We can never get enough wings at our house! Especially if they are grilled or smoked. 

Every time we go out to eat and wings are on the menu, my boyfriend and I have to try them. My absolute favorite are salt and vinegar wings from a local restaurant here in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, Boulder Tap House! They are absolutely fantastic!

The most unique wings I've tried were PB and Jelly wings at Treylor Park restaurant in Savannah, GA. If you're ever in either city, make sure to stop by and give the wings a try.

Another thing we love at our house is grilling in the summertime. Living in MN, nice weather for grilling and smoking is limited, so we do it at least weekly through the spring, summer and fall to get our fix.

The recipe I'm sharing with you today is easy enough for anyone who is new to smoking chicken. We used all drums, but you can use a combo of drums and flats, or just flats. It's up to you!

I personally love flats better, but let's be honest, I'll eat any wing, any time! We coated these delicious smoked wings with BBQ sauce, but they'd be great tossed in your favorite wing sauce, or like my picky daughter, just seasoned with no sauce at all.

What are the ingredients and things you need for this recipe?


  • chicken flats, drumettes or both
  • BBQ sauce
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • applewood 
  • charcoal


Recipe tips:

  • If you have extra time, you can brine the wings in a simple salt and water solution or a more flavorful solution. It will help make your chicken more juicy, tender and flavorful. Brine for 24 hours before smoking.
  • If you're using a gas or charcoal grill instead of a traditional smoker, push all your coals to one side of the grill, or along the edges. You want them to cook on indirect heat.
  • Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven.
