PIT PIRATE’S YARDBIRD “WANGS”

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Use the Big Easy® Oil-less Turkey Fryer for this recipe.

INGREDIENTS

Chicken wings

Get some oil to spritz on them

Lemon Juice

Salt

Pepper

Favorite “wang” seasoning or Rub

INSTRUCTIONS

Place all of the ‘wangs’ on the bottom and accessory shelves in the cooking basket, making sure there is adequate room between pieces so the infrared can hit them all. Place the loaded cooking basket into the Big Easy and turn on HIGH leaving the lid on for at least 5-10 minutes. I love the sound of them even after just going in. The sound of chicken skin crackling and the smell is a little piece of heaven. Serve these Yardbird “Wangs” with your favorite dipping sauce. Some folks like hot sauce and some like cool sauce. S’all up to you friend! But take my advice – “When you eat these, stand away from folks because they are so good you’ll want to Slap Someone!”

APPLE BUTTER BBQ RIBS

INGREDIENTS

2 Full slabs of baby back ribs

2 tbsp Brown sugar

1 tbsp Paprika

1 tsp Cayenne powder

1/2 tbsp Black pepper

1 tsp Ground ginger

1 tsp Dried thyme

Apple wood chunks

Apple Butter BBQ Sauce

1 cup Apple butter

1/2 cup Ketchup

1/2 cup Brown sugar

1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp Yellow mustard

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Salt & pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat your grill for indirect: Place an aluminum foil pan filled with water under the grill grate and toss a chimney of hot coals alongside. With a butter knife and some paper towels, remove the membrane under each slabs of ribs by inserting the knife between the membrane and one of the bones, pull the membrane with a paper towel to remove it completely. Mix the brown sugar, paprika, cayenne powder, salt, black pepper, ground ginger and dried thyme in a small bowl then apply the rub on both sides of the ribs with your hands so it penetrates the meat. Place the ribs on the grill grate in indirect and toss a few apple wood chunks onto hot coals; Close the lid and cook for 2 hours at 300°F. Add all the Apple Butter BBQ Sauce ingredients to a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. After 2 hours of cooking, wrap the ribs in aluminum foil with 1 cup of the Apple Butter BBQ Sauce on top of each; Cook for another 1 hour at 300°F; You know the ribs are done when the meat have shrunk of about 1 inch from the bones. Once fully cooked, remove from foil and sear over direct heat for 30 seconds per sides to caramelize the bbq sauce; Serve and enjoy!
