Buckfast Wings (+Others!)

Wings in the freezer and a bottle of Buckfast BBQ sauce in my hut, it was time for Buckfast Wings!

Buckfast Wings

I got the Buckfast sauce from Rendalls butcher online. Think it was £3 plus delivery.

The Prep:

Flour, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, baking powder and paprika in a bag followed by the wings. Thoroughly mixed and good to go.

The Cook:

A full chimney of Whittle and Flame charcoal poured into the Vortex with a cherry chunk on top. Wings placed around the outside, bone pointing inwards where I remembered!

SUMMARY:

My wife has been asking me to cook wings like the first time I did them, I had a look back in my blog and found the basic flour, baking powder, etc method so recreated it. They came out nice and crispy so I would repeat it. I wasn’t too sure how the Buckfast BBQ sauce would taste but it was really nice, would recommend trying it.

Also cooked this week:

Rotisserie Chicken:

I had a Fosse Meadows chicken in the freezer, time to cook it. I hadn’t used the rotisserie for a while so just did a simple cook.

On the Napoleon Pro 22 – cherry chunks to the side.

Close to the end, looking awesome!

75°C on the Thermapen, time to come off. 

Rotisserie Chicken

Such a simple cook, top quality chicken from Fosse Meadows rubbed in rapeseed oil and smoked with cherry chunks. It always amazes me how juicy these chickens are when you slice them. Slow grown with naturally formed fat, plenty of flavour.

Rump Cap:

I had a rump cap in the freezer, from my previous cooks with this cut there was only one way I was going to cook it. Over logs in the WSM! Once I built my fire from whisky oak staves I salted the beef and placed it on the top rack fat side down.

Rump Cap

Great view, it smelt awesome too.

Flipped over, what a colour!

Looking fantastic!

The basic structure of the fire was still there.

Rump Cap

Nice and pink, slightly overdone on one edge but cooking over a proper fire isn’t easy!

Rump Cap

I loved this cook. Great fun cooking over logs and the smell is unreal. The beef tasted awesome, smokey, juicy but tender. This is the way to cook it!

Pizza:

I am still stuck on the 1st dough recipe in the pizza bible, I will move on soon but this tastes so good it’s hard to move on! First pizza, Chorizo

Pizza

Another Chorizo, not a great shape – it must have stuck to the peel when I launched it.

Pizza

Better shape, slightly burnt!

Pizza

That’s better.

Pizza

Pepperoni on this one.

Pizza

The Ooni Pro is a beast. Fired by whisky oak staves, it’s glorious!

Pizza

Last one is usually mine so it had to be a bit burnt!

Pizza

I do love the pizza bible pizzas and it’s always great fun cooking on the Ooni Pro.

If you fancy buying an Ooni or have one already have a look at my Ooni blog page:
