Smoked Chicken Wings are easy and really show your guests that you know how to up your game! Coat with your favorite rub or seasoning then finish with hot sauce or BBQ sauce.
24-36 Chicken Wings - can smoke with tips, or cut off the tips. You can also separate the drums and wings.
Rub or seasoning - you can use any of your favorites, and you can even use more than one.
BBQ Sauce or Hot Sauce - you can sauce your wings with anything you like from BBQ sauce to Buffalo sauce.
We want to smoke these wings at 250-degrees for about two to three hours or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165-degrees. I like to use apple or pecan wood for chicken wings.
First season your wings with your rub. This can be done easily by tossing everything into a plastic bag, shake, and then you can just take them to the grill.
The lower your temperature gets the longer the wings will take longer to cook. So, a good rule of thumb is to cook to reach your target temperature.
Once your wings get to or close to the done temperature brush with your sauce of choice and cook about 20 minutes longer.
