Chef Billy Parisi’s smoked chicken wings recipe is sure to be your go-to wing night favorite. “I love the flavors of smoked BBQ food. It’s one of my favorite things to eat. If you’re similar and want to try out some amazing BBQ sauces on your next smoke, then try my South Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce or Vinegar Based Carolina Sauce.” Thanks, Billy!
