Fireball Whisky Chicken Wings

5.0

Fireball Whisky Chicken Wings are hot, sticky sweet and spicy. They’re seasoned with a rub that features paprika and brown sugar and then they’re sauced with some sweet heat. Brushing them with Fireball Whisky Barbecue Sauce at the very end gives them a sweet and tangy cinnamon flavor. Get ‘em while they’re hot.

For the Chicken Wings
6

1/4
cup olive oil
1
tablespoon kosher salt
1
tablespoon black pepper
2
teaspoons smoked paprika
1
teaspoon onion powder
1
teaspoon brown sugar
For the Fireball Whisky Barbecue Sauce
1

1/3
cup Fireball Cinnamon Whisky

Directions

Prep: 20 Minutes, Cook: 60 Minutes
1

Preheat your grill for indirect grilling at 350°F.

Hot Tip: When grilling with indirect heat, food is placed on the cooler side of the grill away from the heat source.
2

In a large bowl, combine the chicken wings with olive oil and mix to give an equal coating.

3

Combine the kosher salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, onion powder and brown sugar in a separate bowl. Then sprinkle over the wings and mix to season evenly.

4

Place the chicken wings on the grill grates over indirect heat and close the lid. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165°F on an instant read thermometer, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

5

While the chicken wings are cooking, combine ketchup, brown sugar, whisky, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cayenne powder in a saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes.

6

When the chicken wings are fully cooked, brush them on both sides with Fireball Whisky Barbecue Sauce. Move them to the other side of the grill and cook over direct heat for 15 seconds per side.

7

Remove the chicken wings from your grill and serve them hot off the grill.

      Glad you liked them! And yeah, since cook times can vary, we recommend that you determine doneness based on the internal temperature of the meat.

    Had to substitute minced garlic and onion instead of the recipe's call for use of powders.Worked fine based on 1 clove of garlic = 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder and 3 tablespoons of raw onion to 1 teaspoon of onion powder.

    Otherwise, this is a great recipe! Best wings I've ever made or tasted.
