I like chicken wings like most people, and fried is always good but it's hard to beat the flavor you can get from smoking. I usually only cook for a couple people in one go, so I decided it was time to lay down the money on a custom smoker that would help keep the fuel costs down. It's still able to handle 3 large wings at a time. Of course I use lump coal. With this baby one bag lasts me a good 2 years. I decided to splurge and have them build it so I can trailer it for camping, on the beach, music festivals, etc.
