Our Hunka Hunka Burnin’ Wings are the perfect crowd pleaser!
You will need:
· 1 dozen chicken wings
· Favorite chicken brine (optional)
· Smokin’ Elvises BBQ Rub and All Purpose Seasoning
· Smokin’ Elvises Competition BBQ Sauce
· 1 tbl of butter
· 1 tsp of Chipotle Powder (optional)
· 1 tsp of Cayenne Pepper (optional)
· Pinch of salt
Start by brining the chicken wings for 3-4 hours. You don’t have to do this part, but your wings will be less likely to dry out while cooking.
30 minutes to an hour before your wings are done brining start your smoker and bring it to a temperature of 275.
Take the wings out of the brine and dust liberally with our Smokin’ Elvises BBQ Rub and All Purpose Seasoning. Let the wings sit for about 15 minutes so they can soak up all that awesome rub and then place them on the smoker. We do ours on the top rack so they get the most smoke possible. They will only take about 45 minutes or until they reach an internal temp of 165.
While the wings are cooking prepare the sauce.
Take ½ cup of Smokin’ Elvises Competition BBQ, 1 tbl of butter, a pinch of salt and combine them in a non-reactive sauce pan with 2 tbl of water and heat very slowly. The key here is to warm the sauce through and melt the butter into it, but DO NOT BOIL the sauce. Whisking constantly will help keep the sauce from coming to a boil. If you boil the sauce the flavor will turn bitter and you should just do a new batch. If you like your wings spicy (and we do) add the Chipotle and Cayenne pepper while whisking.
Once your wings come off the smoker toss them with the warmed sauce until coated.
Serve with some fire roasted corn and your favorite ranch or blue cheese dressing and you have a feast fit for The King!
