So I have been anxiously wanting to share another smoking experience with everyone.
Our local Grocery store (Copps) had a sale on chicken wings. A big package for $4.00 so I thought even if I fail I'm not out much.
So I seasoned the chicken wings, got the smoker going. 275 degrees with Mesquite chips. I set the timer for 2 hours. I put water in the drip pan ( I want to try Apple juice next time ), Put the wings on, locked the smoker door down and left it go for two hours. I put more chips in by the side slot, just to keep the smoke going after an hour.
The pictures will show what they looked like going in and what they looked like coming out. They looked good so I didn't finish them under the broiler.
Something didn't work. First the skin was not crispy which is the way we like it. Second, the skin which we didn't eat but did try was very sharp tasting. Not edible at all. I know the seasoning could have been off but the meat was very strong with that sharp taste.
I could use your help if you have any suggestions.
Next time, I want to use apple juice in the drip pan, second I'm going to use apple wood and third I'm not going to use a dry rub because I want to see what the wings taste like on their own.
Has anyone else made wings on the smoker ? Was the smoker temperature too high ? Was the Mesquite the reason the taste was so overpowering ?
Any help is greatly appreciated. I will post my results as they come out.
I posted this for Dodger54481
