Our Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings get sweet, savory flavor from a simple rub of salt, brown sugar, thyme and black pepper before they're smoked over oak and cherry blend wood. The skin is crispy and coated with a homemade lemony, garlic Parmesan sauce.

We made this recipe on the Bronco Drum Smoker, but you can make it on your smoker.
