Whole Chicken Wings finally, brined and smoked

I have no problem with splits , but I really wanted the full wings , so I could lock them and smoke. All the places I go sell them split which is a better price as you are not buying the tip.
So I found some at Walmart. Little pricy but I am special and I wanted them ,lol
I have been saving all my pickle juice and as TNJAKE TNJAKE mentioned to me to give it a try , so into a bag with the juice and in the fridge for 14 hours . Flipping and rubbing when ever I thought of it.

Took them out and dried off, Than used one of the spices I received from an older throwdown. Called Turkey rub, I tasted it and it smelt like how I make my stuffing . So gave it a try, It was real nice

So after I dusted them up with the Turkey Rub I locked the wings ( folded them ) they went into the smoker for 1 hour and 10 minutes at 275- 300 deg. with some Mesquite

Mona's family showed up for the evening right at supper time so ran to the freezer and grabbed some burgers to throw on the grill also,
Some wanted no cheese on the burgers ( that's just crazy, lol )

Through the wings on to crisp up the skin a little more while the burgers were cooking

Last 5 minutes or so I coated half the wings in a jerk glaze I had open .
Everyone loved the wings and there was nothing left after the meal , so that was good ( not really I love having a few to snack on later, ha ha ) oh well. :emoji_laughing:

Here is the plated shot of supper.
The brine added a nice sweet and sharp tang to the meat , I will do that again but maybe leave in the brine even longer. And the rub I will try on other items also , loved the taste and the smell

Oh yes Mona whipped up a package of turkey gravy as she was doing up all the fixens , bacon, onions, tomatoes etc

( I like fried and raw onions on my burgers )

It was a great day and glad the family showed up and eat all my food, but that's what I really love . That and a perfect day in the yard

Thanks for staying around for a little ,

All looks really good. My parents never put cheese on the burgers when they grill so I get it. But if the burger is done right it doesn't have to have cheese...still I like a nice slice or 2 of cheese on mine.

Haven't done whole wings for a while. Might have to see if I can find some around here.

Thanks Brett for the comment

I guess it is an age thing as all 4 people that wanted no chees are in their 60's. LOL:emoji_wink::emoji_wink:
But for me like you, add the cheese , nothing wrong with that. For me the more the happier I am. Just like bacon

As for the whole wings , I like them better as it is a bigger piece of chicken. I know I could just eat more splits. And a waste to pay for the tips , but I not buying a hundred pounds at a time. I just like the whole wings :emoji_sunglasses:

Great looking food and yard!

I am doing wings tomorrow.

And I try to keep burgers in the freezer ready to go at any given time as well.

Wishing you a great weekend!
