Nothing gets the appetite working like flames


The Vortex is a great bit of kit to have. I have a couple of Kettle Kones that are made by a small company here in Australia.


There is something mesmerizing about this image.


The final product, plus some Jalapeno Poppers to go along with the wings.







Crispy chicken wings on the Weber, using a Vortex (or similar)


Ingredients:
3kg of chicken wings (drummet’s and or wingette’s)
4 tablespoons of paprika
2 tablespoons of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of onion powder
2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons of Master foods Moroccan Seasoning
1 teaspoon of sea salt crushed
½ a teaspoon of black pepper freshly ground


Directions:
1. Mix all dry ingredients and cover all of the wings. Place them back in the fridge for an hour or so before cooking them.

2. Get a full chimney of hot coals up to temperature and place in the Vortex (or similar) and place some wood for smoke over the coals.

3. Place wings on outer circle of Weber cooking grate, keeping about an inch or two free from the Vortex.

4. Put the lid on and let the wings cook for an hour.






Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce


Ingredients:
75 grams of Costello’s Blue Cheese roughly chopped
¼ of a cup of mayonnaise
¼ of a cup of sour cream
1 clove of crushed garlic
1 tablespoon of lemon juice


Directions:
1. Place in blender and blend until smooth.

2. Chill in fridge before use.




These wings come out super crunchy on the outside and so moist inside. I cannot make enough of these when people come over.

Looks delicious! Every recipe I read on this site is always what I plan to try next lol. Looks like I'll need to get more grills to make them all at the same time ::)
Together we'll fight the long defeat.

....look delicious!

Might have to try your recipe on full sized chicken pieces - as I'm always looking at a way of making the skins go all crispy!

Funnily enough, I've never even thought about trying it on larger pieces. Hmmm, I feel a whole roast chicken is getting cooked this weekend :)

Do you leave your vents fully open or adjust temp to about 325° or so?
