    I like to call these Smoked Buffalo Wings but in memory of Gary I have renamed them "Scarbelly Wings" because he loved them so much. I love Buffalo Wings but I hate when they are over-sauced and sloppy like you get in most restaurants, so I decided to put the sauce on the inside so as not to get it all over my hands and face. I have done these quite a few times and they always come out great.

    I inject them with a combo of Creole Butter and Franks Hot Wing Sauce mixed about 1:2 and rub the sauce all over them

    Then I sprinkle Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning all over them

    And into the smoker at about 300* 

    With some TBS provided by a couple of chunks of hickory

    Times have varied from 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, I just let them go until the skin starts to get crispy and they look like this

    Crispy but juicy, spicy with a little heat

    Thanks for looking.

    THANKS Harley!


    When I first started getting into smoking meat I read a lot about injections and it just hit me, inject Buffalo Sauce into wings, it just has to be good so I tried it and have been hooked ever since. I don't even want to go to Hooters again.

    Seriously good looking! I wonder if you first brined them in the injection sauce for 6 hours before doing all of the above?

    I don't know if that would change much being wings are so small and these are already really infused with a lot of flavor and heat but it does give me an idea for split breasts, I think it would really work with those. Guess I'm gonna have to try it.

    Nice job on the wings; they look fantastic.

    I never would have thought to inject wings; such a great idea.
  12. Dave thanks for the info& pictures, thats the problem I have with wings. I am going to try your way, injecting looks like a better way to go.   Walt

    Hmmm, would have never thought to inject wings, I like the idea of less sloppiness and the crispy skin.
    This is on my "got to try it" list.
