To Sauce or Not to Sauce?
These Traeger Chicken Wings are so good; they don’t even need sauce. Our all-purpose BBQ Rub brings an explosion of flavor to the wings. However, if you want an extra kick, feel free to add some barbecue, teriyaki, or classic buffalo sauce. It’s all about personalizing the experience to suit your taste buds.
Feeding a Hungry Crowd
Are you wondering how many wings you’ll need to satisfy a crowd? Brace yourself. Teenage boys can devour an incredible amount of wings. While there’s no exact number, I recommend estimating about 6 wings per person, unless you’re making a meal out of them. In that case, a dozen wings per person, along with some delicious sides, should do the trick. If you’re dealing with a group of ravenous teenage boys, prepare around 15 pounds of wings. They’ll thank you for it!
Achieving Crispy Skin
Let’s tackle the million-dollar question: can you get crispy skin on pellet-grilled chicken wings? While it’s not quite the same as deep-fried wings, there are a few methods that can give you that coveted crispy texture.
- Baking Powder/Cornstarch Method: Dust the wings with a mixture of baking powder, cornstarch, and your favorite rub. Refrigerate them overnight to dry the skin, render the fat quickly, and crisp up the skin during cooking.
- Air Fryer Method: After seasoning the wings with your dry rub, grill them on the Traeger, and then finish them off in the air fryer. This method ensures crispy skin without drying out the meat.
- Oil Fried Method: Heat up some oil in a cast-iron pan, and give the smoked wings a quick fry. This method combines the best of both worlds—smoky flavor and crispy skin. Find out more about the smoked and fried wings experience here.
