I am glad to have Char-Broil on board as a sponsor for 2017. Most of my work with them will appear on their website but I want to link to it from here and give you a few behind the scenes shots. Last month, I made these super easy and delicious Honey BBQ Wings.
I cooked these wings on Char-Broil's new and first (to my knowledge) kamado style grill - The Kamander.
|The Kamander is a budget priced kamado (~$350 neighborhood). I have to be honest and tell you that I was surprised at it's performance. I expected it to be "not great" because of it's price point but after several grilling and smoking sessions, it actually performs well. As I would expect from a good kamado grill, I was able to both grill at high temps and steady, low temps. Obviously, there are many factors to consider, so I'll post a full review later.|
|Like other kamados, the Kamander runs best on lump charcoal instead of briquettes.|
|The Honey BBQ Sauce given with the recipe on Char-Broil's site is simple with just 9 ingredients but it is not shy in the flavor department.|
|For seasoning the wings, I used a basic BBQ rub with a sweet and salty flavor profile with just the slightest kick of heat at the end.|
|Most times I cut the wings into drummettes and wing portions but lately I've been on a kick of doing them whole. I know it's psychological but I feel like I get more to eat this way.|
|Whole wings are easier to flip, too.|
|I used direct grilling for these wings instead of fire roasting them indirectly. It's a good bit faster but requires paying a little bit more attention during the cook.|
|These wings are great for a change of pace or milder palettes that don't like a much heat at all.|
