Smoked Chicken Wings Of Doom ~ For The Fire Lovers!

Here is a recipe that almost landed me a “Post Traumatic Stress Case Lawsuit”, do to the serious heat factor of these amazingly Hot Smoked BBQ Wings. I served them as a nice, “How do you do,” on a camping trip with a bunch of fun folks a few years ago. I left a mark, forever. I'm a bad girl. They invited me back, but now they ask, "Is it Tré Hot?"
