Updated: Jan 7, 2021
This recipe is for Pickle Brined Chicken wings. There's no better way to make wings than to Pickle Brine then smoke for an amazing tangy and flavor and some nice crunch.
Baking sheet w/cooling rack
Add your chicken and Pickle Juice to the Briner Bucket or another food safe container. Put the bucket in the refrigerator for a 2-3 hours.
Get your grill up to 350 degrees with the smoking wood of your choice. Add your heat deflectors because this will be an indirect cook.
When your wings are done brining, be sure to rinse then and dry them thoroughly. At this point you can continue with the cooking process or you can put them on a cooling rack and put them in the refrigerator uncovered for 24 hours to dry out the skin even more.
Smoke Your Wings
Once your grill is up to a stable 350 degrees you can add your wings. This cook is about 45 minutes total. At the halfway point, be sure to flip your wings and move them around the grill if you have hot spots.
If you like to sauce your wings, be sure to do this as soon as you take them off the grill. The heat from the wings will allow the sauce to tack up nicely.
Wings don't need time to rest, so eat up and enjoy!
