    Picked up a 5 pound bag yesterday, thawed over night and seasoned them with Con Yeager Wing Dust and some Smokey BBQ seasoning, left sit for about 45 minutes to warm up a bit, and then onto the RT at 190 for a while, lost track of time working on lawn tractor, took the temp of a few of them and they were in the 130's so turned the grill to 265 and put some BBQ sauce the GF doctored up on a few of them for her. cooked about 20 more minutes. Temps were now in the 170-180 range.

    Very good wing this time, my first time wasn't so good but the wing quality was bad. These actually came out very close to what i was looking for, the skin wasn't crisp not really bite through, but the taste and texture and clean from the bone were very good. Some experimenting and I will get the chicken coming out the way i want it to.

    Used the Rec Tec pellet grill for these.

    Looks great! Bet they were tasty!

    In order to get the skin crisped up you really need to get your temps above 300º and preferably above 325º. I tens to run mine 325º-350º. I have also found that saucing the wings will lead to the skin not being as crisp. The injected wings that I do crisp up better than the sauced ones.
     
  4. Quick tip on getting skin crisp.

    If you have a gas grill, turn it on high, with lid up cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes each side.
