Add wood chips to the wood chip box of the Digital Electric Vertical Smoker. Add water to the recommended level in the water pan. Preheat the smoker for 40 minutes.
Take a quick trip to the far-east without leaving your backyard with these Asian-inspired smoked chicken wings. Simply set your smoker to 225°F and let the heat do the work. You’ll be enjoying sweet and smoky chicken wings, infused with the delicious flavor of five-spice powder, in just over an hour.
Combine the soy sauce, mirin, orange juice, brown sugar and five spice powder in a bowl. Add the wings and marinate in the refrigerator for one hour.
Once the smoker has preheated, set it to 225 degrees.
Put the wing pieces in a disposable aluminum pan and put in the smoker. Smoke for about 1.5 hours or until a digital thermometer registers 160 degrees internal temperature in the meatiest part of the wings. Remove the wings from the smoker.
Heat about three inches of vegetable oil in a high-sided skillet to 350 degrees. Add the wings in batches and fry for one to two minutes until the skin is crisp. Drain on a wire rack and serve.
