    Man, do I love slow-cooking chicken wings on the grill.

    Spicy home made rub.

    Off-set, with cherry and peach woods.

    First set is glazed with Syberg's mustard bbq sauce (STL restaurant)

    Second set is glazed with Sugarfire's Coffee/BBQ sauce (STL restaurant)

    Gave them a final minute each side over the coals to add some char.

    Pretty much a backyard staple for me, now.

    Only thing I'd do different is brine them for a couple hours. But dangit, I was hungry.

    pit 4 brains and gearjammer like this.

    Wings might be one of my favorite treats! Those look amazing! For some reason, I never do my own and have always gone to my favorite establishments to get them. I have brined a lot of pork, but never chicken. Is a few hour brine for chicken wings good enough? It seems since they are small you wouldn't brine them very long, but maybe I'm wrong? Looks great! I hope to do my own soon!

    You can brine those wings for just a couple hours and you'll be able to tell a difference. In my experience, it helps w/ the color and plumpness.

    But yeah, overdoing it too long could be a bad idea - probably too salty.

    Hey, I did it again!

    Traditional homemade Buffalo sauce on the far right. Used Cherry wood and Maker's Mark barrel chunks for flavor.

  9. How exactly do you cook them? I've wanted to smoke some wings, but never have.

    How long do you leave them on?
