Sticky Asian Wings

Sticky Asian Wings

Sticky Asian Wings are all the rage right now, So I wasn’t surprised when country music artist Alyssa Marie Coon brought them up during our interview. However, I  think versions of these Asian-inspired wings don’t differ much from restaurant to restaurant. I decided to do my own spin by smoking them.  Let me tell you, the flavor combinations of sweet, spicy, and hickory smoke raised these wings to a whole new level. I think these wings will be a family favorite. Try our recipe for Sticky Asian Wings today!

While you are smoking, you will have plenty of time to check out our full interview with Alyssa by clicking here.
