Pickle Smoked Chicken Wings
Updated: Jul 6
Smoked chicken wings have never been so good! Crispy and fall off the bone -these wings are easy to make and come loaded with flavor! The process is simple -we use the brine from our spicy pickles and utilize two of our favorite rubs to create a dynamite combination. All in this should take you around 3 hours, plenty of time for a quick snack or even weeknight treat! Try this smoked chicken wings recipe out and send us the pics -we would love to see them!
