  1. Holy smoke that is a great sounding recipe, I will have to try it on my Traeger wood pellet smoker. I think I can get some pecan pellets will have to check. There is nothing better than the smokey flavor of meat when it’s done right.

    • Thanks for stopping by my site.
      Yes, you shouldn’t have any problems finding pecan pellets for your Traeger smoker.
      Baste with that sweet syrup, go easy, it is sweet. Get those wings cook just right, you really will be your families hero. We are having a small gathering to watch the first NFL game this week, I am bringing those wings to impress all that show up.
      Good luck in the future with your smoking.
