  1. Hi All,

    Just checking in.  Boy, I tell ya working really gets in the way of my playtime!  It was a little cooler today here in Vegas.  The high today was only 105 so I thought this would be a good day to do some smokin'


    I got this recipe for Smoked Deep Fried Chicken Wings from one of my YouTube buddies.  I must admit this is my new favorite way to cook chicken wings........smoke em' and fry em'.  Didn't take step by step pics because I was shooting a video on the process and I don't know how to post a video on this site sorry. 

    My Method:

    - I smoked my wings with hickory wood, ran my smoker right around 275 -280 degrees. 

    - Smoked my wings to an internal temp of 165.  I got hung up on a phone call so my wings actually went to 174    worries they were still good.  The skin had a really nice bite thru and it was nice and crispy. I didn't batter my wings before frying.

    - Heated up the oil in my deep fryer to 350 degrees.  I took my wings off the smoker and immediately dropped them in the hot oil and fried for 2-3 minutes. I removed the wings from hot oil and drained on a paper towel.  I tossed hot wings in three different sauces.

    here are a few pics of my finished smoke & fry. I tossed some in Sweet Chili Sauce, some in Buffalo Hot sauce and some in BBQ sauce.....they were smoky, crispy, tender and delicious! 

    Hope all is well with everybody.....Be Blessed and Keep on Cooking (and smoking!)  Josie

    I've read countless articles on crisping skin with a smoker and I know that's always a tough thing for anybody.i always see to fry it after wards real quick or throw it on grill to crisp it up. How long on grill does it need to be to crisp up and be good, and should it be right over the heat or non direct heat. I'm guessing put them over indirect heat for hi temp. Also by frying afterwards trying to get them crispy will it alter the flavor of the smoke taste or whatever other flavor there by going in deep fryer oil?
