Remmy's Spiced-Out Wings

This is one of my favorite wing dishes.  It consists of a few basic ingredients.  But make no mistake, they produce a very bold flavor on wings!

We'll start with what you'll need.  The following is the recipe for almost 90 wings.


  • Chicken wings (about 90)
  • 5 tbsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. chile powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. sage
  • 2 oz. fruit juice (cherry, apple, pomegranate, grape, etc.)
Start by cutting wings into individual pieces. 

Mix dry rub ingredients in bowl and mix well.  

Apply dry rub to wings and rub thoroughly.

Place wings in a Ziploc bag and pour fruit juice into bag.  Lock the bag and then proceed to rub the juice all over the wings.  Let these marinade for at least 6 hours.  I usually let them go overnight.  Once you're ready to start cooking, take these puppies right out of the bag and place them onto the smoker.  Smoke the wings for 1.5 hours at 300-325F (350F if you want them really crispy).  My favorite wood to use for wings are apple or cherry woods.  Maple will work, too.  Anything that's mild, as you do not want to over-smoke these with a more pungent wood such as mesquite.

These are fantastic without sauce!
