If you want great chicken wings, check out this post.

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/119306/scarbelly-wings-buffalo-style

I had friends in from Montana who have been very kind to me. I wanted to make an appetizer I was sure would be wonderful and Scarbelly Wings came to mind immediately. They are a great wing named after a great SMF member who is no longer with us.

I have changed the recipe marginally to meet tamer Canadian sensibilities.

I mixed 1/4 cup of Cajun Injection Creole Butter with 1/4 cup of Frank's Red Hot sauce. This is less hot sauce than the original recipe. I injected some of the sauce into each of 15 wing segments.



I poured the remaining sauce over the wings.


I used my own Creole Seasoning (see http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/253192/creole-burnt-ends) instead of the commercial seasoning in the original recipe. I sprinkled that over the wings.



I used a hotter temperature in my pellet smoker than the original recipe. I preheated it to 350 F and cooked the wings for 50 minutes, turning once.


Here is the finished product.


The Verdict

These were a great hit. There is a reason Scarbelly Wings are a staple on SMF. The skin was crisp, the spice was warm but not burning and the chicken was moist.

Thanks, Red! I wish I did come up with these, they are brilliant!

As for people from Montana, I have been curling there and they have come here. I have met nothing but kind people of great wit and intelligence. No argument from me that they are nice!

I wish you a very merry Christmas and hope there is much joy in your New Year!

One of our favorite recipes!

Looks great Disco!

RIP Gary!
Sometimes I think we forget how much there is to learn on SMF and take it for granted. I love this smoke and think it is a great memorial to Gary.

Oh hey, these look tasty. This is a different method than what I use (injecting sauce before cooking), I'll have to give this a try this spring. My wife and kids love BBQ'd chicken.

I think you will like them. There is a reason they are so popular on the forums.

Not trying to drop in on a old thread but i was searching for a wing recipe for new years and i just found it! I'm doing half with franks and the creole butter injection and then the other half with sweet baby rays and the creole butter ( as an experiment)
