Smoked Chicken Wings

You will need lots of wings, at least 1 pound per person, preferably 1 1/2 pounds per person. There’s not a lot of meat on those wings, plus, for all the work your putting into these, a few leftovers is always appreciated.

I usually purchase the whole wings, and trim them myself. Sometimes they are more than half the price, so, it can be worth the trouble.

Trimmed wings. Those little bitty wing tips at top don’t make for good eating. I do stick them in a freezer bag and save them for the next batch of homemade stock

A simple rub, of your choice, enhances the flavor. We used a rub that had light brown sugar in it, so our wings came out very dark.

This is definitely a weekend dish. These wings were on the smoker for about 3 hours at a temp between 225 and 250. For the last 30 to 40 minutes smoking we brushed on a little bit of BBQ sauce.

Fabulous!
