How To Smoke Chicken Wings
Chicken wings are typically not a traditional smoked meat due to the popularity of frying chicken wings and coating them in a buffalo sauce. Fried chicken wings only take 6 minutes to cook compared to 2 hours to smoke them. The only restaurants that invest the time to smoke chicken wings are barbecue restaurants that have access to large smokers and understand the complex taste of smoked meat. The smoked chicken wings recipe below will teach you how to smoke the chicken wings in a step by step process that makes it easy for an amateur who has never smoked meat before. Feel free to use any store bought rub seasoning or craft your own with ingredients you find around the house. See below for a great this recipe that can't be recreated in a fryer!

Smoked Chicken Wings Recipe Directions
Smoked chicken wings take about 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours to smoke throughout. If you don't have a meat thermometer, a way to tell if the chicken is done is to poke it deeply with a knife, if the juices run clear and not pink, the chicken is done. We always recommend using a meat thermometer in conjunction with our meat temperature chart to make sure you remove all meats from the smoker at the prefect temperature.
