Fired up the Traeger yesterday for a little Halloween fun. We did wings, pizza and some mummy dogs. All came out pretty good. I need to keep trying out different methods for the wings as they weren't as crispy as I was hoping for. I smoked them for 20 mins at 200 in super smoke mode and then cranked it up to 400 for another 20-25 minutes. The jack o lantern pizza was from Papa Murphy's and as usual they come out really good on the Traeger. My wife made the mummy dogs. This was done by using HEB brisket hotdogs wrapped in crescent rolls dough for about 15 minutes. It sure is fun having an outdoor oven!

Ive done both ways. I prefer fat side down. I've had better luck that way, and i think meat finishes more juicy.

Wings look great, but I agree, I don't find them crispy on Traeger, I start on gas grill, indirect flame until they are close to 1/2- 3/4 done, than I add to Traeger, I am sure that's sacrilegious but I am open to suggestions on how to make them crispy.

For crispier wings try cooking them at a lower temperature for longer. Doing this will render out more of the fat which will crisp up at the higher temperature cook. Also think about adding some baking soda to your rub this changes the PH level in the skin and will also help the crisping.

I would suggest baking powder and salt as opposed to soda.
