I have been grilling the heck out of chicken wings recently. I have been trying a few different tweaks and feel like I have a real SOLID technique going on.
I am grilling the wings with indirect high heat. I use a large chimney full of lit charcoal banked on the left side of the grill.
I coat the wings in peanut oil and salt then place them on the right side of the grill.
The peanut oil really helps the skin get crispy. Here is what the wings look like after about 30 minutes.
After the wings have grilled for 45 minutes I take them off the grill and toss them in a bowl with a mix of 3 parts hot sauce to one part honey. The wings then go back on the grill.
Let the wings grill for another 15 minutes so the sauce can set and the honey does a little charring.
These are delicious! You can change up the hot sauce to suit your heat level and can switch out the honey with agave nectar if you prefer a low glycemic sweetener.
I am sure I will get tired of eating these wings eventually. But that won’t be happening anytime soon.
