Smoked Chicken Wings

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"This easy-to-prepare recipe is a surefire winner for your next party. Perfect for watching the game with friends! I use an offset smoker for this recipe, but indirect heat in a 22 1/2 kettle grill works fine too."

I absolutely love wings of all varieties and smoked wings are at the top of my list. I use the Traeger for this very often and it's simple and so very yummy.

These were excellent! I smoked two different wing recipe's last weekend and they were both good but this one was my favorite. I wouldn't change a thing. I took the leftovers to work the next day...

overall a very good wing for my personal wing I like a little more heat but that is just my taste , but it was a good recipe for anybody !!!!

real good recipe, cook time should be about 1.5 hours at 250.
