I get so many good ideas and great recipes from contributing Guest Chef, Mike “Pit Pirate” Hedrick and this is one more. He’s a continuing source of inspiration to those of us who enjoy using The Big Easy to prepare “fried” turkey, chicken and more. This recipe appeared first in a post on the Sizzle on the Grill Users Forum. Mike has his own unique way of describing his recipes and rather than change that for fear we’d loose his “voice” in it, we publish it here as close to the original form as possible.
Serve these Yardbird Wangs with your favorite dipping sauce. Some folks like hot sauce and some like cool sauce. S'all up to you friend! But take my advice - "When you eat these stand away from folks because they are so good you'll want to Slap Someone!"
- Chicken wings
- Get some oil to spritz on them
- Lemon Juice
- Favorite Wang Seasoning or Rub
- Place all of the 'wangs' on the bottom and accessory shelves in The Big Easy cooking basket - making sure there is adequate room between pieces so the infrared can hit them all.
- Before there was the Char-Broil EZ-Out Cooking Rack I made a couple by cutting down some wire cooling racks - but the new accessory is much better.
- Place the loaded cooking basket into the Big Easy and turn on HIGH and leave the lid on for at least 5-10 minutes. I love the sound of them even after just going in. The sound of chicken skin crackling and the smell is a lil piece of Heaven.

There is no specific amount of time that I can tell you to cook these. It will depend upon the outside air temp and a number of other factors...just realize you have to pay close attention the first couple of times you cook these, perhaps lifting the basket and using tongs to move the wangs around to ensure there is plenty of room for the 'infrared' to work it's magic.
Once you have done them a couple of times - you'll start to get what CB calls that "mental muscle memory" about what to do.
