Yardbird Wangs on the Big Easy

I was in the mood for some wangs but didn't know if the Big Easy would work so I tried a small batch of wangs.

Cleaned and cut the wangs.

Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and salt and pepper and some wang rub ole JB done sent me.

Used 1 wire and 1 stainless steel racks for the wangs. They did want to stick a lil more to SS rack so I will oil it before use next time.

Dropped them into a cold cooker, turned the knob to it's 1 and only setting and hit the ignitor and woof she was rolling.

In about 15 minutes they were looking like this.

Looks great Mike! I had to look up the Big Easy. This forum always keeps me adding to my wish list.

Thanks for the photos.

Last night I sprayed olive oil on my stainless racks and loaded the thang with wangs. Could have done another rack or two so it looks like it will hold about 60 wing pieces if stacked and racked right. Done in about 25 minutes to perfection.

Outside was great and crispy charded and the inside was moist and tender.

Thanks guys.
Larry as best I can tell the inferred heat has to be at 450+. Maybe 500 degrees.

If I use an automotive inferred thermometer gun and aim inside and up and down the walls of the inner pot it's reading between 425-475 degrees.

An oven cook time on a Whole Chicken is about 30 minutes per pound at 400 degrees oven temp.

The Big Easy cooks Whole Chickens at about 7 minute per pound which is about the same as Deep Frying one.

Turkeys are 3-4 minutes per pound to Deep Fry and 10 minutes per pound in the Big Easy.

You go more by Internal Temps for doneness then you do times but times are important for planning a cook.

I have a 13 lbs Turkey to do it it Thursday along with Deep Fry another 13lbs Turkey to do for the Monkey People.

Again thanks guys
peace
