Smoked Chicken Wing Help

Hello again BGE Community. I have been hooked since I got my Egg last week and yall's help has been crucial in getting me started successfully. I am having a bunch of guys over for Monday Night Football tonight and I want to show off my Large BGE that I have been bragging about so much.

I want to smoke some wings and drums today for them and time them about right to eat them when the game starts (730 central time). I have a bunch of good rubs that my buddy who convinced me to buy the egg already so I really just need help with times and temps. I have a grill extender but to not have a plate setter for indirect yet. If need to get the plate setter for indirect, I will but I think I am getting it for Christmas from my folks.

Thanks again folks!



  • BobbyB,

    Thanks for the recipes. I will give them a try sometime but I was just looking for a simple low and slow smoke recipe that I could try out. I prefer smoked wings (for healthier eating)without all the sauces. I just want a nice dry rub recipe that I can set it and forget it for now. Thanks again though!

    Rub em down with some Dizzy Dust and be done with it. Awesome stuff on chicken.
  • How long should I smoke them for and at what temperature? I have asked my folks if they are getting me a plate setter and they said no. So, I am going to get one today so that I can smoke them properly.

    I just need to know times and temps for the Egg and for Internal meat.

    Rub em down, use your raised grid and cook them direct at 400* for about 20-25 minutes per side.

    I only put a small amount of charcoal in the firebox. The idea is to have the heat, but to keep the wings as far from that heat as you can.

    You can also smoke them raised grid direct at around 275°F for about two hours, without turning them. They don't need a whole lot of wood chunks, maybe two small pieces. Enjoy the game.
  • Dr. BBq's Bloody Mary Wings have become my absolute favorites. Give them a try sometime.

    16 single joint chicken wings

    Bloody Mary Rub
    1 Tbs celery salt
    2 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp granulated garlic
    1 tsp brown sugar

    Bloody Mary Sauce
    1- 1/2 cup V-8 juice
    3 Tbs Worcestershire
    3 Tbs Tabasco Garlic Sauce
    juice of 1 lemon
    1 tsp salt
    prepared horseradish to taste (optional)

    Celery sticks
    Chilled Russian Vodka

    1 In a small bowl mix the rub ingredients. Sprinkle over the chicken wings as needed, coating evenly.
    2 Prepare the cooker direct at 350°F using cherry wood for flavor.
    3 Grill the wings turning often for 30 minutes.
    4 Meanwhile, mix the sauce ingredients together and set aside.
    5 Put the vodka in the freezer.
    6 Transfer the wings to an aluminum foil pan large enough to fit the wings in a single layer. Pour the sauce over the wings and return to the cooker.
    7 Cook for another 30 minutes turning the wings after 15 minutes to coat. If the pan goes dry, add a small amount of beer to keep it from burning.
    8 Remove the wings to a plate, and drizzle with the sauce if there is any left.
    9 Serve with celery sticks and shots of ice cold vodka.
