Indulge in the irresistible flavors of our Smoked Chicken Wings with Ritabeata’s Sweet Virginia Love BBQ Sauce. These wings are a mouthwatering delicacy, featuring a delightful blend of American cuisine and savory smokiness. Prepared by the talented author, Rita Witte, these wings are the perfect balance of sweet and savory.
The journey begins with a generous brine, made from a mixture of water, salt, brown sugar, black peppercorns, and Guajillo whole dried peppers. The wings soak in this flavorful bath for a minimum of 4 hours, allowing them to absorb the delicious essence of the brine.
Next, the wings are gently smoked in a smoker preheated to 225°F. Slow and steady is the key here, as the wings take their time to reach an internal temperature of 165°F, ensuring they are tender and their skin becomes delightfully crispy. The result is a smoky, juicy sensation that will leave your taste buds dancing.
But the magic doesn't stop there! After being smoked to perfection, the wings are generously coated in Ritabeata’s Sweet Virginia Love BBQ Sauce. This sauce, or your favorite choice from Ritabeata, adds an extra layer of flavor that elevates these wings to a culinary masterpiece.
To add a final touch of excellence, place the sauced wings on a heated grill or under the broiler in the oven for a quick 5-minute finish. This step caramelizes the sauce, creating a delightful glaze that seals in the mouthwatering goodness.
Whether you're serving these wings as an appetizer or making them the star of a meal, you'll be amazed by the incredible taste with minimal effort. Dive into a plate of our Smoked Chicken Wings with Ritabeata’s Sweet Virginia Love BBQ Sauce and savor a symphony of flavors that will leave you craving for more.
