Here are my popular recipes for grilled and smoked wings. These recipes are next level for celebrating ant your next super bowl party. Here are a few general tips for smoking your wings-

  • Always remove moisture to encourage crispier skin.
  • Use some baking powder to help absorb extra moisture (this is a great hack).
  • Always add a BBQ dry rub to your wings and add your BBQ sauce at the end to prevent burning.
  • Total cook time for wings can vary. Cook until a minimum of 165 F. (but they taste better after 180 F.).
