A Distant Memory

Behold...the best wings every made.

Honest to goodness these were the best wings I have ever eaten…. spicy (not hot) smoky, sweet and tender.  

I washed and seasoned them with lemon pepper, Miss Anna’s Caribbean Shake, Basil, and garlic powder.

Then I seared the wings for a few minutes on direct charcoal heat. After browning both sides I moved them to the opposite side for indirect cooking. I added two lumps of hickory wood to smoke them and shut the lid.  

The sauce was made with Franks Hot Sauce, butter, molasses, honey, maple syrup, and garlic.

After 20 minutes I rearranged the wings a bit for even cooking and returned the lid for another 20 minutes.

Gigi does not like HOT spicy so I cut the Franks with butter and sweetness. The Miss Anna’s was used sparingly and it added just enough kick.  

The wings were good naked but the sauce was too good to turn down.

No celery or salad dressing for these wings. That is for girly men anyway.

It seems to me those could be packed in dry ice and shipped...well, almost anywhere.
