Joe vs. the Kamado Joe King Wing recipe from Chef Eric Gephart!
Updated: Jan 2
This is the YouTube video link to the recipe.
This recipe is pretty straight forward and pretty cheap considering other cuts of meat. Well I guess I did half the recipe and it was probably the easy half.
The reason I love it? The Dales adds flavor all the way to the bone. Plus I'm a drumette kind of guy, some people are wing people... personally the meat between the bones slows me down! With the King Wing no one has to fight over their favorite style of wing.
I picked up an 18 pack of whole wings at local grocery store for a little over $10 bucks. The Dales Seasoning was less than $4. I used Teriyaki and Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce both bottles were around $4 each. I had ranch and blue cheese on hand. I didn't use the Poblano's as my main focus was the Buffalo Wing itself. So all in it cost around $25 dollars to make 36 wings (wing and drum) and is another reason why I love this recipe you will be flipping half the amount of wings since we left them whole. I did eat more than half so they were craving some more but still plenty for an appetizer or pre-game snack. One of my cooks I did add some larger drums as you can see in the picture.
I will say the Dales does make it pretty salty, it's a good salt all the way to the bone as mentioned before. So be aware of the saltiness and stick to the marinating times. If you're not a huge salt fan cut the marinating times down. I've made the King Wing style with the Dales and my sauces of choice more times than I can count. It's an easy recipe that is sure to please. Edit I did receive some Chiavetta's from a friend traveling from Buffalo and used that as a substitute to the Dales and it is much less salty.
During two cooks I've actually set the baking pan holding all my wings on my thermometer and the pan tipped resulting in quite a few lost wings to the ground! Not going to lie I thought a lot about the 5 second rule. So frustrating.
Results below from one of my cooks.
Here is Dale's via Amazon in the one gallon size if you can't find it at your local grocer.
