Grilled Chicken Wings:

Ingredients:

  • 2lbs chicken wings
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce*
  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce reserved for basting

Note: Any kind of BBQ sauce will work but we love this homemade barbecue sauce for all of our grilling. It combines brown sugar, ketchup and seasonings in a way that our whole family loves. Use your favorite bbq sauce or make our homemade sauce with simple ingredients from the grocery store.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
  • Add a little bit of onion powder, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper or cayenne pepper to the coated chicken before grilling to take them up a notch.
  • You could coat the wing tips with a spice rub before basting with BBQ sauce. We make our own dry rub for all of our smoked recipes.
  • Use olive oil to season your grill before cooking, this will help to prevent the chicken wings from sticking.
  • Optionally, line your grill with aluminum foil so that the wings don’t stick to the grill grates.
