Hooters is testing Smoked Wings in the select markets of Atlanta and Oklahoma City. Hooters Smoked Wings are regionally-sourced and marinated overnight in a sweet and spicy dry rub before being smoked in-house with Hooters oven smokers. Guests can opt to enhance their wings with several dry rub flavors, including jerk chicken, Texas BBQ and garlic habanero. The wings can also be sauced with any of Hooters signature sauces, such as such as Daytona, teriyaki-style samurai, lemon pepper and chipotle honey. Hooters Smoked Wings also offer guests a healthier wing option without sacrificing robust flavor – they’re delicious and half the calories of fried wings!
According to Hooters Executive Chef Gregg Brickman, “Along with wood-fired and charred items, the art of smoking meat has become a huge trend in food preparation. Since we’ve already mastered everything else with the chicken wing, we thought we’d get ahead of the curve and give our loyal fans in Atlanta and Oklahoma City a chance to try our delicious take on smoked wings.”
Hooters of America, LLC, is the franchisor and operator of more than 420 Hooters restaurants in 42 states and 26 countries. Known for its world famous Hooters Style chicken wings, the first Hooters opened its doors in 1983 in Clearwater, Florida. Expectations were so modest at the time that the simple fact the doors opened was deemed worthy of a toast. Since then millions have been liberated from the ordinary at Hooters while enjoying great food, fun and one-of-a-kind hospitality that can only be served up by the Hooters Girls.
