All the flavor of the smoker combined with the deep golden crunch of the deep fryer. Smoke-fried is the ultimate way to cook chicken wings.
Plain ‘ol smoked chicken wings are tasty, but you miss out on the crunchy, crispy goodness of deep frying. The solution? Smoke the wings, THEN fry them! Twice cooking the wings gives you all the great smoked flavor, with the ultimate texture. I take my wings one more step with a dry rub finish for a mega-savory boost.
For seasoning, I use my very own Hardcore Carnivore Meatchelada. It’s a chili lime rub that’s not too spicy, but is packed with earthy and rich chili flavor and REAL lime juice. Sprinkling this on at the end of the deep fry allows the seasoning to mingle with the last bubbles of hot oil. This coats the wings and adheres the seasoning to create a pow-packed flavor crust.
If you don’t currently have a deep fryer – don’t fear. You can use a dutch oven with a thermometer to monitor temperature. But, domestic deep fryers like this one are also fairly inexpensive. Peanut oil is recommended for the best result, but any vegetable or specialty frying oil will work too.
