Crispy Smoked Chicken Wings “Delicious”

Smoked Crispy Wings

Crispy Smoked Chicken Wings boast layers of flavor and add more flare to an already delicious dish and in this recipe, you will learn how to make the best. We all can agree that chicken wings are a go-to dish for any gathering. There is a way to make wings even better, smoked.

We teach how to conquer both worlds, get the smokey flavor from your smoker, and crisp the skin with direct heat to make amazing smoked, crispy chicken wings.

Crispy Smoked Chicken Wings – Let’s Add Some Flavor

If you want flavorful crispy smoked chicken wings, and who doesn’t, a charcoal ( smoker )grill or pellet smoker is one of the best methods to cook them. These cooking vessels will impart loads of flavor into the wings but there is one problem. Because smokers cook low and slow, the wings will cook and be juicy, but the skin will not be crisp. To crisp the wings’ skin, you need high and direct heat cooking.

The Key to Delicious Smoked Crispy Wings

The key to juicy, delicious, crispy wings is to use a smoker or grill to do the slow cooking, flavoring, and tenderizing. The low cooking temperatures will allow the wings’ fat to melt slowly without drying them while infusing smoke flavor. Then the last piece of the puzzle is to finish cooking the wings in high heat to crips the wings’ skin. Use the broil function in your kitchen oven or crank up the grill’s heat.

Because this is a two-step recipe, the wings are smoked to a lower temperature to avoid overcooking them when searing them in high heat. We recommend cooking the wings to about 175 degrees before crisping the high heat but you can go up to 185 degrees.

Use Stella’s Savory Delight. The wings will get a beatify color and texture with a nice balanced smokey flavor that will pair well with just about any sauce. If you rather have a bit of heat, Stella’s Gypsy is a great choice.

Lastly, using cooking oil will help crisp the wings, and don’t forget to pat them dry before seasoning.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Pat Dry the Wings!!!. This is very important
  2. Preheat your grill or smoker to 250 but not higher than 275°F and prepare it for indirect smoking.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with olive oil until they are evenly coated.
  4. In a separate small bowl, combine salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to taste. Mix well. For REAL FLAVOR, use Stella’s Gypsy or Stella’s Savory Delight to eliminate all the mixing and guesswork. Our blends are already balanced to season your dish to perfection.
  5. Season the chicken wings, ensuring they are evenly coated on all sides. ( with Gypsy Or Savory Delight )
  6. Place the seasoned chicken wings on the smoker grate, ensuring they are not touching each other.
  7. Close the smoker and let the wings smoke for around 1 hour, or until they reach an internal temperature of 175°F not higher than 185 degrees Fahrenheit.
  8. Once the wings are cooked, remove them from the smoker and let them rest for a few minutes.
  9. For a crispy texture, you can finish the wings on a high-heat grill or in the oven. Preheat the grill or oven to 400°F (200°C) and cook the wings for an additional 5-10 minutes, flipping them once, until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  10. For extra crispy wings use the broil function in your kitchen oven and broil the wings for 5 minutes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit or until they reach the desired texture.
  11. Remove the wings from the heat and let them cool slightly. Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce on the side for dipping.
