These spicy garlic confit chicken wings are smoky, savory, with just the right amount of heat without overwhelming you.

  • Total Time: 150
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 2 lb chicken wings
  • 3 tbsp High Caliber seasoning
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 12 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 3 tbsp chopped chipotles in adobo
  • 1 tsp salt
  • squeeze of lime
  • chopped cilantro leaves for garnish


  1. Pat the wings dry and season generously. (Recommended) Place the wings, uncovered, on a wire rack in the fridge for a couple of hours, or up to overnight.
  2. Preheat your smoker or grill for indirect cooking, 300°F.
  3. Place the wings on the smoker.
  4. Combine the oil and garlic cloves into a small, heat-safe container such as a foil pan. Make sure the garlic is mostly submerged in the oil (use a small pan). Cover with foil, and place in the smoker for 45-50 minutes.
  5. Remove the garlic after the time has spent, and cool briefly. Combine the rest of the ingredients and blend together in a small blender or food processor. Taste and adjust.
  6. Remove the wings from the smoker when the internal temperate is at least 175°F.
  7. Toss the wings with some of the sauce, top with cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.


The leftover sauce keeps in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. This can be made ahead of time if needed, but make sure it’s warm when tossing with the wings.
