Sweet and smoky chicken wings

Smoked Thai Sweet Chili Wings Recipe

There is no doubt! Everybody agrees that the best way to prepare chicken wings is to smoke them. It you want to add a completely different flavour to chicken wings, try this recipe. The result will be sweet and smoky wings with a bit of heat!


2 Pounds chicken wings

1 Tbsp salt

2 Tsp garlic powder

1 Tsp ground ginger

1 Tsp ground black pepper

1 Tsp ground cumin

2 Tsp dried chili flakes

1 Cup Thai sweet chili spring roll dipping sauce


If desired, cut each chicken wing into three portions: drumette, middle portion and tip. Discard the tip of the winds and place the other portions in a large bowl.

In a bowl, mix together the salt, garlic powder, ginger, black pepper, cumin and chili flakes. Sprinkle the wings with the seasoning, so they are evenly coated.

Set up the smoker to 250°F using wood bisquettes of choice.

Lay wings on smoker racks and smoke for about 2-2 ½ hours or until cooked through.

Remove wings from the smoker and toss with the Thai sweet chili dipping sauce. Serve.
