How to Smoke Chicken Wings

Sauce ’em if you like, but real wood smoke is all the flavor your wings need.

Let's get grilling


Season wings thoroughly with BBQ rub to taste.


Build a fire with Kingsford® Charcoal on one side of the grill, creating an indirect zone away from the fire.


Cover the grill and adjust vents to maintain a temperature of 275˚F. Add wood chunks into the charcoal, or place a smoker tube filled with pellets onto the grill.


Lay out the chicken wings on the grill over indirect heat, keeping a slight amount of space between each wing.


Cook for 75–90 minutes, or until the chicken wings reach an internal temperature of 165˚F. You can also baste with your favorite sauce and allow wings to caramelize over direct heat for the last 1–2 minutes.


Remove from the grill and serve.
