1. Place wings in a single layer on a cooling rack set in a cookie sheet.
2. Season both sides generously with the AP rub (don’t be afraid to season them).
3. Place in the fridge for two hours uncovered (this dries the skin and lets the wings crisp up on the smoker). Let come to room temperature (takes 30 to 45 minutes).
4. Get your smoker up to 275 degrees Fahrenheit while the wings are setting on the counter.
5. Place the wings in the smoker and flip every 30 minutes until done. Mine took two hours and 10 minutes to reach an internal temperature of 170 degrees Fahrenheit and have good fat rendering.
6. Remember, an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit is the minimum, but wings can tolerate up to 190 degrees, if needed, to get the color and fat rendering you want. Now, pull up a chair and get to eaten’…enjoy!!
