So Sunday, while I was pre-making meals and cooking spaghetti squash in the slow cooker, this is what my husband was doing. This some of the best chicken I have eaten, so if you have a smoker, you should definitely try it.
He first had the idea to smoke wings when we went apple picking a few weeks back. We had stopped to eat, and the restaurant had smoked wings. So, after an internet search, he adapted this recipe from Extraordinary BBQ to fit his tastes, which include a little heat, so one of his modifications included the addition of some jalapeno peppers. I edited his recipe a bit, but this is mostly in his words.
Smoked Chicken and Wings
yield: 1 two to three pound chicken and about 40 wings
1 large jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil plus more to oil the chicken and wings
1 lemon, cut in quarters
1 medium onion, chopped
1 apple, cut in eighths
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large jalapeno, cut in half
optional: red pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, paprika
Rinse chicken and pat dry. Rub oil over entire chicken and wings.
