We started with
3.5lb. party wings (could use whole wings)
1-1/2 cup Sweet Baby Rays "sweet and spicy" BBQ sauce
1/2 cup Jack Daniels
2 tbls. brown sugar
Bring that to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in:
1/2 cup Plus 4 tbls Dijon Mustard
Allow the mixture to cool completely and pour over wings to marinate for 3 hours (could be longer, but this provided good flavor).
Put into 160 deg smoker with apple smoke for 1 hour, bumped up to 200 deg for additional hour.
Removed and grilled on high heat to crisp up the skin a bit and cook through.
Served with additional BBQ Sauce or Frank's Red Hot....and beer!
Just out of the marinade
After 2 hours of smoke
Fresh off the grill!
My wife like these with BBQ sauce but I think the heat from the Franks Red Hot better compliments the smoke and JD flavors.
