First time wings for gameday W/Qview

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

So, I figured today is as good as any to give smoking some wings a shot. I have been reading through the forums all week trying to gain as much knowledge as possible for my first shot at these on the smoker. I think I am going to do them low and slow for 2-2.5 hours at 225* and then toss them on a hot grill to crisp them up at the end.  I have been grilling wings with great success for years, but really want to learn to smoke them as well. I always marinate my wings for 12-24 hours in Team Realtree marinade for grilling, so I am going to stick with what I know for these as well. It adds great flavor that mixes well with wing sauce. I know a lot of you guys swear by Frank's hot sauce and butter for wing sauce, and I looked at it at the store, but once again, I am going to stick with what I know and go with Texas Pete's and butter. Once I get the cooking process right, I will give Frank's a try. I also have some ABTs and 2.5 lbs of fresh pork sausage going on this afternoon. Game time is 7:00 PM, so I am going to get started about 3:00 PM.

Got the wings in the marinade last night and into the fridge for an overnight nap.

 

I will be updating throughout the day with more pics. Any advice you might have is more than welcome. Wish me luck!

OK! So it is all done and I have done some quality control on everything. I am VERY pleased! Thanks to everybody on here for posting so much info and directions. The chicken wings are super juicy and tender. Sausage is great and the ABTs are truly like crack. Everything is in the oven on warm until my buddy shows up in a few. Wives are out of town shopping, so we are gonna eat, drink, and football. Happy Saturday!

Wings fresh out of the smoker. The Realtree has a lot of sugar in it, so you get a good bit of caramelizing.

After the grill. Got some crispy on the skin and a little carbonizing of the sugar. Does not affect the taste.

All sauced up with Texas Pete's and butter. Tossed them in a bowl and then poured the leftover sauce over the top of them.
