips to make a home made stock if you do that kind of thing.

    Thanks, Chris. I linked over to your website and see there are some wing recipes there. I'll take a look at them.

  • My local grocery, Publix, sells the drumettes as you see them. When they have enough for my cook, I use them. When they don't, I use whole wings but cut the tips off.

    Wings are really resilient to temps. I like them to be 180 to 190 degrees. They pull off the bone great at these temps. You can't hurt them at 195 even!

    Spray them with Pam or something to get the spices to stick.

    I really like fruitwoods on wings. But, if not available, a small amount of hardwoods is key. Bottom line, smoke them some.

    You can finish them by brushing them with wing sauce, or nothing at all.
    Good luck. They will be great, Scott

    Nice cook. :woohoo:
    Is Baby Rays Wing sauce sweet or hot. Saw it at Don's market when I was picking up spices. Didn't buy any though.

  • It's mild. Frank's is hotter.

    Remember if you cut the Franks with a little Butter you get the flavor without all the heat!!! :evil:

  • Thanks! They improved my stomach's disposition!
  • How many did you start with and how many did you snag before the pic!
    Wings are kinda like fries......"no one will miss this one" :whistle:

    Special occasion or just a craving?

  • My 17 year old son and his buddy "ordered" them about 7 last night. I ran out and got them and complied! Sounded like a good idea for everyone.

    I started and finished with 40. Stellar restraint, if I may say so? Scott

  • Scott-they look awesome! I don't cook wings often so could you tell me how long you cooked these and what temp? I think I did them at like 350 on a raised grid, but I don't remember. I seem to recall they took about an hour, but again I'm not sure.
