  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.

Found these to be REALLY tasty! They were not hot at all for my friends and family, I will definitely make these again.

These were excellent! Mine got a little overdone but that was my own fault. It's tempting to let them smoke longer than the recipe calls for but don't do it. They may not seem quite done but th...
