I've done some pretty good wings on my 11/12 year old premier. However I've usually been drinking and I forget what and how? So my question is Whats your guys es favorite method and or recipe, hu hu hu. I've been told the blue ribbon champion at the ohio state fair uses the holland grill but no secrets. Any tips or technique we can all share with each other would be great. Thanks

I have been cooking wings on my holland grills (apex)for about 18 years now and they are almost famous.I use fresh not frozen and cut the flapper (tip) off. I season them with tony's cajun seasoning, garlic salt, lemon pepper and anything i see in the kitchen. Cook them and the most important step is to pull them off the grill,cover them in Frank's Pepper Sauce (Red Hot) then place back on the grill for about 10-15 min more. Get the cold beers and some blue cheese or ranch dressing and cut loose.

We like to use fresh wings too, cut the wings in half than roll them in Holland's Breader and mix in a little of Holland's Rump Shake. Cook til golden brown and brush on Texas Pete wing sauce or sauce of choice for the last five minutes. Your wings will be crispy and not greasy. Friends say there the best!!!

Sprinkle hollands greek seasoning on those wings, then use a cup and a half of alder for smoke flaver.
Put chips in foil,then place in upper left hand corner of drip pan. P.S. Lay off the sause, and your memory will improve. ;-)

I just made these for the first time over the holidays, and my family loved them. I sprinkled drumettes with a little Rump shake and then coated with BWW mild sauce. Grilled for about 15 to 20 minutes per side ( I think that was about the amount of time, but it was really cold outside). Removed from the grill and rolled in fresh sauce again before serving. Make sure you don't use the sauce or the bowl from before the grilling - you don't want to cross-contaminate with nasty raw chicken juice.

This thread really interests me. I have yet to do any chicken wings on my Apex but plan to shortly. However, if I were to cook wings for the times given by serveral here I'd have nothing but ash left. A total of 30 to 40 minutes on my Apex would completely burn them to a crisp. Are you guys doing something to lower the temp?

@ Tom K

Tom,
What you have to consider is that your newer Apex is going to get 50/75 degrees hotter than the older grills of a few years ago. The Apex has been out about 5 years, some of the Hollands in these discussions could be 20+ years old.
You need to develop cooking times to suit your particular grill & temps.

Mine's an 07 Epic and it takes at least 40 mins for wings. Tom has the fastest cooking holland in captivity....or the fastest wristwatch.

A good hour up here in Minnesota for a whole rack full of wings. 40-50F outside temp.

My Apex does seem to cook very fast and generally hits 400F to 430F depending on whether there is much wind or cold.

I did my wings in something like 16 to 20 minutes tops and they were certainly done, if not just a bit too done for my taste. However, they were also certainly delicious. Not sure I will order restaurant wings ever again - these were a real cut above.
