Cut the tips off wings and discard. Cut each wing into two pieces through the joint, giving you a meaty “drumette” and a “flat”. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and pour the oil over the chicken
Make the rub: In a small mixing bowl, combine the paprika, sugar, salt, black pepper, cayenne, onion powder, granulated garlic, and celery seed.
Sprinkle over the chicken and toss gently with your hands to coat the wings.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Grill the wings for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the skin is crisp and golden brown and the chicken is cooked through, turning once halfway through the cooking time.
Make the sauce: Melt the butter over medium-low heat in a small saucepan. Add the jalapeños and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the cilantro & hot sauce.
Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat. Enjoy!
