You Will Need

The Prep

Let's cook up some wings, shall we? First up, we're going to brine the chicken. This will not only add flavor, but also moisture to the wings. The end product will be juicier on the inside and crispy on the outside - exactly how you want 'em.

Grab a plastic zip-top bag, large enough to hold all of the chicken wings comfortably. Add 3/4 of a cup of Kosmo's chicken soak, as well as half a gallon of distilled water to the wings. Then seal the bag, pushing out as much air as you can, and shake to mix thorroughly. 

Let the chicken brine for 4 hours in the refrigerator. Pro tip: put the bag in a pan, to avoid possible spillage.

The Cook

After 4 hours, bring the chicken out of the fridge. Remove the wings from the brine, and pat dry with paper towels. 

Next, get a dry bowl, and mix the potato starch and baking powder in it. Add the chicken, and toss to fully coat. Shake off the excess breading, and set aside while you set up your cooker.

Preheat your fryer to 350ºF (177ºC). Once hot, carefully add the chicken to the hot oil and fry for 10-12 minutes. Cook to an internal temperature of 175-180ºF (80-82ºC), then pull them out of the fryer.

The Payoff

Place the cooked chicken on a cookie rack to let the oil drain. Finally, add the cooked chicken to a large bowl with General Tso Wing Sauce. Mix and toss to coat. If you need (or want) more sauce, don't hold back!

Serve warm, and enjoy!

Overnight Pork Butts on a Pellet Grill

Effortlessly smoke tender, juicy pork butts overnight on your pellet grill. Perfect for no-fuss, delicious BBQ. Wake up to mouth-watering aromas and ready-to-shred pork.

The EASIEST Overnight Pork Butts On A Pellet Grill EVER!

On today’s video, I’m showing you how to make the easiest, overnight pork butt you’ve ever made in your life! For this pork butt, we’re firing up the Traeger with hickory pellets, but you use whatever cooker, and pellets, you want, just make sure it’s ready to run at 225°F overnight. This video is perfect for beginners that are looking for an easy pork butt recipe. First, I’ll show you how I do a light trim, then we’ll apply a mustard binder, rub it up, and set it on the smoker. And, if you don’t want to trim the fat off, you don’t even have to do that! Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than this smoked pork butt recipe. Even though we aren’t injecting these pork butts, I’ll tell you what I would use if we decided to. And make sure you’re paying attention because I’m showing you exactly how to rack these pork butts for the perfect smoke. Plus, if you’re smoking in the cold, I’ll tell you how I maintain the perfect temperature in my smoker. Once you’ve got the pork butts perfectly placed, shut the lid and don’t touch them for at least 12 hours. When that time is up, I’ll show you how to check the temp, get the perfect wrap, and we’ll finish up the cooking process. Once the pork butts are complete, we’ll shred it, make some killer sandwiches, and what doesn’t get eaten, we’ll store for later. Enough talking, let’s get to cooking.
