Smoked North Carolina Chicken Wings

North Carolina Barbecue Rub is my go to for chicken wings. It's hot with a subtle sweetness and not too much of a smoky flavor. This recipe is a favorite with our friends and family and always leaves them coming back for more. Not a huge fan of heat? Pair these wings with Ranch Dip. The cool dip balances the heat of the wings - even people who prefer sweet chicken wings will fall for this winning combination! 


  • 2 dozen Chicken Wings
  • 1 Polybag of North Carolina Barbecue Rub
  • 1/4 cup Franks Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite sweet barbecue sauce


Coat the wings in North Carolina Barbecue Rub and let sit for 30 minutes

Put into your smoker for 2 hours. We use Hickory smoking chips. 

After 2 hours, take the wings our and coat them with the blended Franks Red Hot Sauce and  sweet barbecue sauce.

Place the coated wings back in the smoker for another 2 hours or until your barbecue glaze crispy.
