I will be smoking some wings shortly..Is the temp of 225 good? I have them in garlic and Franks right now....
Personally I like to crank the smoker to temps of 300 degrees plus to crisp up the skin as I smoke them. 225 will work but most of the time will result in the skin being kinda like rubber unless you crisp them on a grill or in the oven
Last ones I did were smoked at around 240° then rolled in a little flour and fried to crisp them up. I then bathed them in the franks/butter sauce that makes them oh so good
Alot of smokers cannot reach 300+ degrees so another thing you can do is smoke the chicken on the smoker
Then finish them on a hot charcoal or gas grill.
I know this is old, but I got some wings today and was going to smoke them later. Good info here, looks like if I can maintain up to 300 degrees I should be good. Or just finish them in the oven afterwards. Thanks all.
another brand of hot sauce....the one with the wooden top. Not bad, but hard to beat Franks IMHO
