Easy recipes to make using a Masterbuilt electric smoker include sweet and spicy chicken wings and smoked potato salad. Some of the best wood chips to use for the chicken wings are apple, while mesquite wood chips are ideal for the potato salad.
To make the chicken wings recipe, combine seasoning ingredients such as black pepper, chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder with salt to create a dry rub. Place chicken wing pieces into a large plastic food bag, add the dry rub ingredients and shake the chicken in the bag until thoroughly coated. Let the wings marinate in the rub for 30 minutes at room temperature, or marinate them in the refrigerator overnight. Preheat the smoker to a temperature of 225 degrees Fahrenheit, and cook the wings. Meanwhile, make a sauce combining honey, hot barbecue sauce and apple juice, and pour the sauce over the wings after transferring them to a disposable aluminum pan.
To make the potato salad, peel 1 pound of russet potatoes and boil them in a large pot for 20 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to smoker racks, reduce the smoker heat to 200 degrees Fahrenheit, and smoke for two hours. Remove the potatoes from the smoker, dice, and combine them with chopped boiled eggs, onion, pickles, mustard and other salad ingredients.
