  1. Heat a smoker to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) according to manufacturer's directions.
  2. Mix 1 tablespoon salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning in a small bowl to make dry rub. Sprinkle over chicken wings.
  3. Cook chicken wings in the preheated smoker until tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hour.
  4. Combine hot pepper sauce, butter, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and salt in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until butter is melted and sauce is smooth. Remove from heat.
  5. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  6. Transfer smoked wings to a large bowl; stir in 1/2 of the sauce until wings are evenly coated.
  7. Grill coated wings until skin is browned and starting to get crispy, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in remaining sauce until wings are well-coated.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I like to use hickory wood, but you can use whatever you have.

great recipe! came out a little salty for me though so I will be reducing that in the dry rub.

Made this yesterday and loved it, I really love having a lot of sauce on my wings. With this recipe it is not necessary and I always want to do my own grilled wings.

Very easy to follow and wings were amazing! I will definitely make again!

The best smoked wings ever! I will definitely make again.

These were a big hit! I couldn't help but modify the recipe a bit...I used smoked paprika in place of the Cajun seasoning, and I added a bit of garlic powder to the dry rub. I also brushed the w...

Even though I didn't get much of a smoke flavor, the great tasting rub and sauce made these wing delicious. Moist on the inside and crispy on the outside with just a hint of heat. I will try th...

I loved these wings! Great flavor. I used Walker & Son's Slap Ya Mama cajun seasoning. I cut back on the salt somewhat because the cajun seasoning has plenty in it. Followed the rest of the reci...
