How many wings will fit in a 26?

My setup will be either the regular SnS v1 or the XL Marty Basket with one fully lit chimney. I remember seeing a picture of someone 26 packed with wings with 90ish wings but I don't remember where.

Charcoal baskets pushed to the center you can fit a ton.

A whole bunch depending on the size of your wings, Tami prefers the smaller ones so I have had close to 90 using the vortex and or 2 baskets in the center
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

The size of wing makes a difference. These are jumbo wings from gfs. I think there is 32 in half of the grate. I havenít been using baskets lately. I get the coals going good and the 26 likes to cruise at 425. I flip after 20 minutes or so then leave the lid cracked for another 20 minutes. It picks up the temp to 500ish or more. Then I toss in a little sauce and put back in the indirect side to finish up in extreme heat for a few minutes.

This is just what Iím doing lately. Iím constantly experimenting with wing cooks since Iím usually making them once a week.

Thanks all for the tips! Now I'm reconsidering my approach. I guess I'll just have to make wings multiple times  [emoji16] I'll post a new thread after I do the cook this weekend
