  • 2,5 lb chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoon garlic powder


  • Make a rub out of all the spices listed above. Cover chicken wings in rub and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile preheat your smoker to 250F degrees. Place wings on the smoker rack leavings some space between them. Load smoker with hickory wood and smoke for about 2 hours.
  • Add wood as needed. In my Masterbuilt smoker i had to add wood three times during the whole cooking process.
  • Wings should be done in 2 hours but check with your thermometer to make sure the temperature inside the thickest part of the meat is at 165 degrees.


Please adjust spices to your taste. Make sure that wings are covered completely in spices before smoking.
Cut wings into segments if you like. I cut it three pieces and discard the top one.
For crispy wings broil them in your oven for couple minutes.
