TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Store leftovers in an airtight 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 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.
