Smokafried Wings Recipe

Smokafried Wings Recipe

While I was visiting in Texas, Matt Pittman from Meat Church shared a recipe that his family loves – T-bird’s Smokafried Wings. The recipe is really simple – but it makes a smoky, crispy, juicy and delicious chicken wing! Matt started with wing sections – both drumettes and flats – then he liberally seasoned them with his Meat Church Holy Gospel BBQ Rub. Since we were in Texas, Matt kept the smoking process true to his home state. We smoked the chicken wings on his offset stick burner over Post Oak wood. He ran his cooker at a steady 275 the entire time. Once the wings hit 175 internal, Matt took them off the pit. It takes 45 minutes – 1 hour for the wings to hit that target internal temp. The wings are completely done at this point, but Matt likes to flash-fry his wings after he smokes to really get the outside crispy. Matt fired up his Cajun Works Fryer with peanut oil to 350 degrees – and he dropped the smoked wings right in the hot grease for a quick fry. It took about 2 minutes for the wings to get crispy. So Matt scooped them out and lightly seasoned them with his Meat Church Holy Gospel BBQ Rub one more time. These Smokafried wings were delicious. And this recipe was super simple. No breading, no sauce – just seasoning and wings. But you could really get creative with the rubs you use and even make a great sauce to toss the wings in after cooking. Print

    Sounds good.

    Watched the video and reviewed the recipe… they look awesome!!!! I have a buddy that uses the fryer post smoke and the wings turn out amazing!!! Thanks Malcom and Matt!

  3. Michael says:

    Video is awesome, as always, but perhaps the best part is watching Matt take the meat off the flat at timestamp 3:20. How have I never known to do it like this?! Life changing. 🙂

    These wings are dope!

  5. Joe says:

    Don’t have a deep fryer can you cook those in an open pan over a barbecue pit

  6. Bob Barron says:

    I am going to make this recipe with duck wings. I can already taste them!

  7. Jason says:

    Malcom, have you ever tried this with an air frier? I did your smoked party wings recipe (used crystal hot sauce in the marinade) and air fried a few to see how they would taste and have to say they were incredible! Haven’t tried breaking out the deep frier for them yet.

  8. Jon says:

    There was a place in Chicago, now closed down (Barn & Co), that made the best wings I’ve ever had. I’ve now tried out this recipe a few times and it’s damn near a spot on match. Malcom, Matt, you two are life savers. Thanks for the tips!

  9. Tyler says:

    Would the fryer take away any of the smoked flavor?

  10. Frank says:

    12 lbs of wings? Is that a typo? Do I cut the recipe into 1/4ths and use 3 oz of rub instead of the 1.5 cups?

  11. Elizabeth Tepovich says:

    How dare you, sir. How DARE you introduce me to another recipe that’s so delicious that now my family wants me to make it all the time.

    Made 8 pounds of these bad boys on my Weber Smokey mountain. Oh my lanta. They’re amazing on their own but the crisp skin makes all the difference. Sensational!

  12. Alan Laurentano says:

    I love this recipe. Make them all the time and my guests LOVE them! Ib use Holy Gospel and Voodoo from Meath Church. Come out perfect every time.

  13. Cole says:

    Made these exactly as the recipe says and then tossed them in Heath Riles sweet bbq sauce and they were the best wings I’ve ever had.

  14. John McClure says:

    Can you use this same method for chicken breast??

  15. Phenomenal, I like to glaze them up as well and throw them on the grill afterwards. Adds a little extra crisp and caramelizes the sauce a little bit
