    Nothing special again witht he photos. Its not often I remember my camera. I wanted to do a trial run with high heat. Still crisped them in the oven. I finished doing 50 racks of ribs in 2 doses yesterday. The hardest part is setting up the coals the way i was shown. Very tedious in 3's. Even loading the things with ribs is a frickin nightmare hee hee. But its great to be able to serve these old folks at the community kick *** ribs.
    I did a trial run yesterday with a beefy short rib (just 1) after the ribs came off I still had some heat, happened to have them in front of me cause i was preppeing for something else. Anyway when i sealed the kits up I stupidly sealed the drip hole on the bottoms and am having fun accumulating quite the pool of grease.

    Unfortunately these wings were brined for the better part of 2 days. I thought I had a sherriffs party on the 10th but its next month. Woops. Employee meal is born.

    No, you don't have to brine any chicken if you don't want to. Some parts can benefit from a brine, others it won't make much difference. It's all a matter of taste.. When cooking a whole chicken I love to brine.. Chic thighs I don't, they have enough fat. Wings I'll marinade sometimes if I want a different flavor, but its not needed.. I'm sure you'll get some other opinions on this.

    Brining certainly comes at a cost I think. It does change the chicken and gives it more of a hammyness which isnt all bad. With all that it pays back with super moistness especially the dreaded white meat.

    i love to finish mine in a saute pan.
    i'm not sure i would saute them if i were doing that many of them, but i love the way the skin crisps up when i do that.

    i sometimes marinate my wings and sometimes i don't bother.

    Wow... those wings look awesome!!! Now all you need is some Bud Light on tap and some girls with short shorts wearing tight t-shirts depicting an owl. [​IMG]
