1st Time Smokers - Best Wings we've ever had!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I bought my husband a Brinkmann Vertical Gas Smoker for his birthday and we just tried it for the first time. We are both so happy with the results that i figured i would share the recipe here. These are hands down the best wings we've ever eaten!

 

 

Wood: Hickory & Mesquite

 

Water: Water & 1 cup orange juice

 

Dry Rub - Buffalo Dry rub purchased from Buffalo Wild Wings

 

 

Coated the wings with the dry rub and refridgerated over night.

Preheated the smoker to 250 Degrees

Right before put the wings on the racks i shook some salt, pepper and buffalo rub over the tops of the wings

 

We smoked them for approx 1 hour until they reached the proper temperature and then put them down on a 400 degree grill for about 3 mins on each side just to crisp up the skin.

 

We're both just sitting here in a food coma talking about how amazingly delicious these wings were. We can't believe how well we did on our very first try.

Sounds good, I didn't realize BWW sold rub. Just might have to stop by there.

The wings sound great, but we have a saying here.

Delicious looking wings.  My first question is, does adding OJ to the water pan make a difference?  I'm so new to this, and my smoker is being snowed on as we speak.

Nice looking wings!  drool.gif

 

Next time you do them don't be afraid to run your smoker at 325* Chicken takes on smoke fast so the higher temp will get you a crisper skin without having to hit the grill. Also try it without liquid in the pan. If you really want to take your wings to the next level inject them, then put your rub on them:

Yes I think the OJ makes a difference, just infuses a different flavor. We've done vinegar, oj, apple juice, and bourbon. Just experiment until you find your favorite.

Yeah, those came out looking really good.  I always expirment with different flavors in the water pan.  Lately I have been using some pineapple juice.

I didn't know Buffalo Wild Wings sold rubs either. I picked up some Buffalo rub and the rubbed wings smell pretty good. Going to smoke them tonight. I have made wings several times but have never tried crisping them after smoking. I don't have a deep fryer and my smoker only goes to 275 degrees max. I'm thinking about trying to crisp them on the grill also. Is that the best way?
