Smoked Bat Wings

Not only are these wings dark and gloomy, but when you bite into them, you get the blood red Bloody Mary inspired injection for that extra exciting Halloween twist. To give these Bat Wings their black color, includes the use of a charcoal-based rub, as well as a rich black barbecue sauce glaze. You can use any black rub you like, but I recommend my Grim Reaper Rub. Grab yours in my store HERE.
Chicken wings, with a spicy kick are great any time of the year, but at Halloween, its hard to go past these amazing Bat wings! Bat wings are a fun Halloween treat.

They have all of the flavor and appeal of your standard chicken wing, with a fun twist that your guests will love!

Method


1. Preheat your smoker to 350F and place on your favorite mild fruit wood. I use cherry for the rich color and sweetness that it gives to the meat.

2. Remove your chicken wings from the packaging and remove any remaining feathers before lightly dusting with the Grim Reaper Rub. Coat all sides evenly.

3. Place wings on your smoker and cook for about 45-60 minutes until the chicken wings are nearing 165F.

4.While the chicken cooks, prepare your glaze and your bloody Mary injection.

5. For the glaze, mix all ingredients in a medium sized pot and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring regularly. Keep glaze warm, until wings are ready.

6. For the Bloody Mary mix, feel free to experiment and use your own favorite ingredients. For my recipe, mix all ingredients together with a whisk until well incorporated.

7. Once wings are cooked to temperature, use your preferred meat injector, to inject some of the bloody Mary mix into the wings. Focus on the space between the bones of the wingettes and the areas of the drumette covered with skin. Inject in as much of the mixture as possible, without making so many holes that it seeps out of the bat wing.

8. Once your wings have been injected, carefully dip the whole wing into the glaze mixture. Allow excess glaze to drop off and then place the wings back onto your smoker for about 10 minutes to help the glaze set.

9. Let wings rest for 10-15 minutes before serving to your unexpecting guests!
