Chef Eric Gephart is back with a new recipe… this time it’s the Kamado Joe King Wing. This is a whole wing recipe that is sure to impress your friends and family.
The Kamado Joe King Wing
- whole chicken wings, tip removed
- 16 oz. pickled jalapeños
- 32 oz. Dale’s Steak Seasoning
Poblano Pepper Ranch Dressing
- 4 Poblano peppers, charred
- prepared ranch dressing
King Wing Slaw
- blue cheese crumbles
- blue cheese dressing
Preheat your Kamado Joe Big Joe II to 300ºF, set up for direct grilling.
Remove the tips from the chicken wings with a sharp knife. We will leave the flat and drumettes intact for this recipe.
Combine the Dale’s Steak seasoning and pickled jalapeños in a KitchenAid Food Processor, and blitz it to combine the ingredients. Place the chicken wings in a food safe container and cover with the marinade. Place in the refrigerator for three hours.
*Do not exceed three hours as the wings will take on too much salt and dry out.
While the wings are marinating place place your poblano peppers directly on the coals of the Kamado Joe. We want the skin to start to char and blister, turning them as needed. Once the skin has blistered all over pull them from the charcoal and place them in a glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Wait ten minutes for them to steam and then remove the skin and seeds. Rough chop the peppers and combine in your food processor with prepared ranch dressing.
Place the deflector shields into your Kamado Joe Big Joe to switch from direct to indirect grilling. Pull the wings from the marinade and put them skin side down on the grates.
While the wings cook combine the slaw ingredients and set it aside.
