The wings finished 1st. Placed the 10 pounds I soaked In franks with melted butter and the rest in a couple full pans. My MIL was over and wanted a few wings with just salt and pepper do to food allergies.

Took the thighs off at 170-180ish as they were going to about 60 elderly without family and the rest to feed residentially challenged. Don’t want them getting sick.

Got everything panned and made deliveries. Man were people happy. It was a long day but well worth it. Our kids helped and ate some wings and one Tri tip. They liked them.

Wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Hope to relax tomorrow.

Thank you. The women’s shelter made me take a photo with them around the food and then in front of the tree. I hadn’t planned for that lol
 
Good on you for helping folks out man! All the food looks fantastic. The only thing that would have made it better is my Nuclear Nectar instead Mikes 😆 Merry Christmas
