What's this?

Wing night will never be the same when you kick them up with a slice of bacon.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pound chicken wings

  • 24 Ounce beer

  • 2 Teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • To Taste Traeger Cajun Shake

  • 1 Pound bacon

Steps

  • 1

    Trim the tips off of the wings and discard or set aside for homemade stock.
  • 2

    Cut the skin flap between the flat and the drummette so the wing stays a little more straight and is easier to wrap.
  • 3

    Place the wings in a large bowl and cover with the beer and red pepper flakes (if desired). Refrigerate for 12-24 hours before grilling.
  • 4

    Remove the wings from the brine and pat dry. Season liberally with Traeger's Cajun Shake.
  • 5

    Wrap each wing with a piece of bacon. You can secure with toothpicks, if necessary.
  • 6

    When ready to cook, start temperature on High (450+)
  • 7

    Place the wings directly on the grill grate, close the lid, and cook for 30 minutes.
  • 8

    Flip the wings and cook for an additional 30 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is fully cooked (at least 165 degrees F). Enjoy!
