Units of Measurement:
2 Pound whole chicken wings
24 Fluid Ounce beer
2 Teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
As Needed Cajun seasoning
1 Pound (10 to 12 slices) bacon


  • 1

    Plan ahead, this recipe requires 12 to 24 hours to brine the wings. Trim the tips off of the wings and discard or set them aside for homemade stock.

  • 2

    Cut the skin flap between the flat and drummette so the wing stays a little more straight and are easier to wrap.

  • 3

    Place the wings in a large bowl and cover with beer and red pepper flakes (if desired).

  • 4

    Refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours before grilling.

  • 5

    Remove the wings from the brine and pat dry. Season liberally with Cajun seasoning.

  • 6

    Wrap each wing with a slice of bacon. You can secure with toothpicks, if necessary.

  • 7

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 400°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

    400 ˚F / 204 ˚C

  • 8

    Place the wings directly on the grill grate, close the lid, and cook for 30 minutes.


  • 9

    Flip the wings and cook for an additional 30 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is fully cooked (at least an internal temperature of 165°F). Remove from the Traeger, serve, and enjoy!
