We made these wings in an indoor smoker. You can also cook them in the oven or on a barbeque grill. You can use this jerk recipe for pork or chicken breasts. We served ours with a delicious, healthy kale salad which is also on this video. Remember to make the marinade the day before because its best when left for 24 hours. When you cook for yourself you can Save Money, Eat Healthier, Live Greener and Have Fun!
