This is how I set up my charcoal Weber Go-Anywhere for high heat indirect cooking. Here we cook a full package of chicken wings offset the coals using tin foil and a foil tray to catch the drippings.

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.
Done. Plated on my finest china.
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.
It’s hard to put into words how good Kate’s chicken pot pie is, especially after giving it the smoke for an hour and a half.
Set Up A Full chimney of blazing coals in the charcoal baskets in the center of the Performer with a handful of cherry wood chips. Opened teh vents wide and let ‘er rip for about 35 minutes.
Wings dusted with Paul Prudhome Blackened rub.
Dusted with some Lowry’s Chipolte Cinnamon Rub and then cooked indirect high heat on the Weber SS performer for about 40 minutes, coating with Sweet Baby ray’s BBQ Sauce ten minutes before pulling them off. They didn’t suck.
Sometime I like sweet and sticky, sometimes I like crispy and spicy. Today was sweet and sticky obvi
