  • 2 lbs Chicken Wings
  • 1.5 cups Favorite BBQ Seasoning
  • 1 cup Yellow Mustard
  • 1 qt Frying Oil for frying
  • Scallions for garnish

Hot Honey Garlic Glaze:

  • 2 Butter Sticks
  • ½ cup Hot Sauce
  • 3 tbsp Local Honey
  • 2.5 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Seeds


  • Slather your chicken wings in yellow mustard then add your favorite bbq seasoning. Mix thoroughly. Set chicken aside until ready to use.
  • Preheat your smoker to 250F for indirect cooking. Add some hickory wood chunks for added smoke flavor if desired.
  • Add your chicken wings to the smoker and cook for about 1.5-2 hours or until 165F internal.
  • As the wings are close to done, preheat a grill, fire pit or stovetop for direct cooking.
  • Add a dutch oven to it and *carefully* add your frying oil (leaving at least 2-3” of space from the oil and the top of the skillet).
  • Heat up the frying oil for 325-350F.
  • Once the wings are done, pull them off and let them rest for 2-3 minutes.
  • Carefully add wings to frying oil and cook for 2 minutes. Flip and stir occasionally.
  • As wings are frying, gently heat up another skillet with some oil and brown your minced garlic.
  • Then add all the other ingredients for the Hot Honey Garlic Glaze and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, pull off and let cool.
  • Pull wings out of frying oil, pat dry with a paper towel and add to a tossing bowl.
  • Cover the wings in the Hot Honey Garlic Glaze and toss thoroughly.
  • Serve and garnish with scallions and more honey. Enjoy!
