Let's get grilling

1 Stir all brine ingredients together until salt and sugar are dissolved. Brine wings in a neutral flavored brine (salt, sugar and garlic) overnight.
2 Heat Masterbuilt Gravity Series to 225°F. Add wings to the middle rack. Spread wings out so they are not touching so smoke can penetrate evenly throughout the wings.
3 Make Sweet Auburn Chili Sauce 5 minutes before serving wings.
4 Make slurry by mixing ¼ cup water and the cornstarch, mix well so it’s consistent.
5 Sauté garlic with vegetable oil over low to medium heat in a saucepan for about 1 to 2 minutes (be careful not to overly brown).
6 Increase heat and stir constantly to avoid burning. Once sauce comes to a slight boil stir in a ½ teaspoon of the slurry at a time to thicken to your preferred thickness and stickiness. (I prefer a corn syrup consistency.)
7 Hold sauce over low heat.
8 Once wings reach an internal temp of 165°F, about 1.5–2 hours, bring the smoker to 600°F and sear wings on the Masterbuilt grate to crispen skin.
9 Toss wings in Sweet Auburn BBQ Chilli Sauce.
10 Top with diced green onions or fresh cilantro and serve with a wedge of lime. Squeeze lime over wings upon serving.
