Chicken

Smoked Wings

We recently posted a delicious recipe (if I do say so myself) of Smoked Pork Roast

One of the things I mentioned in that particular blog is the old saying of “Waste not want not.”

What I meant is if your going to go through all the work of setting up your smoker for one meal, why not think ahead and get two meals out of the deal

After all cooking an extra meal on the weekend can really benefit you on a busy weekday night

Smoke a nice roast on Sunday for dinner and smoke some chicken wings for a busy weeknight

Which is what we plan to do here

Note:  If your not using an already hot smoker make sure to soak about 3 cups worth of pecan wood chips in water overnight

We are starting off with 3 pounds of chicken wings

 I cut the wing tips off but leave the rest of the wing intact

This makes it easier to manage the wings on the smoker (you can leave them this way or cut into sections later on)

Next we will need 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon each of kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon of paprika

Place your wings in a large bowl and coat with the oil, sprinkle with the seasoning

Toss them around to coat evenly and set aside

If you doing the two meal deal I suggested then your smoker is ready

If not lets start it up

I use a Weber Chimney Starter to get my Cowboy coal going.  I use about two starters worth of coal which will get the smoker up to a nice 250 F

Once your coals are ready sprinkle your wet pecan chips over them

Put the wings on the top rack and close up your smoker

Cook these for 1 – 1 1/2 hours

Remove and let rest a few minutes
