  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 lb chicken wings, cut into drumettes and flats

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Rub:

  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 lb chicken wings, cut into drumettes and flats

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Preparation

Rub: In a small bowl, mix together baking powder, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne.

Rinse chicken wings and pat dry with paper towels. Place wings in a large bowl and sprinkle on rub, tossing to evenly coat.

Set a wire rack inside an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Arrange wings in a single layer leaving a little space between each wing. Place baking sheet with wings in refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight.

When ready to cook, start Traeger on Smoke with lid open until fire is established (4-5 minutes). Preheat with lid closed, 10 to 15 minutes.

Smoke wings for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, increase temperature to 350 degrees F and roast for 45 to 50 minutes.

Transfer wings to a large bowl. Add sauce and toss to thoroughly coat wings.

Transfer to a platter and serve immediately with carrot sticks, celery sticks, blue cheese, ranch or desired dipping sauces. Enjoy!
