Make the brine: In a large stockpot, combine the water, salt, and sugar and stir well to combine. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and add the lemon, garlic, thyme, and peppercorns. Let cool to room temperature.
1 Gallon water
1 Cup Sea salt
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Large lemon, halved crosswise
1 Head garlic, halved crosswise
4 Sprig fresh thyme
10 Whole peppercorns
Submerge the chicken wings in the brine. Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
3 Pound chicken wings
When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 375℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.
375 ˚F / 191 ˚C
Remove the wings from the brine and rinse well under cool running water, then dry completely with paper towels. Discard the brine. Toss the wings with the olive oil to coat completely.
2 Tablespoon Olive oil
Place the wings directly on the grill grates. Insert the probe into the thickest part of a wing, avoiding the bone. Close the lid and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165℉, 45-60 minutes.

165 ˚F / 74 ˚C
Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a medium saucepan, whisk together the gochujang, soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, sesame oil, butter, garlic, and ginger. Cook on the stovetop over medium heat until the sauce just comes to a simmer, then remove from the heat.
1/2 Cup gochujang
1/4 Cup soy sauce
1/3 Cup honey
2 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 Tablespoon lime juice
2 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tablespoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
Transfer the wings to a large bowl and toss with two thirds of the sauce until well coated, then add the green onions, peanuts, and sesame seeds and toss until well distributed. Arrange the wings on a platter and serve with cilantro, lime wedges, and the remaining sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
