    Early on in my travels round this site I ran across S2K9K's Scarbelly, (Buffalo style smoked), wing recipe.

    Bookmarked it for the future and the future came around today.

    Made up the injection.  Creole butter,  (Had to google it),  Put some Tony Catcheries Creole seasoning and Garlic powder in butter, melted it and added 200% the butter quantity in Franks Red Hot wing sauce.  (3 Tablespoons butter, 6 Franks, and about 1 & 1/2 teaspoons Catcheries, and 3/4 teaspoon Garlic powder).

    I had gotten a small package of wings at the grocery in anticipation of trying this recipe.  I got some thigh's,  (My personal favorite chicken part), for another recipe but decided to go ahead and inject the thigh's along with the wings.

    Injected wings and thighs.

    Slathered the rest of the injection sauce to the outside of the chicken parts.

    Good old Weber kettle prepped and ready.  Chicken loaded up, therm probe in a thigh, another probe on the grate.

    IT is about 140*.  Time to flip them.


    Buddy is guarding the Weber and getting "slobbery".

    Ready to come off the grill

    Now I am getting slobbery

    Chow time!  Plated up with a bit of raw Broccoli, baby carrots, Ranch dressing for the veg's on the side, and a couple slices off the butt end of the last loaf of Rollers Amish White that i baked a couple weeks back.  (Buddy's treats in the background).

    Rollers Amish White sandwich bread.  (Good stuff, good recipe).

    Moist chicken.  Money shot.  [​IMG]

    I liked this recipe a lot and will make it again.  I will use something other than the Catcheries to season the outside of the chicken with as it was a little too salty.  (I don't usually add salt to anything after it is cooked).  The salt didn't keep me from eating too much of these wings and thighs.  They really were memorable.

    Thanks to S2K9K for the recipe and thanks to all y'all for checking out the thread.

    Hey Case.  I read your post on the addition of Blue Cheese to the wings and would like to try it but, like you, I don't have room for a blender / processor either so I went with the original recipe.

    Thanks for looking and commenting.

    Since the first batch with blue cheese I have made them again and used creamy blue cheese dressing. Works great and tastes just like the first batch.

    Thanks for the tip.  I had wondered about using dressing.  Glad to know that it will work.

    Thanks for the kind comment Bama.  I believe that Scarbelly was gone before I got here, but I have read several posts where folks mention him.
