My favorite place to eat has been a local bbq joint and my favorite item has been their smoked wings. It gets pretty expensive eating out so I decided to figure out how to smoke my own wings. Plus it seems they started reheating them in a fryer before serving them and things got a lot dryer.
After a lot of research I went with the smoking-it #1. It's an electric smoker which means I don't have to worry about temps and it's pretty much as simple as set it and forget it. I seasoned the smoker two nights ago and ran my first batch through last night and it was freakin awesome. Nice juicy fall off the bone wings.
I started with one 5lb bag of wings. Split it them into two bags with olive oil and 2 different kinds of off the shelf seasonings. This weekend I am going to run 10 lbs through and am going to try brining a chicken.
I am trying to eat healther so I probably wont be running any pork or beef through. I am not saying they aren't ok to eat in moderation but if I have a bunch of smoked meat in front of me, I forget what moderation means. I have scouted out a market with fresh fish steaks and am searching for a source for fresh turkey breasts that aren't pre brined.
I love spicy hot foods and am looking for some good rubs/seasonings. I don't like tobasco type hot sauces tho.
