    Not done in the smoker(looks like this section has some deep fried, and roasted posts), but deep fried, twice.

    Figured some might enjoy these wings, I sure did, crunchy, sweet, and hot. The secret was the batter, and deep frying them twice, once @ 350, and then a second run @ 375.

    Marinated the wings in:
    - milk(1 cup),
    grated onion(1),
    soy sauce(1 tbsp),
    garlic(4 cloves),
    ginger(2 tbsp),
    black pepper(1/2 tsp)

    Before marinating, I made 2-3 slices in each wing piece to help the marinade penetrate

    The batter is:
    flour(1/2 cup),
    corn starch(2/3 cup),
    baking powder(1/5 tsp),
    salt(1/4 tsp.),
    black pepper(1/2 tsp.),
    sugar1.5 tsp),
    ice water(1 cup)

    the sauce is:
    toasted sesame seeds(1/2 cup),
    Shark Sriracha(6 tbsp),
    Rooster Sriracha(6 tbsp),
    El Yucateco Habanero(1 tbsp),
    3 whole serrano peppers,
    ketchup(12 tbsp),
    garlic(5 cloves),
    ginger (1 tsp),
    soy sauce(1 tsp),
    sugar(1/2 cup),
    lemon juice(5 tbsp).

    SUch an easy sauce to make, cant see buying any asian style sauce loaded with salt, and hfcs, etc.

    fried @ 350 for 6 mins, and then @ 375 for 4 mins in batches

    after 1st fry:

    after 2nd fry:

    sauce I made:

    Jim, nice looking wings. Around here we can get the Rooster Sriracha (I keep a bottle at home and at work [​IMG]) but I've never seen the Shark Sriracha.

    The sauce I use for my wings is:

    1 cup brown sugar (I use the dark)
    1/3 cup Franks Red Hot sauce
    1/3 cup Cholula Hot sauce
    1/3 cup Sriracha (Rooster) Hot sauce.

    Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Pour sauce over wing and stir to coat well.
    Eat and enjoy!!

    thanks dutch,

    I can get shark @ some of the asian markets, I like it a little better than Rooster, but both are good.

    Nice lookin wing sauce recipe you have there, I like your use of the different hot sauces, different layers of heat, and flavor.

    Great looking wings, I'm debating whether or not to show this to my BIL, once I do I know he will want them so I guess that would work out in my favor anyway.
