Best buffalo wings I've ever made

  1. A while back, the smoking meat newsletter talked about smoked/fried wings.  We have a local cajun place that does them this way.  I figured that would be great for the playoff games so... I put some drumettes and flats in a bag, lightly oiled them shook them to coat, added some rub and shook them around again to coat them well.  Then I smoked them at 250* until I got them to 165* internal for the flavor (about 1.5 hrs).  After the smoke, I deep fried them at 350* till they floated (for the crunch) and hit them with some cajun shake and added them to the spread we had.  I had a variety of sauces for our guests to dress their own; I used buffalo wing sauce but most ate them nekkid.   I think these are the best I've ever made. This is a photo of the ~25% that remained for the second game after the guests left.

    Well the wings look good and I'll have to take you word for it that they are the best wings yet.

  11. Those look great! Was the deep-frying necessary or could the wings have been eaten right out of the smoker? Im gonna hafta do some of these!!

  13. Deep fry was not necessary.  They were completely done temp-wise,  but I like a crispy skin on my wings.

    A quick fry or a trip over a hot grill would make that skin super tasty!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    X2, skip the oil and use a hot grill next time and you'll have less of a mess & healthier wings.

    I like to inject them with buffalo sauce and rub with cajun shake then smoke them.

    I like them finished on the grill, they crisp up nicely and still have the great texture.  Those look great though!
