Smokey BBQ wings are a delicious appetizer or snack that are perfect for game day, parties, or any casual gathering. These wings are coated in a savory and slightly sweet BBQ sauce that has a hint of smokiness, giving them a unique and irresistible flavor.
To make smokey BBQ wings, you will need chicken wings, BBQ sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. First, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, season the chicken wings with smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Place the wings on the baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown.
While the wings are cooking, prepare the BBQ sauce by combining your favorite BBQ sauce with a dash of liquid smoke to give it a smoky flavor. Once the wings are done, remove them from the oven and brush them generously with the BBQ sauce. Return the wings to the oven and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the sauce has caramelized and the wings are coated in a sticky glaze.
When the wings are done, transfer them to a serving platter and sprinkle them with chopped fresh parsley or cilantro for a pop of color and freshness. Serve the wings with additional BBQ sauce for dipping, celery sticks, and carrot sticks for a crunchy contrast.
Smokey BBQ wings are a delicious and crowd-pleasing appetizer that are easy to make and sure to be a hit at any party or gathering.
