Adam and Joanne’s Tips

  • How to Establish Your Grill for Wings: We like to utilize both indirect and direct heat to grill wings.For a gas grill, pre-heat the grill with all burners on high. Turn one side off or to low– this will be the side you begin your wings. After the fat has actually rendered, move the wings to the side with burner still on. For a charcoal grill: Bank the majority of the coals on one side of the grill. The side with little to no coals will be the side you begin your wings. After the fat has actually rendered, move the wings to the side with more coals.
