Smoked Wings

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Just got an MES for Christmas and going to try and smoke some wings for the first time. Question is, I know on most other meats you only smoke up to a point, and then just slow cook from there. Since the time to cook wings is so short, should I use smoke for the full 2-2.5 hours? Using hickory to smoke and heard that to much hickory flavor will actually taste bitter. HELP!!!

2-2.5 hours of TBS should be fine for wings. I do wins every once in awhile and use smoke the whole time. wood is normally a mix of hickory and apple.

Excellent, Thanks! Have you ever thrown a pan of homemade sauce in there to get a smokey flavor in that as well?

Your time is good , the Hickory will be hearty , but not inedible , I like the heavy smoke flavor , a matter of personal choice. Cherry is a very good wood for a light sweet taste and does great with Poultry (domestic) and Pork Ribs.


A mix of fruit woods is an excellent choice also...


Have fun and...

Kick the heat up to 275 & they will be done in about 1 3/4 hours with crispy skin. Let the smoke roll the whole time.

   I have tried that, it does impart a smokey flavor to the sauce.


Good luck with the wings and remember the pics biggrin.gif

Almost anything you put in the smoker is going to take on some smoke so yes the sauce will be good . Like Al said try to do the wings at 275

I like to use Pecan for my wings. Cherry would be good too. Got some on the smoker as I type.

I wasn't the original poster on this thread, but I want to say thanks for the info as well. I am in the exact same boat. New MES for Christmas and I am going to run a batch of wings this weekend. I've had them at Smokey Bones and they were really good, so now I get to learn how to make them even better.

I got a MES for Christmas also. My first smoker. Wings are one of my favorites. I pour some olive oil and rub in a ziplok bag and shake the wings. Let them sit in the fridge for a few hours. Smoke them at 225 for 2.5 hours and then toss them in Frank's Buffalo sauce. I think this is more of a BWW flavor than a Smokey Bones flavor. 50/50 mix of apple and hickory.
