    I soaked these wings in Key West lime juice overnight with some dried rosemary and tarragon. Next day I drained off the lime juice and coated them in olive oil and tossed them on my electric UDS with apple and oak for 1 ½ hours at 200* then finished them off in some hot oil to crisp them up. I  don’t eat the skin but was hungry and wanted to get em done. I just saved the skin for stock along with the wing tips. This company has all kind of juices like lime and mango……Anyway’s they came out juicy and limey and I’m gonna keep a bottle or three around for sure. Bear, that last pic is for you. [​IMG]  Enjoy everyone.

  5. Yes sir! Great job Meateater! Key Lime does have a distinct flavor, I dig anything citrus though. The Bear-View pic is awesome.

    Dam!  Another wing smoke!  Good thing my other half doesn't see this, cause she loves wings.  Now I have another project.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Wings look great! I use that stuff for margaritas when I can't get fresh Key limes. I miss the Keys. When it comes to wings, in the DC area we like our wings Old Bay & Lime style. Cook the wings the way you like then toss them in lime juice to coat then sprinkle Old Bay all over it. So good, unless you don't like Old Bay.

    Nice looking wings.  Question for you:  second pic down in your initial post:  Are those "round" stacking grids?  Now those would be handy, especially if you're smoking in the round (UDS, WSM, etc).
  17. man those are good lookin wing I need to make some haven't had wings in a while lol

    I wish I would thought about some fresh garlic, that will be the next batch! Dave those are cooling racks that I picked up at a restaurat supply. They come in different sizes. I have a 15" for my electric UDS 30 gallon and a 18" for my charcoal UDS 55 gallon. The legs fold and are great for jerky and wings or whatever. Heres a link I found at Amazon this looks like the same ones I have. The plating does come off after a few times, I just hand wash them with a scrubbing pad and air dry them, before I use them I scrub them again dry with a paper towel and rub a little oil on them. 

    Heres a better link I found, there also called steaming racks. This place has a bunch of sizes and cheap.
