What's the high temp allowable on your smoker? I am guessing 300 to 325 for a smoking temp will give you the crisp skin on the wings. One more thing you might remember, if you'll wash and dry the wings the day before and leave unwraps in the fridge over night they will dehydrate some and a dry skin crisps easier.Im trying to perfect wings in my smoker. I've made wings good once but did not take notes on my pit temp etc so I can't repeat what I did. All I know is my last wings had bad skin. I don't want to have to use a second bbq if I don't need too.
On Gumbo… Just ate Gumbo Ya Ya at Mr B's tonight. Kick my gumbos A…. A little light on the rice though. But That roux must have been dark dark dark… Very rich
Course when ya also make a good pot of gumbo, its hard to remember the wings too!
Hmmmmmm............ Scar Belly Wing and Cajun smoked sausage gumbo?
I think the over night drying in the fridge will show you a huge difference. I have to be in a lot of trouble, a huge hurry to skip that step. Its as important as the smoke.
My smoker will get as hot as I need it. Next time Im going to make sure the wings are dry. They might not of been dry this last time. The one time I think I had perfect skin my smoker was 350. I wish I could make good wings at 250 degrees so I can cook other meats at the same time
LOL…. Can you imagine mr doing that! I did notify the waiter that the order was for comparison purposes. He asked "who won?" I replied "Who do you think?" LOL.
Did you tell 'em that you are currently mastering the Cajun cooking art of gumbo and ask to see the kitchen and meet the chef? Impress him and tell him you are making your own Andouille which is quite similar to Veron's in Gramercy. The chef will probably want to talk shop then. Chuckles... yeah I am full of it.
