The Flavor Anonymous Pit Masters are smoking chicken wings in the BBQ Pro Shop Test Kitchen. Chicken wings are a favorite among so many and they are easy to cook up! The Pit Masters went down the middle of the plate with their seasonings this time, spicing up their wings with two fan favorites: Heath Riles Sweet BBQ Rub and Killer Hogs Hot BBQ Rub.

To start things off, the Pit Masters season their chicken wings equally with Killer Hogs Hot BBQ Rub and Heath Riles Sweet BBQ Rub. This combination of rubs brings the best of both worlds giving the wings a little bit of heat and color from Killer Hogs along with the sweet savory notes from heath riles. With a coating of seasoning on both sides of their chicken wings, they are ready to get smoking!

The Pit Masters toss the wings onto their Ole Hickory Pits Ultra Que and smoke them for about 2 hours around 300ºF and let the flavor of the rubs and smoker do all the work! Once the chicken wings are done, Shane and Dylan use Meat Mitch’s Naked Whomp! BBQ Sauce to dip their perfectly smoked wings to compliment the smoky hot flavor. This is a great and simple way to smoke chicken wings without overpowering the taste of the chicken! This is the perfect choice for an at home cookout that the whole family will enjoy!

Whether its Cinco de Mayo or Taco Tuesday, here is a great How To Video on how to make some simple yet delicious Beef Cheeks Tacos! In this video, the Flavor Anonymous Pit Masters, Shane Draper and Dylan Lipe,  make tasty tacos with two rubs from Oakland Dust, Oakland Dust’s Chili Lime rub and the Oakland Dust’s Original Beef Rub .

To start things off, the Pit Masters trim up the Wagyu Beef Cheeks from Hassell Cattle Company into two nice flanks and coat them liberally with Oakland Dust’s Original Beef Rub to get all those savory notes soaked into the meat. Next, they layer the wagyu beef with a second coating of Oakland Dust’s Chili Lime rub for that pop of spice and smokey flavor! The hint of lime on these beef cheeks works perfectly, especially when you’re putting them in a taco! Once the beef cheeks are seasoned, the Pit Masters throw them onto their M1 Grill from M Grills and cook them hot and fast, cranking up the grill close to 400ºF.

The beef cheeks are done when they are tender to the touch and juicy. To prepare the beef, slice it thin and place them on the preheated corn tortilla. Add some chopped onions, cilantro, queso fresco, and get ready to eat. Keep the ingredients simple to be sure to let the Oakland Dust seasoning help the beef shine on its own!

Watch this exciting video from Flavor Freaks Shane Draper and Dylan Lipe as they create mouthwatering steak sandwiches, using a delicious cut of wagyu skirt steak. Shane and Dylan used a base coat of Boars Night Out White Lightning Double Garlic Butter to give the steak a nice balanced flavor and allow those butter buds melt into the meat. They followed that with a heavy layer of Pork Mafia’s Bistechmafia

The liberal coating of rubs creates a nice crispy crust while keeping the meat juicy and rare on the inside. Using the M1 Grill from M Grills, the skirt steak is seared over charcoal with the coals brought up close right underneath the steak. The Pit Masters cooked up some peppers, onions and mushrooms coated with Boars Night Out White Lightning Double Garlic Butter in a cast iron skillet on the grill soaking them in butter, beef stock, and a little bit of Duke’s Mayonnaise.
