Fruity Hot Wings
Fruity with a respectable amount of heat. Utterly moreish hot wings that can be prepared in the smoker or the oven
<a href="product/the-super-sauce/">Super Sauce</a>
Life's A Peach BBQ Sauce
Finely chopped chilli and spring onions to garnish
For the rub
Combine all the rub ingredients in a small bowl.
Add the chicken wings to an ample sized lidded container along with the Super Sauce. Put the lid on the container and shake well until the wings are coated evenly in sauce.
Leave to marinade for 1 hour.
Sprinkle the rub over the wings and shake the container again until the wings are evenly coated.
Cooking in the oven
Preheat the smoker to 180°C / ~360°F
Arrange the wings on a wire rack grill pan. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
Brush the wings on both sides with Life's a Peach BBQ sauce and return to the oven for a further 25 minutes or until the wings are well browned all over.
Remove from the oven, drizzle with the remaining Life's a Peach BBQ sauce and garnish with diced chilli and spring onions.
Cooking in the smoker
Preheat the smoker to 140°C / ~280°F.
Arrange the wings on a wire rack grill. Hot smoke for 1 hour using a fruit wood. I used cherry, but apple will do just fine.
Brush the wings on both sides with Life's a Peach BBQ sauce. Bring the smoker up to 160°C / 320°F.
Smoke for another hour or until the wings are well browned and crispy. If you're in doubt, check for an internal temp of 75°C / ~170°F.
Remove from the smoker, drizzle all over with the remaining Life's a Peach BBQ sauce and garnish with diced chilli and spring onions.
If you're preparing this recipe in the oven you can add a touch of smoke by substituting the paprika in the rub for smoked paprika or chipotle.
