Smoked/Fried Asian Chicken Wings

YIELDS: 8 Servings PREP TIME: 10 mins COOK TIME: 1 hr 30 mins TOTAL TIME: 1 hr 40 mins 

2 lbs chicken wings
1 tbsp Durty Girl Bloody Mary Rub
1 tbsp Jody’s Asian Persuasion Rub
1 gallon peanut oil for frying
Tools 
Smoker 
Small bowl 
Large pot 
Instant read thermometer

  1. Preheat Recteq Pellet Grill to 250°F. I used the Ultimate Blend pellets as my fuel. (Mixture of white oak, red oak, and hickory.)
  2. Combine both rubs and set 1 tablespoon aside for later.
  3. Season wings with 1 tablespoon of rub combo and smoke in Recteq for 1-1 ½  hours.
  4. Preheat oil to 375°F in a deep pot. I used the RT-G450 Gas Cooker from Recteq.
  5. Fry wings until an internal temperature of 170°F has been reached or until they are as crispy as you like ‘em!
  6. The wings will float when they are ready.
  7. Remove from oil, place on a drying rack and season with remaining rub. Let them rest for 5 minutes and enjoy!
