  • 2 lbs of Chicken Wingettes
  • 3-4 cups of Frying Oil
  • cup of Honey
  • Olive Oil


  • 1 tbsp of Ancho Chile Powder
  • 1 tbsp of Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp of Sea Salt
  • 3 tsp of Cayenne Powder
  • 2 tsp of Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp of Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp of Smoked Paprika


  • Lather your chicken wingettes in olive oil. In a bowl, mix all of the seasonings and add to chicken. Mix thoroughly. Set chicken in the fridge.
  • Preheat your Oklahoma Joe’s 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 2-2.5 hours or until 165F internal.
  • As wings are close to being done, preheat another Oklahoma Joe’s grill, fire pit or stovetop for direct cooking. Add a dutch oven to it and *carefully* add your frying oil. Heat frying oil for 325-350F.
  • Once wings are done, pull them off and let them rest for 5 minutes. Carefully add wings to frying oil and cook for 2 minutes. Flip and stir occasionally.
  • As wings are frying, gently heat up some honey and set aside.
  • Pull wings out of frying oil and let rest for 2 minutes. Add to a bowl along with heated honey and toss. Serve and enjoy!
