Before I get started with the wings I wanted to share a link that shows just how simple it is to turn your gas grill into a smoker.
If you are as lucky as I am to have a awesome wife and daughter then you may already have a smoker. If not and you like smoked foods do yourself a favor and go buy one! They make them for just about every budget.
On to the main event! The very first thing you need to do is get a beverage. Don't skip this step because smoking foods can take a long time and we need to stay hydrated. I grabbed a beer this particular day because well I like beer. Gather some chicken wings and give them a quick rinse. After the shower I put them between some paper towels to dry them a bit. The next step is key. Poke holes in the wings. I use a kabob stick but a fork should work too. The holes will allow your seasoning and smoke to penetrate the skin!
Two hours later when we open the door what should we see??
Here is a close up of what I am looking for!
One could stop here and start slamming some wings but I like to blast them on a hot grill for a few mins to finish them off!
That's it. Quick recap: Chicken wings rinsed, poked, rubbed, smoked then grilled! I know it sounds like a lot for wings but give it a try I promise they will be some of the best you have ever had. If not, you messed something up! :) Serve with blue cheese and celery or whatever you like...
