Maple BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Wings
- 2lbs chicken wings
- 1 lb thin sliced bacon, cut in half
- 1/2 cup sweet BBQ sauce
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- Your favorite BBQ seasoning
Preheat your smoker to 300 degrees. This will ensure that the chicken wings are cooked through and crispy on the outside.
Season the chicken wings with your favorite BBQ seasoning. This will give the wings a great flavor and added depth. Be sure to season the wings evenly, making sure to get the seasoning into all the crevices of the wing.
Take half a piece of bacon and wrap it around the wing, making sure to cover as much of the wing as possible. Secure the bacon with a toothpick, pushing it through the wing and bacon to hold them together. Repeat this process with all the wings.
Re-season the wings with additional BBQ seasoning. This will add an extra layer of flavor and seasoning to the wings.
Place the wings in the smoker. Make sure to space the wings out evenly so that they cook evenly. Close the lid of the smoker and let the wings smoke for about an hour.
Once the wings reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees, remove them from the smoker and baste them with the Maple BBQ sauce. The sauce will add a sweet and savory flavor to the wings and will also help to create a nice glaze on the wings.
Return the wings to the smoker and close the lid. Allow the wings to cook until they reach an internal temperature of 175 degrees. This will ensure that the wings are fully cooked and safe to eat.
Once the wings are done, remove them from the smoker and allow them to rest for 3 minutes. This will allow the juices to redistribute, making the wings more juicy and flavorful.
Serve the wings hot and enjoy! These wings are perfect for game day, parties, or any occasion where you want to impress your guests with a delicious and unique dish.
