Buffalo, BBQ and Lemon Pepper Wings
Buffalo, BBQ and Lemon Pepper Wings


Buffalo, BBQ and Lemon Pepper Wings!!! We wanted wings this week and we both wanted something different. (As Usual) I like them on the “Zippy Side”, Patti likes them more on the “Savory Side”. I love Lemon Pepper Chicken so we did a batch of wings that way, too.

Putting our new Green Mountain Prime to the test we did a cook loading it up with Bull Racks and wings. We did these at 400* (205c) for an hour with a Wedgie for that “Kiss of Smoke”. Perfect…

Still have some leftovers, but already want to do more. Thinking some Buffalo ribs soon!

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Cooking Directions: Buffalo Sauce 

Mix both bottles of the Louisiana sauce with the garlic, onion, pepper and a stick of butter into a sauce pan. Simmer for 5 minutes or so to blend the seasoning and melt the butter. I always divide this into two bowls: 1 for sauce while cooking and then one for dipping while eating.

Marinate the Lemon Pepper Wings Overnight

 

Cooking Directions: Buffalo, BBQ and Lemon Pepper Wings 

We seasoned about 2 pounds of wings with the Briggs Citrus Pepper seasoning and marinated it overnight in the Goya Mojo Criollo Marinade.

Preheat the grill to 400* (205c) and light your Wedgie for that “Kiss of Smoke”. Keep in mind when you are cooking on 250* (121c) you have little or no smoke, just cooking heat.

When you are ready pat your wings dry, spray your Bull Rack trays with a cooking spray for easy clean up (we used duck fat). I cut the wing tips off these to see how I liked them that way. I think in the future I’ll always cut the tips off. Place the wings on the tray, dust with your Citrus Pepper seasoning and place the tray into the Bull Rack.

Load up another Bull Rack tray with the next batch of wings and season them with the Texas seasoning and place them in the Bull Rack.

Load up the last tray with your wings and season them with the Cajun Seasoning and place it into the Bull Rack and into the grill.

The Cajun Wings


I rotated my Bull Racks about every 15 minutes so they would brown more evenly. The third time I rotated my racks I sauced them. The wings with the Cajun seasoning I sauced with my Buffalo sauce, the wings with the Texas seasoning. I sauced them with the Bourbon Bacon BBQ Sauce.

Put them back into the grill for about 15 minutes to caramelize the sauce. I like chicken best around 170* (77c) because it flakes apart easier. When the meat reaches an internal temperature around 170* (77c) it’s time to eat!!!

U.S.D.A. safe is 165* (73c). Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What you Love,
Ken & Patti
