Fire Wings

Chicken wings are a hugely popular dish these days. Did you know that until 1977 chicken wings were considered trash? They were trimmed and discarded when chickens were prepared for sale. In 1977 in Buffalo, NY, Teressa Bellissimo attempted deep frying the chicken wing and tossed it in a Cayenne Pepper sauce. Needless to say, a new food was born. Chicken wings are now one of the top selling bar foods in the United States.

I'll be posting dozens of different wing recipes as this site grows. It seems every Sunday I make 2 or 3 batches, and I always build different flavors in each batch- trying to find the perfect combination. Cooking is important as well, and the method I grill these with is pretty consistent, regardless of flavoring and marinade.

You will need to invest $5 or so in a meat thermometer to use my recipes. Every grill is different, and I'm not going to risk you eating raw chicken to get some hits on my website. ALWAYS check temp before removing anything on this site from the grill.

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Marinade Time: 4 hours+
Cook Time: 1 hour

Chicken wing sections
Spicy Dry rub of your choice
Tapatilo Hot Sauce
Soy Sauce
Louisiana Brand Hot Sauce
Garlic Powder
Cayenne Pepper
Canola Oil Spray

Step 1 - Place wings into large Zip Lock baggie.

Step 2 - Add quick pour of Soy Sauce.

Step 3 - Add Garlic Powder, Dry rub, Cayenne Pepper, and all the hot sauces you can find to the bag.

Step 4 - Seat and shake the bag. Make sure all of the wings are coated evenly.

Step 5 - Set aside in fridge to marinate for at least 4 hours.

Step 6 - Fire up grill. Start on high with lid closed. Once grill is hot in a couple of minutes open and clean grates with a Grill Daddy or any grill brush.

Step 7 - Spray grates with Canola Oil spray. (Will help with initial char)

Step 8 - Drain bag over sink, letting all the liquid come out without dumping the wings out.

Step 9 - Place wings on grill - leave lid open and heat on high. We want to leave the wings on with lid open until we have a nice char on all sides, so don't walk away. Keep the spatula and beer handy, and hang out for a few. You will want to continually stir and flip the wings until the outside is charred but not burnt.

Step 10 - Reduce heat to low and turn off all burners but one. Cook over indirect heat on one burner low for roughly 30 minutes, or until internal chicken temperature reaches 160 degrees.

Step 11 - Once you have verified the chicken is 160, turn all burners back on HIGH! Stir the wings up and spread them out.

Step 12 - Spray wings with a light mist of Canola Oil Spray. (This will crisp them.) Stir repeatedly until they are evenly crisped, charred, and look like the picture attached.

NOTE: You can add more hot sauce at any point during the grilling. Just depends on how hot you want the wings. Cayenne Pepper will really bring the heat level up if added on this BBQ.

Step 13 - ENJOY! You did that!
