Wings Greatest Hits Recipe
« on: July 16, 2017, 09:42:43 PM »
This recipe is a compilation of a bunch of different recipes that I read in this forum. This is only my 2nd smoke in the #1. This transition to Lazy Q is killing me. Shouldn’t great smoked meat be more trouble to prepare?!
I rinsed the wings, patted them dry, and covered them with ordinary yellow mustard (not for flavor but to hold the rub). I spread them out on a cookie sheet, dusted them on both sides with my favorite rub (from Charlie’s meat market, Memphis, TN), then threw them in a Ziploc to sit in the fridge for 3 hours.
Sprayed the racks with PAM
I smoked them for 1 hr. at 250 degrees (outside temp = 85 deg). A lot of people recommended cherry for the wood. The only cherry that I had on hand is the size of rough sawdust. I measured out 3/4 oz. and it was a lot more than I normally use so I didn’t add any more. I made a small trough of aluminum foil to hold the sawdust.
After 1 hr., I took them out and mixed them up in honey and BBQ sauce. I microwaved the honey and sauce ahead of time to make them easier to blend. I have 30 wings and used about 4 oz of honey and the same of BBQ sauce.
I smoked them for another 1.25 hrs. I then took them to the grill (on high) and charred the outside for about 2 minutes per side.
They were cooked perfectly but they needed some spice. My wife and I used Rendezvous seasoning and my daughter used Slap Ya Mama. I am very pleased with the end result! Next time, I will use more rub in the marinade step. Otherwise, I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m amazed at how the smoker retains so much moisture in the meat. Please give me your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks!

I cooked wings again this weekend, tweaked the recipe, and may have made my best wings ever! I marinaded them for 4 hours in Wickers BBQ sauce/marinade.  I placed them on a cookie sheet and dusted them with my favorite rib rub. This time I used 2.5 oz. of hickory in the smoker after reading someone here that preferred the smokier flavor (I agree). Smoked them for 1 hr @ 235 deg. Took them out and mixed them in a bowl with warm Sweet Baby Ray's sauce, honey, and siracha. Back in the smoker for another 1.25 hrs. Then I put them on a pre-heated/high gas grill for less than 2 minutes to crisp the skin. They didn't need anything else! I love the wings that my #1 produces!!
