First Cook On The DT Code @WeberGrills Smokey Joe Gold -#ChickenWings and #AtomicBuffaloTurds

So when I picked up the Green DT Code OTP a couple of weeks ago the seller had a SJG that was dusty and sitting off in the corner of his garage. I made an offer and picked that up too. Finally got around to cleaning it up and decided to try a cook I’d normally do on a 22. Wanted to see how many chicken wings and ABTs I could get on a 13 inch SJ Grate. As it turns out, using a brick to separate the coals from the cooking area I got 5 wings and 4 ABTs.

Chicken wings throw a lot of fat which can make a mess of your kettle bowl.  I’ve started to line the bowl with aluminum foil, being sure not to cover the vents to make for an easy clean up.  I also wanted to get as many lit coals as I could into the Smokey Joe but wanted them banked to one side because we want a lot of high indirect heat.  If we place the chicken wings over the coals we’ll end up with burn skin (not good).

In this picture you can see how the brick keeps the coals on the left side of the kettle.  we will be placing the ABTs and Wings on the opposite side of the coals.

The wings were done internally but I put them directly over the coals for a couple minutes to crisp up the skin.

The Smokey Joe Gold is for sale for $20 if anyone wants it.  I already have a Smokey Joe.  They sell for $40 and this one is in great shape as you can see.
