Howdy fellas and non fellas. School started back Monday. My 4 kids go to a small private Christian school. 380 kids k-12. Wife teaches there. 3 days into school oldest daughter's best friend tested positive for covid. That was Wednesday. They sent the 9th grade home for remainder of week. Thursday notified by health department that daughter was restricted from school due to close contact of friend. She woke up sick that morning. After reporting symptoms to school they sent wife and other 3 kids home. Later that day I became sick. Friday morning we got tested. By then me, daughter, wife are all sick.....and I mean sick. Worst sore throat ever. Blasting headache, tired, and swollen lympnodes on armpits and groins. 4 other kids from class showing same symptoms. We haven't got our results back yet but as Forrest Gump once said "I'm not a smart man" .We have covid......didn't feel well enough to cook but had 7lbs of wings thawed and unless I'm dead I'm not gonna throw them away.

Parted out the whole wings and tossed in Holy Voodoo rub

After an hour I bumped heat to 250 and sprayed with beer every 15 minutes for another hour. Then bumped heat to 300 for 30 minutes to get crispy

2.5hr total I had super crispy skin and juicy wings. Best I've ever done honestly

Deliciousness! Even though I can barely swallow.

Had some tomahawks thawing in the fridge for tomorrow but ended up putting back in deep freeze. I've felt worse everyday since getting sick and I figure I'm not gonna feel like cooking again tomorrow. Be safe folks

Jake first God bless you and your family our prayers are with you. I am afraid the nationwide prevalent return to school is going to make the first wave look like a minor blip of infections. Hope I’m wrong but to me it seems to set up the perfect storm. The wings looks great. I’m sure you won’t feel like cooking for a bit but please do stop in and let us know how you all are doing.

Jake, so sorry to hear you're all sick. Praying for a speedy recovery. Hopefully when you get the results, it won't be Covid. This thing is the worst thing I've ever seen. And it's making more and more people crazy and defiant. But let me step off my soapbox. Those wings look incredible and perfect! I completely understand you being able to eat them even though you are sick. They look too good to pass up under any circumstances. Stay strong and keep us posted on your condition.

Hope ALL feel better soon! Kudos on firing the Wings. I am a totally helpless Baby when I'm sick. Those wings would have been made into a big pot of Chicken Soup here...JJ

Sorry that y'all got the plague and wishing speedy bounce back.

Those are great looking wings! I'm a certified wing nut. I do about the same. Smoke 'em low and slow, then finish with heat to crisp up the skin.
