#PitBossGrill: Cherry Habanero Smoked Chicken Wings

A friend gave Hubs Cherry Habanero seasoning to try so we decided to use it in Chicken Wings. Instead of our usual crispy fried wings, we thought we’d try smoking wings with the Pit Boss Pro Pellet Grill. The wings turned out really good except he might have over seasoned them. It’s still good though, just slightly lighter on the seasonings next time around.

Just for an added flavor and was supposed to hold onto the dry-rub better, 6 of the chicken wings were lightly brushed with the Golden BBQ sauce. You don’t have to do this by the way.
