BBQ'd Hot Wings!

There's just something about eating a plate of hot wings that makes me feel good. Maybe it's the spicy tangy-ness in the mouth or the dipping into ranch dressing to cool it off...or maybe it's the licking of the fingers in between servings. Whatever it is, I keep craving more when they're gone.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
'Hot Wing Rub'
1 t garlic powder
1 t cayenne
1/2 t ground mustard
3/4 t white pepper
3/4 t black pepper
1/2 t dried thyme
1/2 t dried oregano
1 T paprika
1 T kosher salt

2 lbs chicken wings (drummettes separate from wingettes)
1/3 c melted butter
1/2 c hot sauce (Use your favorite. I love Cholula in general, but I prefer Frank's for these wings.)

Step 2: Grilling the Wings

Picture of Grilling the Wings
Toss the wings with the spicy rub. Put the wings on a hot grill (400 F) skin side down, using indirect heat** for 30 minutes. Flip to skin side up and grill for an additional 20 - 30 minutes. The skin should be nice and crispy by now.

** If your grill is gas, turn on half your burners on put them on the non lit side. If your grill is charcoal, pile the briquettes on one side and put your wings on the other.

Step 3: Add the sauce

When finished cooking, put the wings in a bowl and add the hot sauce & melted butter. Toss to coat.

Step 4: Eat 'em

Put them on a platter for you and your friends or just eat right out of the bowl. They're good on their own but best dipped in homemade ranch or blue cheese dressing. Make sure to have plenty of paper towels.
Just used this rub on some chicken breasts, real good flavor, nice spice hit, should go well with the Red Hot sauce.

This is pretty much how I make my wings, except my rub is a bit different. Try using Old Bay blackened seasoning with appropriate amounts of garlic, white and black pepper, season salt, paprika, and just a tiny bit of cumin. So tasty I had a mouthgasm and my arm fell off.
O.k!
This is niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicccccccccccccceeeeeeeee!

Teaspoon vs Tablespoon

Sorry. I should have been more clear with that...

T = Tablespoon
t = teaspoon

Good Man!! Franks red hot is the SHHEEEYYYIIIITTTTT!!!!!!
johnnyblegs (author)  vandal11384 years ago
Yes! Franks is the only way to go when you do wings. One of these days I'm going to try and replicate it and make my own version.

I had these a couple weeks ago with the OP and they are the ultimate. I came close to embarrassing myself by eating so many.

I always embarrass myself by eating these. There's no way to look glamorous either - licking your fingers, sauce on the face.

OH my goodness. My mouth literally watered, and my tongue tingled from the look of your hot wings. Faved for future reference.
