Dine In

Jeff’s favorite Dine In recipe to enjoy with her family is Traeger Grilled Chicken Wings. This is a family favorite year round. He especially enjoys it during football game days, around the pool in the summer and by the fire on a cool spring evening. Heres how he makes it:

Traeger Grilled Chicken Wings


Buy fresh Whole Chicken Wings, prepare wings by separating the drums and flats. Marinate the wings in a type of Cajun marinade sauce. Then  apply a dry rub on the wings made especially for chicken.

Chicken the wings on the smoker at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I use a combination of Apple and Hickory wood pellets in my smoker. After 30 minutes I generally apply the sauce to the wings. My family likes to make a combination of flavors by sometimes adding buffalo, sweet honey barbecue and spicy barbecue sauces.

To apply the sauce, I put the wings in a stainless steel bowl and pour on the sauce and toss the wings. The wings are then put back on the grill to finish up and firm up the sauce.
