It’s a family tradition to make wings once a week and it’s something the whole family looks forward to! My family always uses Frank’s Hot Sauce and I wanted to see if I could come up with something similar with a fresh twist. They came out great!
- Hot Sauce:
- 2 lbs hot peppers of choice (I prefer Cayenne & Jalapeño)
- 2 cups White Vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 ½ tsp Onion Powder
- 1/8 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
- 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
- 1 teaspoon White Pepper
- 3 lbs raw Chicken Wings; tips removed
- 1 teaspoon Paprika
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Preheat smoker to 275°F.
- Heat a Dutch Oven over High heat. Using gloves, chop and de-seed the peppers, then add them to the pot, searing until blistered and tender. Stir in the remaining sauce ingredients and reduce the heat to low. Using an immersion blender, blend the sauce until smooth and simmer for 1 hour.
- In large bowl, combine the chicken wings, salt, pepper and paprika, tossing to coat. Layer the wings on the smoker grate and smoke for 1 hour. Flip and smoke an additional 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
- Add the wings to a large bowl and pour the sauce over top. Toss to coat and serve.
