  1. Heat a smoker to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) according to manufacturer's directions.

  2. Mix 1 tablespoon salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning in a small bowl to make dry rub. Sprinkle over chicken wings.

  3. Cook chicken wings in the preheated smoker until tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hour.

  4. Combine hot pepper sauce, butter, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and salt in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring often, until butter is melted and sauce is smooth. Remove from heat.

  6. Transfer smoked wings to a large bowl, stir in 1/2 of the sauce until wings are evenly coated.
