Vortex wings: dust before or after cooking?
« on: May 13, 2018, 07:26:33 PM »
Friends:

Iíve been making wings with my vortex for about a year now and I finally looked at the instructions on the kosmos wing dust and I realize Iíve been cooking a LIE.

Kosmos says youíre supposed to put the dust on after cooking. Iíve been rubbing and then cooking.

Iím clearly going to have to try it both ways. Has anyone beat me to this and tried it both approaches?

I always season my wings before cooking...

You didnít do it wrong.

Kosmo said in the live chat that he cooks his wings without any seasoning whatsoever (no salt or pepper), then seasons them with his dust after he pulls them off.

He also said...many people season during the cook to achieve the flavor theyíre going for.

Try both ways and see which you prefer.

I ALWAYS season B4 the cook, then maybe a bit afterward with SnP.

I always do a dry brine of plain old kosher salt an hour or so before cooking. Then a SMALL amount of whatever rub right before they go on.
