Get your savory tastebuds ready for the Pumpkin Spice Chicken Wings. These are spicy and loaded with flavor, cooked right over the coals or in your smoker. Which beer will you drink with these?
No lattes here. This blend is simply cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and clove. Warming spices go perfectly with other BBQ ingredients.
PUMPKIN SPICE DRY RUB The base ingredients of this rub consist of flavors you’d see with a typical, spicy BBQ rub: • Paprika • Pumpkin Spice • Mustard powder • Onion powder • Garlic powder • Chipotle powder • Kosher Salt
PREPPING THE WINGS Pat them dry with a paper towel. Moisture is the enemy. Season them ahead of time, at least 30 minutes prior. If you can season them and leave them uncovered in the fridge overnight, even better.
WOOD-FIRED FLAVORS Smoke for about 45 minutes at 250F indirect, and then finish them directly over high heat around 425F. This gives you both the smoky flavors and amazing char that you’d expect with grilled chicken wings.
BLAZE AND GLAZE Prep and apply the sauce. This adds a spicy layer to the overall flavor. Takes 5 minutes! Sauce Ingredients • Butter • Frank’s RedHot Original • Pumpkin Spice • Brown Sugar
We topped our Pumpkin Spice Chicken Wings with fresh-roasted pumpkin seeds. Take the raw, unsalted seeds and toast them in a pan on med-low heat. Shake pretty often to make sure the seeds don’t burn. Just as they start to brown turn off the heat and keep shaking them.
