Roasted Buffalo Wings

Roasted Buffalo Wings

By Traeger Kitchen

These smoked buffalo wings are the #1 seed for a reason. The tangy-spice of the buffalo sauce combined with fall-off-the-bone wood-fired flavour makes a classic even better. If you like your sauce super hot, feel free to add a pinch of cayenne.

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 375℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    375 ˚F / 191 ˚C

    While the grill is preheating, dry the chicken wings with a paper towel. Place the wings in a large bowl and sprinkle with the cornstarch, Traeger Chicken Rub, and salt. Toss to coat the wings all over.

  • 3

    Place the chicken wings directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook, turning halfway, until the internal temperature reaches at least 165°F but ideally 175-180°F for the best texture, about 35 minutes.

    175 ˚F / 79 ˚C

    Meanwhile, make the buffalo sauce: In a small saucepan, combine the Frank's RedHot, mustard, and butter. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking to combine, until the butter is melted and the sauce is warmed through. Cover and keep warm until ready to use.

  • 5

    Transfer the wings to a large bowl. Pour the buffalo sauce over the wings and toss with tongs to coat.

  • 6

    Return the wings to the grill, close the lid, and cook for another 10-15 minutes, until the sauce sets.

    Serve the wings with ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping. Enjoy!
