I really wasn’t planning on putting up a new post tonight. We were just going to grill up some buffalo wings and cook some baked taters for supper…pretty routine for a Sunday evening.
A couple of weeks ago I’d noticed a post about Spicy Ranch Wings on Griffin’s Grub, a Big Green Egg blog by Jason Griffin. Connie and I both thought they sounded good and that we should give them a try sometime. Its been a while since we’ve grilled wings on the Egg and I made an executive decision that this weekend would be a good time to do it.
Connie picked up a big bag of wings at the store Saturday and we set a couple dozen out to thaw overnight. I made up the marinade per Jason’s instructions this morning, poured it over the wings and set back them in the fridge for the day.
Once time to cook I drifted from Jason’s instructions a bit. He cooked his wings direct on a raised grid. I cooked mine indirect over a plate setter with the legs up and grid on top of the legs. I have a bit better luck not burning wings by cooking them indirect.
Anyway…here are a few pics of the process…
Just gettin’ started here. Notice the ranch mix powder on the wings?
So what was the verdict? Like I said before, I didn’t intend to put up a blog post tonight but these wings were good and I mean darn good. The ranch powder added a nice tangy twist to the flavor and they definitely made our ‘do again’ list. Thanks for a winner Jason!
