    I really like them cooked indirect at 375-400*. Little Steven suggested sneaking some corn starch in there to crisp them up... works really well.

    I usually toss them with a basic rub that I throw together.(paprika, onion, garlic, oregano, thyme, salt, pepper, on occasion brown sugar) and of course corn starch
    context is important :)

    lately its been wiseones georgia red wings cooked and dipped in a simple buffalo sauce of redhot, butter, tobasco, and chipotle, then a few more minutes on the grill. i like wings cooked raised direct at about 325 to 350. still playing with the recipe amounts but they are really flavorful. i like wings on the verge of being overcooked. would like to find a good cajun style marinade for the wings

    I cook mine as high in the dome as I can get them, coated with a little Dizzy Dust and some Raging River, no sauce

  • Good thought on the cornstarch. Think I'm gonna celebrate today's excellent weather by cooking some thai-inspired wings. A dusting of cornstarch along with a dry satay seasoning should do the trick.

    Hungry Celeste,

    It is almost impossible to avoid getting the starch too thick in places. Spray those with a little oil partway through the cook.

  • Ooph, I don't think I can pick a favorite; we eat a lot of wings. I can't even pick a cooking method as a favorite...if we have a lot of wings to cook, or plenty of time to do so, I do indirect, 400 degrees, about an hour. If wings were a last-minute decision, I do 400 degrees, raised direct, about 30 minutes.

    Our go-to quick 'n easy wings are t-rex inspired: a dash of tabasco, and a heavy sprinkling of lemon pepper.

    Other favorites are the awesome marmalade-sriracha wings, jerk wings, the list goes on and on.

    This recipe from Alton Brown. Substitute "Egg" for "oven" and they come out perfect.

    I'm a big fan of Georgia Red Wings, but marinaded for 72 hours and then hit with some DP Swamp Venom.

  • Greaat looking wings. I like my wings just like that. Do you mind giving your exact sauce receipe?

    I'm with some others as I like 375-400 indirect, and we like our wings quite well done, meat easily pulls clean from bone, so they're on for an hour/a few beers. Of course this is also due to the fact that we like skin as crispy as possible. Sometimes, the skin will actually make a 'snap' sound when eaten...and it's super thin. I've not had deep fried wings since I bought my Egg in May.

    Recently brined three batches of wings. Using a real simple brine from Adam Perry Lang's BBQ 25. Not gonna debate if brining wings is effective, but I will say that I've had taste testers in these 3 cooks with brined wings. They've all said they can tell a difference. I'm brining from here on out if time allows.

    I've been using Fred's Signore Bernardo Poultry Blend to season. We think its the very best we've tried so far and just can't stop using it on all our poultry. I'm sure its great on anything.

    Here is a cornstarch method for wings that was introduced to me right after getting my Egg. You do need to scroll down a bit to see the post with recipe.
    It's also very good!

    Forgot to say... My wings usually go 2.5 hours. I use sea salt, dp dizzy dust, a pecan rub & turbinado sugar.

    I made some tonight. I saw this a couple months ago on here and we love it. We liked it so much the kids and I cooked them at the Springfield eggfest a couple weeks ago.
    Mix 2/3 of bad byrons butt rub and 1/3 turbinado sugar. Cook raised direct 350-400 for 30-45 minutes. Sometimes I throw in a little cherry or apple wood. Finish off with some sweet baby rays.

    Rinse the wings well and pat dry with a paper towel. Let the wings rest on a grid in the fride for at least 6 hours, to be sure, that they are dry.

    Remove the wings from the fride and place it in a bowl. Add EVOO to the bowl and cover the wings well, turn and flip the winge in the EVOO bath for a few times.

    Add your favorit chicken rub. I love TexasBBQrub for chicken. Sucklebusters Hoochie Mama is also great. Or DP Jamaicen Firewalk.

    Prepare your egg for a indirect cook. PS, Stone or whatever. Cook @ 350 - 400 F for 40 minutes. Goal is a crispy skin. Ya can see it, if they are crisp.

    I love my wings dry. But it´s also possible to cover it with a sauce. Sucklebusters BBQ sauce is great. Or a Texas pepper jelly. Cherry habanero is also fine.

    here a dry one:


    and a sauced one:

  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 23,020
    half bottle franks redhot, half stick butter, maybe half tsp tobasco, then a 1/4 tsp chipotle powder. its hot enough that you need the blue cheese dressing

    I marinate my wings in Italian Dressing for an hour or so before cooking them. Then I coat with Southern Flavor Cajun Seasoning Cook direct around 400 degrees for around 20 or 30 mins depending on how done i want them, but the last 5 mins i baste them with Crystal buffalo wing sauce. These wings will have your tounge beating your eyebrows off of your head trying to get to them they are so good!!
