First smoke ever: Turkey wings with Qview

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by wcassell, Oct 26, 2013.

  1. Broke my new smoker in today with some turkey wings and drummies that the wife picked up.

    Prep:
    - Basic brine for about 4 hours
    - Rubbed wings with some clarified butter (ghee) before putting on the seasoning
    - Rubbed 2 wings with basic pepper, garlic powder, and a bit of Cajun seasoning
    - Rubbed remaining 2 wings with Penzeys Arizona Dreaming seasoning

    Smoke:
    - 2 hours at 250ish; 30 minutes to finish around 320ish
    - Pulled them at 170
    - Used cherry chunks with a few apple chips to start
    - Used 50:50 water:Apple cider in the water pan

    Verdict:
    - Flavor was incredible. Both rubs were good, but both wife and I liked the basic Cajun rub better
    - Need to work on getting the skin crispier. Too rubbery
    - Overall a big thumbs up
