    Chicken wing ideas?

    Tomorrow I'll be smoking 6lbs of chicken wings (about 20 wings & tips, fairly large ones). I'm thinking of doing half in the traditional buffalo sauce since I love that. My kids don't care for spicy so I'm looking for suggestions as to what to do with the other 3lbs. Thanks!

    I love wings.

    This sounds a bit odd but I do this for the GF a lot.



    Sometimes a touch of white sugar.

      So you dry brine, then just sprinkle on unsweetened cinnamon (I assume) and ginger as you would any seasoning? Heavy? Light?


        Light, cinnamon comes thru strong. Just like another seasoning sprinkle on. I dont per mix them so I dont have a good ratio. just light on both.

        No dry brine but I do think it would be better if I did dry brine. Its normally a spur of the moment thing.


          MH's kalbi marinade is great on wings http://amazingribs.com/recipes/beef/...beef_ribs.html


            Try this sauce apply when wings are done, dunk em and back on for quick caramelization. Ingredients are estimates.
            • 1/3 cup maple syrup
            • 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
            • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
            • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
            • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
            • Harissa sauce or any hot sauce or skip if cooking for kids


              Last wings i made i hit them with slap yo mama and thats it. They were good


                It must be wing day, I'm doing some also. I'm just using something I have on hand that we love on shrimp, some Island wood fire grill marinade from Grill Mates. Will definitely be trying the sauce by Ernest next time with some srirachi.


                  I've done them with Sriracha, works perfectly.


                    Try soaking them for 2-6 hours in a simple marinade made with Italian dressing (that oily kind you buy in a clear plastic bottle) with a 1/4 cup of hot sauce. Marinade + wings + zip lock. Works great with thighs too. I love these when cooked on indirect heat on a charcoal grill. We do them this way at our hunt camp and they have a lot of flavor, but are mild enough for kids!

                      I think Huli-Huli sauce would make great wings - they're on my list.


                        Fish and Fowl rub from Everglades is great. Did some last night. Just coat them and smoke in orange wood.

                          Thanks for the tip Halldawg! I need to pick up some orange wood, it's one of the few left I haven't tried out.

                        I really like Meathead's recipe FWIW >> Buffalo Wings On The Grill


                        the DC Mumbo Sauce rawks!


                          try this for the little people dry brine than fry or bake until crispy than let them dunk my grand kids love this
                          Applesauce Barbeque Sauce
                          Applesauce gives this sauce a nice texture that coats well on meat. It has a sweet spicy, flavor that is excellent on chicken or pork. It may also be canned in sterile containers for later use, or for giving as gifts. Prep Time: approx. 10 Minutes. Cook Time: approx. 20 Minutes. Ready in: approx. 30 Minutes. Makes 3.5 cups (28 servings)

                          1 cup applesauce 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
                          ½ cup ketchup 1/2 teaspoon paprika
                          2 cups brown sugar ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
                          6 tablespoons lemon juice ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
                          In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix applesauce, ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice, salt, ground black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, cinnamon, and onion powder. Stirring frequently, bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat and use to baste the meat of your choice.

                          Papa bobs notes
                          Replace the applesauce with raspberry puree, cherry puree mango puree (raspberry and cherry works well) a really good dipping sauce for chicken fingers

                          add a chili pepper while simmering for the adult version, jalapeño, habanero what ever floats your boat I usually will take a fresh pepper and slit from tip to almost the stem end like a X than let it float for as long as you like than take it out or mince and leave it in wht ever your heat level is

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
