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 (drummetís and or wingetteís)
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
Ĺ 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 Costelloís Blue Cheese roughly chopped
ľ of a cup of mayonnaise
ľ 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.
Do you leave your vents fully open or adjust temp to about 325į or so?

I just leave the vents fully open, walk away and come back an hour later @Joetee ;)
It wasn't me......Well maybe it was..

....I tried this over the weekend - ok, the recipe wasn't 100% exactly the same.

 I used some shop bought 'Smokey Texan BBQ Powder' which already had the paprika, onion, garlic and pepper powder all mixed together!



.....but I still wasn't able to get the skins on the chicken pieces to go crispy?! I'm cooking them at a temp of around 250C - do they need to be cooked hotter to get the skins to go crispy?!

Did you brush olive oil on the skins before applying the seasoning?  The oil helps crisp the she skin.

Chicken looks great! Those bacon-wrapped jalapenos though--oh, man!

I ran out of olive oil one time so I put the chicken pieces on the grill then sprayed them with PAM. Itís now my go to method. Try it some time.

Pam sounds interesting,will have to try it. I usually toss my wings in canola oil in a stainless steel mixing bowl. After they have cooked awhile I brush what ever sauce Iím using on them

I like it. Nice crispy skin, no mess tossing in or brushing on oil. Just spray and close the lid.

I haven't had a problem with getting crunchy skin. I have other recipes where I use olive oil. I know each kettle I own holds temps differently, due to the seal of the lid.
