    I made some chix wings to take to a friends house for the 4th. I made two kinds. I brined the wings pieces in a pretty normal brine.

    Here they are out of the brine, rinsed, and dried. The ones on the left got dusted with my normal bbq rub. The ones on the right I seasoned with garlic salt and "Hot Shot" (a store bought blend of black and red pepper

    Here is a pic after about an hour on the drum. The bbq ones are in the back and there are a couple dozen abts across the middle.

    Abts are done

    I made a glaze by simmering some onion, garlic and adding about 1/2 cup of homemade jalapeno jelly my wife got from a friend at work along with a Sam Adams Blackberry Beer. Inspired by something I saw Bbqgoddess put together on another site.

    Here it is after simmering until nice and thick-the jalapeno jelly turned it bright green. But the wings did not turn green. Thank goodness

    When the wings were almost done I glazed them. I used a store bought bbq sauce on the other wings. Here they are all done. The bbq on the right and the jalapeno/blackberry on the left

    They were very good and the jal/blackberry ones disappeared fast. The jalapeno jelly is pretty sweet but with good flavor. Next time I will add some cayenne to the glaze for some heat.

    Again, original ideas that knock taste buds out of the park!! BBQGODDESS has some very unique ideas behind her smokes and that's the creativity that is absent in my brain. Looks like it's rubbed off on you, Wutang, quite well!! [​IMG]

    Nice looking wings wutang, great idea adding the jalapeno jelly. Might not have looked right but would have been neat to see some green wings.

    My wife was a little worried that they might turn green. She also complained because the kitchen had that "warm beer" smell after simmering the sauce. But once she tasted them she agreed they were great. (She just said I might have to make the sauce outside next time)

    Thanks again everyone.

    I cooked them in my UDS. I ran temps around 240-250 and burned Royal Oak lump charcoal and some cherry chunks. I smoked them for about 2-2.5 hours. I just cook them until the bacon gets crispy.
