Preheating the Big Green Egg

To get that crispy chicken skin, dry the wings out before putting them on the smoker. For this cook we just lightly salted the dry chicken wings then placed them on the BGE using the raised grid.

We turned the wings over about 40 minutes in to the cook and then took them off around the 90 minute mark. The skin is nice and golden brown and crispy. Full of smoky flavor!

We then mixed the purée with the melted butter and tossed the wings to coat evenly. We added some chopped peanuts to give it some extra crunch (optional but adds to the delicious-ness!).
