Smoked Lemon Pepper Wings

So…I’m definitely on a smoking kick at the moment.
Smoked Lemon Pepper Wings Once I really understood the process, I fell completely in love with it. I’m smoking everything I can get my hands on; chicken, beef, potatoes, cheese.

I think I may have a smoking problem, like a bag of charcoal a day habit.

(Fine, I’m kidding). But I am loving my smoker, and look for any excuse to use it.
What has surprised me the most is that smoking is a lot like grilling; I always assumed it was much more tedious and difficult.

I recently bought a Char-Griller Double Play grill, which gives me both gas and charcoal barrels, and I bought the smoker box that attaches to the side.
It’s just not. I can throw my stuff on the grates just like I do with my charcoal or gas grill; the only differences are time and the beautiful smokiness that this type of cooking imparts.
Smoked Lemon Pepper Wings AND it’s fun. Even though it takes some patience, there’s definitely something to be said about the thrill of anticipation.

Look for a smoked beer can burger coming up in the next week or two! I have some delicious plans.
