Santa will wish that you had left him a plate of these smokin’ hot wings on Christmas Eve! Let me tell you, they are some kind of good, especially dipped in a little of my Smokin’ Hot Chix BBQ Sauce!
I love chicken, and for me, it’s always a good day to smoke wings. They don’t require a lot of preparation, they cook fast, and the meat is so tender it falls off the bones!
I do like to brine mine overnight, but you don’t have to. I coat mine in a little olive oil, then season with a dry rub, Lowry’s, or Tony Cachere’s. I also hit this batch with a little Tone’s Nashville Hot seasoning, because we do like it spicy around here!
I smoked these for about 2 hours at 225F, removed from the heat, wrapped in foil for about 30 minutes, then crisped in the air fryer at 390F for 5 minutes. Now, if you don’t have an air fryer no worries, just put the wings in the oven at 400F for about 5-7 minutes. You just want to get the skin crispy.
Plate those little flappers and serve while they’re piping hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
I guarantee you’ll love these wings! They are smokin’ hot!
