Big Green Egg - Lemon Pepper Wings

Lemon Pepper WIngs on Big Green Egg

We LOVE our Big Green Egg...have I said that before?  I am sure I have.  This weekend we cooked these yummy Lemon Pepper Wings on it.  We also made a whole chicken, and sweet potato crinkles.  I love how all the food turns out so moist and yummy.  I even created an Apple Crisp on the BGE this weekend.  It was to die for with vanilla ice cream (more on that later).  But on to this recipe!

Prep Time:  2 hours and 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35-45 minutes
Total Time:  3 hours


  • 2 1/2 lbs Chicken Wings
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (or Real Lemon works too)
  • 2 tsp pepper
1.  Grate garlic into small pieces.  Place in a mortar and add a pinch of salt.  Grind together until it becomes a paste.  (This can also be done on a cutting board with the back edge of a spoon, if you don't have a mortar and pestle.  

2.  Heat olive oil in a saucepan until hot over a medium-low heat.
3.  Add garlic and allow to simmer.

4.  Add 1 cup of lemon juice and 2 tsp pepper and stir.  Remove from heat.

5.  Allow to cool to almost room temperature.
6.  Place wings in a large ziplock bag and pour in liquid.  

7.  Let rest at room temperature for 2 hours.
8.  Heat up Big Green Egg to 250 degrees.
9.  Place wings on grate over direct heat.  Save lemon sauce for basting.

10.  Cook wings for 35-45 mins until golden brown, basting every 10 mins.
11.  Serve and Enjoy!
