Step 1
To make General Tso’s Sauce, Heat Vegetable Oil (1 tablespoon) in a small sauce pot over medium heat. Sauté Garlic (3 clove), Fresh Ginger (1 tablespoon), and Scallion (2 tablespoon) for 1-2 minutes.
Step 2
Add the Light Soy Sauce (1/2 cup), Hoisin Sauce (1/2 cup), Rice Vinegar (1/2 cup), Water (1/2 cup), and Brown Sugar (1 cup). Stir to combine.
Step 3
Stir in the Sweet Chili Sauce (1 tablespoon), Chili Garlic Paste (1/2 tablespoon), and Red Chili Pepper (2 teaspoon). Continue cooking until mixture reaches a slight boil.
Step 4
In a separate bowl, combine the Corn Starch (2 tablespoon) and Water (2 tablespoon). Slowly add the slurry to the sauce pot while stirring. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat. Pour the General Tso’s Sauce into a jar and allow to cool.
Step 5
Prepare Yoder Smoker or other grill for indirect cooking at a temperature of 300 degrees F. Use cherry pellets for wood smoke and cherry wood chunks if other type grill/smoker is used.
Step 6
Combine Killer Hogs The A.P. Rub (1/2 cup) with Chinese Five Spice Powder (2 tablespoon) and Red Chili Pepper (1 tablespoon). Coat both sides of the Chicken Wing (3 pound) with this mixture.
Step 7
Place wings on the grill and smoke for 45 minutes.
Step 8
Turn each wing over to evenly cook both sides, for about 25 minutes.
Step 9
Glaze each wing with General Tso’s Sauce on both sides and continue to cook until wings are tender, about 10 minutes. Internal temperature should be at least 165 degrees F and juice should run clear.
Step 10
Arrange the wings on a large platter and garnish with Sesame Seeds (1 pinch) and Scallion (1 pinch) before serving. Enjoy!
