BBQ Game DayChicken Wings and Thighs

Difficulty 2/5
Prep time 3 hrs

Cook time 50 mins
Serves 6-8

Hardwood Cherry

Score big with this chicken. These wings and thighs are generously seasoned with our chicken rub giving it some citrus spice and then smoked on sweet cherry wood for some deep dark meat flavor.


8-10 chicken thighs

20-30 chicken wings

1/2 cup olive oil


When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Place thighs and wings in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and Traeger Chicken rub and mix well. Cover bowl and refrigerate for 3 to 8 hours.  

Place chicken directly on the grill grate and cook for 45 minutes. Check the internal temperature of the chicken, it is considered done at 165℉ however, a finished temperature of 175 to 180℉ results in a better texture in dark meat.  

Once the finished temperature is reached, remove chicken from the grill and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
