Smoked Chicken Wings on Platter

Smoked Chicken Wings have made it to the weekly rotation now that the weather is beautiful and we’re outside more. Chicken wings have always been a family favorite, but smoking has become my go-to way to cook them.

 If you don’t yet have a smoker, I’ll shed a single tear for you but please be sure to try my Crockpot Chicken Wings Recipe. You can’t go wrong there either!

BBQ Chicken Wings

10 Dipping Sauces for your Chicken Wings!

Here are some of my favorite sauces to smother wings in. Many of these are just store bought options, which is totally FINE! And some I have homemade versions of, but feel free to make/buy your own.

  1. Buffalo Sauce: A classic choice, with varying levels of heat and tanginess.
  2. Buttermilk Ranch Dressing: This creamy dip balances the spice of wings beautifully. If you want a high protein option, you should try my High Protein Ranch Dressing!
  3. Blue Cheese Sauce: A tangy and pungent dip that pairs wonderfully with hot wings.
  4. Honey Mustard: Sweet and slightly tangy, a delightful contrast to spicy wings.
  5. Barbecue Sauce: Sweet, smoky, or spicy, depending on the variety, adding depth to the wings.
  6. Teriyaki Sauce: A sweet and savory option that complements wings beautifully, sprinkle with green onions for some added flavor!
  7. Sriracha Mayo: Spicy and creamy, offering a kick of heat to the wings.
  8. Garlic Parmesan Sauce: Creamy, cheesy, and garlicky, a luxurious option for wings.
  9. Sweet Chili Sauce: Sweet, tangy, and slightly spicy, a unique twist for dipping wings.
  10. Soy-Ginger Glaze: A flavorful blend of soy sauce, ginger, and other seasonings that works wonders with wings.

Here are some of the best sides to serve with your Chicken Wings!
