Smoked Wings with Bleu Cheese Dip

May 14, 2018

These are not your typical wings, nor is it your typical Bleu Cheese dip. These wings and dip are full of Creole flavor, with no added salt, thanks to Tony Chachere's® No Salt Seasoning Blend. Not only that, the wings are smoked, not fried. It's a healthy alternative to your favorite bar food.


Prep time: 25 Minutes   Cooking time: 40 Minutes   Serves: 4  

INGREDIENTS:

For Smoked Wings
2 Packages Fresh Chicken Wings, Wing Tips Removed
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
6 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 Cup Tony Chachere's® No Salt Seasoning Blend

Special Equipment: Charcoal grill or smoker and 2 big handfuls of wood chips soaked in water.

For Bleu Cheese Dip
16 Ounce Container Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
3/4 Cup of Your Favorite Bleu Cheese, Crumbled
6 Green Onions, Sliced (Green and White Parts)
2 Teaspoons Tony Chachere's® No Salt Seasoning Blend


DIRECTIONS:

For Smoked Wings
1
: Rinse wings in cool water and pat dry. (You can separate the wing from the drumette but it's not necessary.)
2: Place wings in large mixing bowl or container and toss with oil.
3: Add the Tony's No Salt Seasoning Blend and garlic to the wings. Toss, making sure chicken is evenly coated with seasoning. Put in refrigerator and let sit for a minimum of 4 hours and up to overnight.
4: Prepare charcoal grill and briquettes. Once coals are glowing and evenly covered in gray ash, carefully spread a layer across the bottom. Drain wood chips and add to hot coals. Open the grill vents all the way on the bottom of the unit and on the lid. Close lid and preheat until temperature reaches 500 degrees.
5: Brush grill grates clean and carefully place in grill.
6: Remove wings from refrigerator while grill preheats.
7: Evenly arrange wings, skin side down, on grill grate. With the lid off, grill the chicken 7-10 minutes, turning occasionally. You want to get nice, even grill marks and color. Watch for flareups.
8: Close top and bottom grill vents and cover with lid. Temperature should be 225-250 degrees. Continue smoking wings for approximately 30 minutes longer, or until a thermometer registers 165 degrees.
9: Serve wings with Tony's No Salt Seasoning Blend Bleu Cheese Dip and celery sticks.

Note: You can also skip the grill and bake the wings in a 400-degree oven for approximately 45-50 minutes, finished with a quick blast under the broiler to add a little char.

For Bleu Cheese Dip
1: In a small bowl, combine sour cream, cheese, green onions and Tony's No Salt Seasoning Blend.
2: Slowly stir in buttermilk until thoroughly mixed.
3: Serve with Tony's Smoked Wings and a side of celery.
