Made up some of SR's Australian Beer-Barbecued Wings from The Barbecue Bible last night. I've done these before, but it was a long time ago. Tried to do a search for them here, but maybe I never posted them, I don't know. I did double the red pepper flakes in the sauce, marinated them for 12 hours instead of 4 and cooked them a bit differently but pretty much stuck to his recipe.

On the Egg at 400F direct with a raised grate and apple wood for smoke.

Bout halfway through, I added some onion rings.

Finished

Definitely a different take on wings than what I am used to. They were sweet at first, with a hint of tang and finished off with a bit of heat and they were a sticky mess. But half the fun of wings are the mess, right? I think the apple wood played nicely with them, complimenting the flavors, but not over powereing. All in all some tasty wings.

Looks great, Grif! I'll have to look that recipe up. I like that brand of onion rings... They also make some really good chipotle sweet potato fries.

I thought the onion rings were ok. Calling them gourmet was a stretch, but then again anything frozen like fries, tots or onion rings are not gourmet.

Wings were really tasty, if a bit different.

As far as I am concerned wings are their own food group. Those look real tasty!

sroach - You mean this picture of the bones?

I don't always post all the pics from my cooks on here, because....well because it would be a lot. There are always more on the blog, and then there's even more on the editing room floor (or there would be if I had an editing room and we still dealt with actual physical pictures)

QJuju - my wife says that I believe the same thing...and she's right. They are their own food group.

jstewart - sorry about that. I couldn't count the number of times this forum has made me hungry or disappointed in some of my meals.
