Even though it was cold and extremely windy today I decided to do chicken wings. Have to split them into two batches, one on the grill for the wife, she only likes smoked ribs a couple times a year, and the smoked ones for me and the boys.
  This is why I got the 14.5 so I could do 9 wings with very little charcoal.  I didn't want to crowd the wings so I put 6 on the top rack and 3 on the bottom rack. This was my first cook with Wicked Good charcoal. I was surprised by the size of the chunks, some were almost brick sized, good for my 22.5 but too big for the14.5.
   With the heavy wind I double wrapped the 14.5, my normal 14.5 wrap is just the height of the WSM and sits on the cinder blocks that I have it sitting on, with the big wind it will come up under the insulation so I used my taller wrap to go around the cinder blocks and the WSM. This setup held a steady 325 the entire cook ( except when I took the picture right after putting on the wings, then it was still working back up to 325)
   I ran both set of wings in the WSM and the Silver B for almost the same time, the WSM 60 minutes and Silver B 45 minutes indirect (front and back burners)

I like chicken because I am cheap and so is it.  I was looking at a brisket at Costco and ouch on price.

The dark wings are the smoked ones.

Nice Looking Wings, Ben !!!

Don't look like enough if Hoss stops by!!!
