Tomorrow I will he smoking about 5 dozen wings for the first time. Actually it's the first thing I will have ever smoked. I was going to inject creole butter and hot sauce but I have decided to just do a dry rub. I think I'll use hickory chips instead of mesquite. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks and wish me luck.

They'll sit like this for about 12-14 hours and then be ready for smoke. I plan on smoking for about 2 hours at 225-230 and then about 10-15 mins at 250 to crisp as much as possible.

Well the wings turned out ok I guess. I couldn't get the temp to where it needed to be so after two hours I put them in the oven to finish. I guess I'll just learn with trying.
Another thing is some people said they were a bit too smoky. If I would only put a few chips in would that only give it a small smoke flavor? Any tips with that? Thanks.
