Lemon pepper chicken wings
« on: April 29, 2020, 04:27:31 AM »
Iíve been making my own lemon-pepper seasoning because itís so easy, simply grate the skin and pith of a lemon and dehydrate with freshly ground pepper in either the oven on parchment paper, or in a skillet on the stove.  I opt for the latter method as I have more control and can better monitor the progress.  Once all the moisture evaporated, I add salt and a little bit of granulated garlic. 

The wings were wet-brined for a few hours and then patted dry on a rack before seasoning, and then left to dry brine for another hour or so before going direct on top of an elevated half grate about 5 minutes per slide. Then I rotated them around to indirect and covered for another 20 minutes.  Seasoning was good, but I think I will stick with cooking Hoosier-style wings going forward.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

I love lemon pepper, and homemade is even better with much more flavor than store bought

Looks great. That seasoning sounds incredible and I still have yet to try bringing anything. Both on the to do list now. Love that color change.

I use lemon pepper seasoning a lot on Salmon, but I haven't ever thought of making it myself or doing wings with it.
Now I want to.
Thanks for posting this Charlie.
