  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings flats and drumettes separated, tips discarded or saved for making chicken broth
  • Your favorite rub I used Albukirky Seasoning's Green Chile Rub
  • Canola oil for frying


  • Fire up your smoker for 225 F. Use any wood you like. I used Jack Daniel's whiskey barrel chunks because I wanted a good, noticeable smoke flavor. Use a lighter wood if you want your wings to be a little less smoky.
  • Toss the wings in the seasoning.
  • Place the wings onto the smoker and smoke for 2 hours. No need to rotate or flip them.
  • When done, remove from the smoker. You can deep fry them immediately or freeze them for thawing and frying later.
  • To fry, heat canola oil to 350 F.
  • Working in batches, add the wings and fry for 1-2 minutes or until they are the desired color.
  • Let cool slightly. Serve tossed with your favorite sauce and your favorite dipping sauce on the side.
  • Optional: Toss the wings onto a hot grill for 1 minute after saucing them to set the sauce.
