Hey everyone, I swear the AKORNs were built to cook chicken wings. I’m not even kidding, these cookers are perfect for all the elements you need to make a good chicken wing and now with the Auto-Kamado it's just that much easier. Today what we are going to do is really try to combine three different techniques to make some delicious wings. We’re going to smoke them, get some of that old school chargrilled flavor on them, then try to use the air in the cooker along with some spray butter to get a fried effect on that skin. Very few things beat a great live fire cooked chicken wing and I really do hope you give these a shot because I was extremely happy with how they came out. This is a play on a high heat wing technique I came up with on the AKORN a couple of years ago so to avoid burning we’re just going to season with a salt dry brine in the beginning and add flavors at the end. I mention that now because it’s very important for this specific technique. Other than that, absolutely make it your own and let me know what you think of it.

    Place your chicken wings on a raised wire rack and season both sides with the salt, then place back in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours.
