SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

Would I call myself a chicken wing expert? Yeah, I would. At least at eating them. I eat my fair share of chicken wings and recently I've started making my own. I looked up a recipe online two weeks ago for the NFL playoff games and it turned out great so I will steal parts of that for this Super Bowl party recipe.

Get a bowl and put these spices in there together -- the pepper (two tablespoons), onion powder (one tablespoon), chili powder (one tablespoon), garlic powder (one tablespoon) and seasoned salt (one tablespoon). This is your rub. You will coat the chicken wings -- this recipe is for about five pounds of wings -- with this rub. It's easiest to put it in a plastic bag and mix it up that way. Marinate them in the rub for a few hours.

Note: This will be fairly spicy so just slow down on the pepper if you don't want it that spicy.

The key to this recipe is smoking the wings. If you don't have a real smoker, just put them on indirect heat on the grill. Toss some wood chips on the other side to get some good flavor.

Smoke for 25-30 minutes on one side. Flip them. Smoke for another 25-30 minutes on the other side.

While that's cooking, you'll make your sauce. It's pretty easy. Combine honey (one cup), barbecue sauce (half cup) and apple juice (three tablespoons) into a sauce pan and heat it up. Some might say the recipe has too much honey so, like the pepper, you could take it easy on that if you want.

Take your wings out after they've cooked for 25 minutes on each side. Put the wings in a container and pour the sauce over them. Mix it all together.

Now, put the wings back on the smoker for another 25 minutes. You could also put the wings over direct heat if you want to get a crispy skin, which I recommend.

After they're done cooking, tell your wife to get the hell out of your room. This is a business trip for you.

The rub and the sauce is not the most important part of all of this. Smoking the meat well is. It's also key, if you like the crispy skin, to place over direct heat or crank up the heat at the end to get the crispy skin. You could cook them that way and then add your own Frank's Red Hot sauce or whatever hot sauce you use.
