Paleo-friendly and gluten-free, these crispy smoked chicken wings are incredibly simple — just one ingredient. The flavor comes from the smoke and the crispiness comes from the grill. The smokiness infuses through the crispy skin and the meat, and the wings stay juicy inside. It’s a little bit of a process, but the results are worth it.

Place the chicken wings on smoker rack in a single layer and smoke until skin is golden brown and shiny, about 1 hour. Turn the wings once halfway through smoking. Grill wings over medium heat until crisp and cooked through, about 5-10 minutes. Garnish with lime wedges and serve with blue cheese dressing.
