When you wanna wow your guests, pop these smoked chicken wings on your cooker of choice and have them ready within the hour! We tried two different glazes, so you can pick the one you like best.
Glaze #1 - Peach
Glaze #2 - Cherry
This recipe is meant to take about one hour from start to finish. Having said that, you can do some extra prep work if you're the forward-thinking kind:
About 6 hours before you want to cook, mix 3/4 cup of Chicken Soak to 1/2 gallon (64 oz.) of water. Shake well. Add the wings, and let them soak for 6 hours. Rinse excess off thoroughly afterwards.
Either way, when you're good to go, grab a large enough bowl to hold all the wings. Coat with olive oil, then season with SPG. Make sure the rub goes everywhere!
In the meantime, fire up your cooker! If you're using a Pit Barrel like we did, install the grill grates but leave the rods out - this will allow it to reach a higher temperature.
Once ready, arrange the chicken wings on your cooker, and close the lid. Give them a flip after 15-20 minutes, then let them cook.
While the wings are cooking, go ahead and mix the glaze of your choice! We mixed 1 cup of BBQ sauce with 1/4 cup of rib glaze (check the ingredients list above!), but feel free to use whatever you like. Mix well and warm the resulting sauce up before applying to the chicken.
After 30-40 more minutes of cooking, start checking the internal temperature. Your target is 165ºF (79ºC). When you hit the target temp, bring them wings off the cooker and toss in your BBQ sauce/glaze of choice.
Finally, place the glazed chicken wings back on the cooker, just long enough for the glaze to set. About 5 minutes at a high temp should be enough!
Only thing that's left to do is put 'em on a plate and serve to your friends and family!
Catch you on the next recipe!
