    I have been in the mood to smoke lately and decided to do up some chicken wings.

    I took a few methods and recipes from various forums, and then tweaked them a bit, and they turned out AWESOME!

    Here is the marinade that I used. This is good for 5 lb's of wings. I normally do up 10 lbs so just double the recipe.

    1 packet Italian Seasoning
    1/4c Franks Hot Sauce
    1/2c Oil
    1/4c Vinegar
    a bit of water
    Couple Shakes of Garlic Powder

    If I ever would do them for just my self I would take and grind up some smoked hot peppers or add a dash of insanity sauce and throw that into the mix.

    Let the wings marinade over night in the fridge.

    Fired up the smoker and threw them in at 225.

    I did a heavy smoke for the first 1 hour, I used about 4 ounces of Apple pellets.

    Then let them finish no smoke @ 250.

    Pull the wings coated them in hot wing sauce and threw them on a super hot grill to crisp them up.

    I have to say this is the best wings I have ever done. I don't have any pics, but I may try to take a couple of the batch in the smoker right now. The problem is the wife and the neighbor usually snatch em up before I can post pics.

    I think I might have to try the same marinade on some spatchcocked chickens and see how it turns out.

    Well it was a good thing that I did up 15 lbs of wings so I had some to snap pics of.

    I am still torn as which wings were better. The frozen 10 lb bag I get at Sam's club or the Fresh 4.5lb packs that have not been separated yet.

    The pic's posted are from the fresh wing pack.

    Here is from the first 5lb I did up.
