First crack at some wings in the smoker w/ qview (update 1)

    did a standard rub - paprika, sugar, salt pepper, garlic powder, celery salt, cumin, ground chipotle pepper

    coated with olive oil and then tossed in rub, let rest for an hour or so.

    I am going to smoke at 240 or a while, not sure how long, then toss in sauce and finish in oven.  I like to bake on the sauce and it will crisp up the skins I hope.

    I will post finished product, here's a pic when I first put them in smoker


    I let them go at 240 for two hours.  I surprised at how crispy the skins were.  Here's a pic of the wings straight out of the smoker:


    Here is a pic of some sauced wings ready to go into a 300 oven for 30 minutes or so to bake on the sauce.  The sauce is a stick of butter, franks, some soy sauce, a splash of apple vinegar, and brown sugar.  I used too much butter this time and made the sauce too oily.  The flavor was still good and you won't notice after some time in the oven.  Also, notice that we have fewer wings going into the oven then I pulled of the smoker - wow were they tasty!

    That smoker looks brand new!  Better send them wings to me.  Its not wise to eat the first smoke off your own smoker.

    Just trying to help!

    I like to smoke them for 1.5 hours then coat in flour and deep fry to finish.  Looks like you have a good start.

    Now I like that method that Brian said about frying them after the smoker.

    I agree with RW, we probably should have tested them for you. Was the skin crispy after 30 min. in the oven?

    yes it was.  crispier than out of the smoker.  I have followed this same process except instead of smoking, I grilled.  The time in the oven does wonders to crisp them up and bake on the sauce.
