Meat Mitch Signature Smoked Chicken Wings

Pitmaster Mitch Benjamin has created a myth surrounding his tastes and techniques that has spread pretty quickly through the KCBS competition circuit. Along with a multitude of awards, he currently has four BBQ concept restaurants open in the Kansas City metropolitan area, Char Bar Smoked Meats & Amusements in the northland and midtown areas, and Meat Mitch in the south end of town and also in KCI Airport.

Mitch Benjamin, owner and proprietor of Kansas City's Meat Mitch BBQ restaurants, rubs and sauces.

He is also frequently called in to cook special post-game meals for the two-time world champion Kansas City Royals team. We asked him for the perfect game day appetizer that will make an impression, and he definitely delivered. These spicy wings will keep your guests coming back and the cool drinks flowing until the big game is officially over.

Smoke wings for 45 min to an hour. Once you have achieved a nice, bronzed color to the wings, remove them and place into a large bowl.
Using Meat Mitch Stay Hot Sauce, cover the wings in the bowl completely and toss.

Return wings to a grill grate set directly over a fire to crisp and slightly char the wings. Keep a close eye on this!

When completed, return wings to the bowl and toss with one more round of Stay Hot Sauce.

Plate the wings on a large platter and using a squirt bottle, drizzle Meat Mitch White Sauce over top of the wings.

You now have the best wings ever made. STAY HOT!!
