These Dry Rubbed Smoked Wings are bold, smoky and bursting with flavor. After brining, the dry rub brings an entirely new flavor profile to your wings. Sugar adds a bit of sweetness while the guajillo powder enhances with mild to medium heat and a hint of berry flavor. And, of course, your smoker provides that natural wood-fired flavor while keeping the meat tender and juicy. 

Grill these on the innovative Firecraft Series Barrel for the flavor of a smoker and char of a grill over an open fire.
