This week we are doing Jim Beam and Coke Glazed Chicken Wings in the smoker.

If you’ve been following me, you know I have been on quite a chicken wing kick lately…and most of the sauces have some sort of liquor in them.

Every time I go to the liquor store by my house I tell the lady what I am cooking with it.

But she probably just thinks I’m an undercover alcoholic who makes up recipe ideas as an excuse πŸ˜‰ !

Keeping with this theme this week with bourbon wings πŸ™‚

How to Make Jim Beam and Coke Wings

The chicken wings soaked overnight in Jim Beam and Coke.

Once I discarded the liquid from the bag. I tossed in some brown sugar until evenly coated.

Using tongs I layed the wings on a baking sheet.

Then seasoned with kosher salt, pepper, ground red pepper for some heat, and garlic powder on both sides.

This is 6 pounds of split chicken wings, which is enough to feed either 6 people…or just my husband πŸ˜‰

Jim Beam and Coke Glazed Chicken Wings

I smoked these in our Traeger Smoker for 2 and a half hours at 250 degrees, and I turned them halfway through.

I love using the Signature Blend pellets.

You could do these in the oven at 425 for 45 minutes also.

I would not recommend grilling them over an open flame since they’ve been soaking in alcohol for 24 hours, that just seems like a bad, bad idea.

Jim Beam and Coke Glazed Chicken Wings

I brushed some of the glaze on the Jim Beam and Coke Wings during the last few minutes of smoking to get them all nice and caramelized.

The glaze is Jim Beam, Coke, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, and some kosher salt and pepper.

Bring this mixture to a boil and then simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, whisking occasionally.

Serve with additional sauce on the side πŸ™‚
