I think this excitement took over the anticipation of trying my Smoked Old Bay Chicken Wings (and so it should)…but they were still very much enjoyed by all.
Our most recent Sunday Funday consisted of the adult children coming for a visit and stuffing our faces.
We will be expecting our first grandchild any day now, so this visit was filled with feeling lots of kicks from the little guy.
And if you can get the stamp of approval from a 38 week pregnant woman, I would say this recipe deserves an instant 5 star rating 😉
How to make Old Bay Smoked Chicken Wings
These are four pounds of jumbo split chicken wings.
Although I would highly recommend doubling it as these wings are highly addicting!
Toss the wings with olive oil, Old Bay seasoning, and hot sauce of your choice.
I used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.
Then place them on your smoker set to 250 degrees.
There are also instructions on baking them in the oven in the recipe card.
I love using hickory wood pellets on my Traeger grill/smoker, click below to order from Amazon!
Smoke the wings for two and a half hours total, flipping them halfway through.
The final step is tossing them in a spicy Old Bay butter!
Melt some butter and mix in more Old Bay and hot sauce.
And when the wings are fully cooked, toss in this mixture and serve.
The simplicity of these wings might have been my favorite part about this dish.
Just a few ingredients, but these Smoked Old Bay Chicken Wings sure brought the flavor!
