Chicken Wings Grill Supreme!

If you love chicken wings and love the BBQ – I believe I have the recipe for you!

I first tried this out mid-summer and perfected it a bit more, just this past weekend. We like a bit of heat, but not the standard chicken wing buffalo sauce type – more of a sweet heat…  If you do like the “breaded” style wings, have a look at My Best Chicken Wings (Chaps-Like) here.

I’m sure this recipe will be fine for broiling the wings, but there’s nothing like wings off the grill, with a bit of smoke (applewood is one of my favourites.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken wings - grill20-30 chicken wings (separated)
  • Base Sauce:  All Purpose Sweet Sauce
  • Sauce Adders:
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon smoked spice (President’s Choice – Smokin’ Stampede)
    • 1 teaspoon powdered mustard
    • 2 diced fresh chili peppers (or similar)

Directions:

  1. Make the base sauce 30 minutes in advance of grilling the wings –  All Purpose Sweet Sauce
  2. Place the “Sauce Adders” (you can more here, if you want to dial-up the heat more) in small dish, so you can add these to the sauce when you are at the grill.
  3. Grill the chicken wings, ensuring they are fully cooked (I like to add smoking wood too, to add more flavour to the grilling), this will usually take about 16-18 minutes (keep turning the wings every couple of minutes).
  4. Once the wings are grilled, take a large foil dish, place it on the grill and add a good portion of the Base Sauce to it, and stir in the Sauce Adders thoroughly.
  5. Add the grilled wings into the dish with the sauce and stir thoroughly to coat the wings.
  6. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes, letting the sauce caramelize a bit to the wings (the sauce should bubble on the grill, but keep stirring every few minutes).
  7. Enjoy!
