    I like my wings with bite through skin and a sweet/spicy sauce. However, She Who Must Be Obeyed, advised she wanted this batch to be crispy. She Must Be Obeyed.

    I have always wanted to try Salt and Pepper wings so this sounded like the time.

    We don't eat as much as we used to so I cut up 8 wings into sections and saved the tips for making stock.

    I mixed together 1 teaspoon of black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt powder.

    I tossed the chicken wings in 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

    Then I mixed in the salt and pepper.

    I had the pellet smoker preheated to 450 F and threw the wings on. I cooked them for 15 minutes and then turned them.

    I cooked them for another 15 minutes on the other side.

    While they were cooking on the second side, I mixed 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and 1 teaspoon of olive oil in the bottom of a small pot. I heated it up over medium heat. I sauteed 2 stalks of green onion, chopped and 2 cloves garlic; chopped fine. When the garlic was just getting a little brown colour, I took it off the heat and added 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce.

    When the wings came off, I tossed them with the onion mixture.

    Here is the finished product.

    The Verdict

    These were incredibly crispy. She Who Must Be Obeyed was pleased. I have to admit they were pretty good (don't tell her). There was a nice salt/pepper taste with a touch of heat from the Sriracha. I will make them again but I will say I am doing it just for her.

    Thanks, Adam!
    Well, Justin, the best praise is from the one you love! Thanks for the point.
    No need to camp out in the driveway. A beer buys a meal here.
    I always say that SWMBO has good taste in everything but men! Thanks, Red.

    We have wings thawing for tomorrow because swmbo wants hot wings, but it's too unpredictable out for smoking. Those look like they'd be really good just out of the oven!
    I'll have to get permission first, of course ;-)
    Excellent cook, as always, Disco!

    Thanks, Mike. It is amazing how the desire of the better half effects your smoking choices.
    Thanks for the point. I would think it should be fine in the oven.

    I like it!!! Simple, allowing the natural flavors of the bird and light charring to bloom with little enhancement, yet with a light touch of sweet & heat to carry it home.

    And you can't beat high heat for a crisp skin. I hear ya on stumbling into a good process when trying to please SWMBO and finding it to be of great value in your arsenal...that's where some of my best has originated, and I've been carrying it forward ever since.

    Nice work on those wings!!! Make me wanna grab some more wings for tossing on the kettle soon!!!
