Special equipment: 1 cup pimento wood chips, soaked for at least 2 hours in cold water
For the smoked jerk chicken wings: Brush the chicken with canola oil. Combine the sugar, allspice, chile, black pepper and salt. Generously coat the chicken with the spice mix.
Heat the grill to medium for indirect grilling. Add the chips to the coals or put in a smoke box and add to the grill. Place the chicken on the grill over medium heat, and cook until golden browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Cover the grill. Grill until the chicken is brown and crisp and just cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from grill and place the chicken in a large bowl.
Meanwhile, for the honey-tamarind dipping sauce: Combine 1/2 cup water, the orange juice, honey, ketchup, tamarind and ginger in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until slightly thick, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and remove and discard the ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk in the vinegar. Keep warm.
Add the honey-tamarind dipping sauce to the bowl of chicken and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and transfer to a platter.
