    Not knowing what kind of smoker you have i can't help there.

     Cook to an internal of 160° at the joints

    Now you should be almost done with the wings. I smoke mine for maybe 2 hours or so but I do watch the temp in the thickest part of the wings. Like Bob said 160°ish.

    Same here about 2 hours, then on a hot grill for a couple of minutes to crisp the skin up, then a bath in Frank's hot sauce. Hope yours came out well.

    Are you burning straight wood in your smoker? What kind of air intakes are on your firebox? Does the exhaust stack have a flapper valve to adjust?

    I was using charcoal, which i dont think i'm using again. For some reason there are no air intakes on the smoker or a flapper on the exhaust. I think im going to have to get someone to add them for me. And from now on i'm only burning wood.

    You will need adjustable air intakes on the fire box to be able to control the fire. A flapper on the exhaust really isn't needed. Being where your at with all the woods around you straight wood would be the way to go and much cheaper too.

    I saw the pics of his smoker but it didn't show close enough pics to see if it had the things I mentioned
