Preheat the smoker to 275 adding wood chips or chunks if desired. Season the wings with the Korean BBQ Spices and Korean chili flakes and smoke them to 165F.
While the wings smoke, preheat your frying oil to 350F.
Working in batches, carefully fry the wings. Remove from the fryer and set aside while you make the sauce.
In a small cast iron skillet over direct heat, melt the butter and toast the garlic. Add the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, honey, and sesame oil. Simmer until thickened, 2 - 3 minutes. Add the cornstarch and water and simmer another 2 - 3 minutes to thicken.
Whisk the remaining Gochujang, apple cider vinegar and honey together for the finishing sauce, garnish and serve!
