My Smoked Buffalo Chicken Dip is one of our favorite game-day treats. This appetizer features cool cream cheese mixed with the best hot sauce. I put my twist on this famous dip by seasoning it with two of my favorite rubs. The end result was a gooey, cheesy treat with my signature BBQ flair.
This game-day goodie is easy to make and requires almost no prep work. I can guarantee you’ve never had a buffalo dip like this before! It’s perfect for last-minute get-togethers.
Some appetizers can be pretty fussy, but this one is straightforward, just the way I like it. This dip has all the best flavors of chicken wings with none of the work. Smoke your chicken ahead of time for easy food prep.

The dip came out of the pit smelling like heaven. It had just the right spice, and the cheese melted to perfection. The appetizer was infused with a smoky flavor that your game-day buds won’t get enough of. I paired my helping with pita chips, adding to the experience.
