    So I am going to smoke some wings for the first time next week.  I have done plenty of chicken halves, whole chickens, etc.  My question with wings is, do you smoke them in a foil pan with a butter bath like you would do for competition legs?  I was thinking of soaking them in melted butter overnight and then smoking at a high temp to get crispier skin but wasn't sure about the butter bath in a foil pan or if i should just go directly on the grates.  I am smoking on a 22.5 WSM.  Thanks!

    I've never used a butter bath myself, but maybe someone who has will chime in.  I just lay them right on the grates.  About the final 30 minutes or so, I'll crank up the temp in my smoker to 325*-350* to get nice crispy skins.  They always come out great!

    We love wings!  Be sure to post up some qview and let us know how they turn out!  [​IMG]

    Thank you!  I figured most would be putting them on grates so I just wanted to double check.  I get a little into watching BBQ pitmasters and always see the butter baths for legs.

    You could do a few of the butter bath wings in small pan just to see how they come out. If you do be sure and let us know how they tasted and don't forget the Q-view! As dirtsailor said-the scarebelly wings are a great as well, never been disappointed with injected wings.
