Smoked wings exploding in the fryer

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I tried something a little different last night and I'm trying to figure out what the deal is.  I smoked up some whole chicken wings in the gas smoker last night for a couple hours until they looked done.  Then, in an attempt to crisp up the skin (chicken skin in the smoker almost always turns out rubbery for me) I tried throwing them into the deep fryer at 375 for a few mins to let them get crispy on the outside.  It worked, except the wings also exploded in the fryer.  I took them directly from the smoker to the fryer, could this have been the issue?  Perhaps I should have let them cool a bit before putting them into the oil?

Any help is appreciated.

I thinkn the oven or grill may have been a better choice.  I suspect the juices in the wings caused you an issue.

I've done the same thing without any problems.

 

Don't know what would cause that, usually it's water.

You're probably right about the juices I suspect.  When I pulled them from the smoker they did have some juices running out of them.
