After how good the wings were a few weeks ago, I wanted to do them again. The rub is some of the MM chicken rub we had left from the last wing cook, which we really liked. This time I'm going to try three sauces at the end- Myron's Chicken Sauce (which required me to cook a couple of sauces, combine in a blender & cook once more), our favorite homemade sauce (which we call Zip sauce) & Myron's Hog Glaze (apple-flavored), which I had left over from ribs last Thursday. I think they'll all be good, but I wanted to have choices & sauces don't usually go to waste around here. The wood will be about 2/3 hickory & the other 1/3 cherry. You may notice the small quantity of wings in these pics, as it was just going to be the wife & I originally, but after I already had my wings brined, the wife called & said she was bringing a couple of guests over. That required a trip down to the store & another couple of packs of wings, so I'm doing one batch right behind the other. These pics are the first batch. Got the smoker going, the first batch in & the Chicken Sauce is on the stove. Going 275 degrees (my smoker's max) & I plan on crisping the skin & caramelizing the sauce under the broiler after they are done, like last time out.
Got the rub going for a couple of hours this morning-
Brined them for another 2 hours-
Fired up the smoker (we had 30 mph winds, hence the chimney)-
Once more with the rub-
In they go-
