Smoked wings

Discussion in 'Grilling Chicken' started by ibewelectrician, Jul 10, 2016.

  1. Hello all! I've been reading several temps to smoke wings at. I have a 40" mes and was wondering what temp I should smoke wings at. Also I will use water in the pan and how should the vent be? I appreciate the info everybody!

    I smoke my wings at 225-250, then crisp up the skin on a hot gas grill.

    It only takes about 1 1/2 hours on the smoker, then about 2 to 3 minutes on each side on the grill.

    Then toss them in a combo of melted butter & Frank's hot wing sauce.

  3. Thanks Al, do you recommend crisping them on a grill of deep fryer?

    Either one will do the job, I prefer the grill because it's easier than heating up a pot of oil.

  5. Thank you sir! One more question if you don't mind. Do you want the vent wide open for chicken wings or closed quite a bit?

    You want the top vent wide open as long as there is smoke rolling.

    Which for this case, wings, you will have the smoke going the whole time.

    If you were smoking a rack of ribs & had them in the foil stage then you can close the top vent to keep the heat in.

  7. Thank you Al! I'll post a before and after pic later on this afternoon when I fire up the smoker. Just doing 3 lbs for the first wing trial run!

    You should look up scarbelly wings. I have been doing them this way for years and it is the only way in my opinion. Injected with the wing sauce rather than slathered. They are the bomb. 
     
  9. Thank you very much I will have to try!
     
  10. This is what I put on the wings, we will see what they taste like. Pics to follow when done!
     
  11. Here are the wings with the rub before the smoker and I will post a done pic later!
     
  12. Here is the finished product!
