Smoke Fried Chicken Wings

  • Author: Jess Pryles



3 lb chicken wing pieces

48 oz frying oil (or the minimum required in your deep fryer)

1/3 cup Hardcore Carnivore Meatchelada seasoning

2 teaspoons salt


  1. Heat a smoker or pellet grill to run at 250-275f.
  2. Sprinkle the salt and about 1/3 of the meatchelada seasoning over the wings, then toss them to coat. Lay them in the smoker and cook until they reach an internal temperature of 145-150f. This will take about an hour.
  3. As the wings are nearing finishing smoking, heat the fryer/oil. It needs to be at least 350f, preferably 375f. If you are frying in batches, allow the oil to come back up to temperature between each batch.
  4. Place the wings into the fryer, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the wings have turned a deep golden crisp color. Drain briefly, then sprinkle over remaining seasoning, tossing to coat. Serve wings immediately.
