Wing Sunday

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by tucson bbq fan, Aug 5, 2013.

  1. Well, I was browsing SMF on Sunday morning thinking about what to do for Sunday dinner.  I had nothing thawed or prepared.  I saw BDSkelly's post from a week or so back on wings and got inspired (Thanks BD!)  I decided to do a variation on the recipe he posted (a variation on an older one from Scarbelly).

    I injected my wings with a honey-teriyaki mix (since my wife likes her wings sweet and not spicy.

    I brushed them in EVOO and sprinkled some Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning on them.

    Into the smoker set to 180F (Memphis Elite with a 50/50 mix of Hickory & Cherry pellets)

    I planned on smoking the wings for about 3 hours, testing for doneness by feel.

    While they were smoking, I made a wing glaze sauce. (actually, made two, one sweet for my wife and one hot for me)

    The base sauce is:
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
    • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 cup honey
    • 1/2 cup bourbon
    • 1/4 cup molasses
    I split this into two sauce pans.

    For the sweet sauce, I added the remaining honey-teriyaki marinade.  For the hot sauce, I added 2 cups Franks red hot wing sauce and 1/4 cup Chipolte Tabasco sauce.  I simmered both on a very low setting till they reduced and thickened up.

    About 20 minutes before I was ready to pull the wings from the smoker, I preheated my oven to 425F.

    I dunked half the wings into the hot sauce and half in the Teriyaki sauce and put them on pizza pans into the oven for 5 minutes to set the glaze.  Then I repeated the dunking and setting in the oven for a second layer to get a good thick layer of sauce on them.

    Teriyaki version below.

    Had a salad with these and enjoyed the meal.  Again, thanks to BDSkelly for the inspiration and the base recipe!
