Smoky Cajun Wings w Cajun Sweet BBQ Sauce

These are now my all time favorite. Sweet smoky with a Cajun flare. You are going to need tons of napkins or even better wet wipes. These are delicious. You may want to double or triple the recipe because these don't last long. You could also make these with chicken legs or thighs.
