Title: Trying for first time
Post by: AllDayFoodie on September 05, 2014, 09:01:38 pm
Hello all, new to the Bradley, just got it and seasoned it. I am going to start tomorrow with a simple batch of wings then move to a prime rib on Sunday. I've heard from family (that don't have smokers) that wings can come out rubbery. Any suggestions? I'm thinking about doing a simple salt pepper and garlic rub then smoking around 200 for about 1-2 hours then finishing in a sauce in the oven to broil until crisp.... It's my first time

Sounds like a good plan to me, as long as the chicken gets done.  I smoke my wings on a higher temp for two hours, then I crisp 'em up on a hot grill (500* or so) for about 3 or 4 minutes.  I set the Bradley for 270*, but it usually doesn't get up that high for long.  Your plan sounds fine though.  You want to make sure the juices run clear (instead of red) before you serve them, but I don't really know how long they'll be in the broiler, or how high the internal temp will get in there.   

What kind of sauce are you puttin' on 'em?   And what kind of wood?   I use apple wood for chicken. 

At my house, before we smoke them, we just slather the wings in olive oil, sprinkle on a bunch of Tony Chachere's Creole... and that's it.  (The Chachere's has plenty of salt in it).   For me, there ain't no better wing anywhere.

Awesome I'll try that. I was shooting in the dark with the 200 but I'll do it higher now. I'm using apple wood and I'll probably do a simple butter hot sauce type sauce. I need to get some of that creole seasoning I've never used it but have been wanting to. Hope they turn out good ill post some pics!

Hi AllDayFoodie;

Welcome to the forum.

If you are uploading from a computer, the below link may be helpful. It will instruct you through how to set up an account on photobucket, with some useful information on how to organize your account. If you already have a photo hosting website skip down to section #3.

If your sauce is heavy in sugar, and you added it right at the beginning that may have cause it to char, but some char is good.

Yea I think there was sugar in it, I ended up getting a pound of wings from whole foods that were pre marinaded.

Looks real nice!  Wish I had some of those wings about now.  Can't wait to see the PR when it's done.  Good job!

What was your smoking/cooking temperatures on those wings and how many total hours were they in the smoker?
