Grilled Chicken Wings 

  • 5 lb chicken wings
  • Sweetwater Spice Tres Chiles Fajita Bath
  • Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning
  • Plowboys BBQ Hothead BBQ Sauce

For the Cilantro Buttermilk Dressing: 

  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. If using whole wings, cut off the tips and discard, then separate the two wing pieces by cutting at joint in the space between where the bones meet. Place the wings in an 8-Quart Briner Bucket. Add equal parts Sweetwater Spice Tres Chiles Fajita Bath and water to the bucket, enough to cover all wings. Lock the plastic plate in place to keep the wings submerged. Place in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.
  2. While the chicken soaks, combine all ingredients for the Cilantro Buttermilk Dressing in a blender. Blend until smooth. Store in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Grill to 425ºF, set up with GrillGrates.
  4. Remove the wings from the liquid. Pat dry with paper towels. Season all surfaces with Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning.
  5. Grill the wings on both sides to achieve nice browning. Use an instant-read thermometer to monitor the internal temperature. Remove from the cooker when the internal temperature reaches 165ºF. Immediately toss the wings in Plowboys BBQ Hothead BBQ Sauce. Serve hot with the Cilantro Buttermilk Dressing for dipping.

Beef Rib Tacos with Fire Roasted Salsa

These beef rib tacos are a feast for the eyes and the senses. The rich, juicy rib meat is complemented by a chunky salsa made from roasted tomatoes, onions, jalapeño and garlic. The result is “crunchy, fresh, acidic, smokey and just the right amount of spice,” says Andres Padilla, who cooked these up on his YS640.
