Add all ingredients except the wings to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
Add chicken wings to a large resealable bag and pour marinade over top. Seal the bag and shake to ensure the wings are well coated. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to overnight.
Smoke the wings at 250°F for approximately 2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches around 155-160°F.
Remove wings to a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet and place in a 450°F oven for 5-7 minutes or longer until they reach and internal temperature of 165°F and the skin is crispy. Alternatively, if you like more char, you can transfer the smoked wings to a grill over medium-high heat and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until they reach the finished temp of 165°F.
