Cinqo de Mayo Wings at

Sorry for the late posting of this Cinqo de Mayo dish. I don’t know where time goes. I am retired but I just seem to be behind. You people who are still working don’t know how difficult it is. Regardless, I did find time to fire up the Louisiana Grills pellet smoker to make Cinqo de Mayo wings.

I started by tossing the wings in some oil and then tossed them with some taco seasoning.

I put the wings in my pellet smoker that I had preheated to 325 F.

While the wings were cooking, I mixed the glaze ingredients and heated them until the glaze thickened.

After the wings had cooked 25 minutes, I turned them and cooked for another 25 minutes.

I put the wings in pot and poured the glaze over them and tossed to coat.

We served the wings with a baked potato and carrot sticks.

The Verdict

These were very tasty but I found them just a touch salty from the soy sauce. She Who Must Be Obeyed said they were among the best wings I’ve done.

Some explanation is required. You’ll note I use very little salt in my recipes. Add to that the fact I don’t eat out a lot and I have become used to less salt. I often complain dishes are too salty when everyone else thinks they’re fine. It is me not the dish.

Other than that, I loved the flavour profile and will make these again.
