Honey BBQ Wings

5.0

Rather than create yet another recipe for Buffalo hot wings, this recipe uses local honey for a sweet twist and homemade BBQ sauce.

There are two methods particularly helpful for making these wings. The first method is fire roasting, which gives the wings a smoky flavor, requires less handling during the cook and is less likely to burn. To fire roas...

Ingredients

Whole Chicken Wings
10
whole chicken wings
1/4
cup dry BBQ rub
Honey BBQ Sauce
1
cup ketchup
1/2
cup local honey
1/2
cup brown sugar
2
tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 1/2
tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4
kosher salt
3/4
teaspoon black pepper
3/4
teaspoon chili powder
1/4
teaspoon dried onion flake

Directions

1

Prep the wings. Take the wings out of the packaging and wipe them dry. Place the wings on a rack and air dry them in the refrigerator for one hour. This step is optional, BUT it’ll give you the crispiest crust.

2

Preheat the grill to 375-400°f (medium high).

3

Make the sauce. Combine and stir the Honey BBQ Sauce ingredients in a medium pot over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes to let the flavors blend. Taste for seasoning and add a pinch or two of salt and pepper as desired.

4

Season the wings on all sides with the Dry BBQ Rub.

5

Grill the wings. Place the wings top side down on the grate and cook, flipping every 5 minutes, until the wings reach an internal temperature of 180°f, (about 20-25 minutes). Keep the lid closed when you aren’t actively handling the wings.

6

Sauce the wings. Brush some Honey BBQ Sauce on all sides of the wings. Cook long enough for the sauce to “set” on the wings, about 1 minute per side. The sauce can burn, so keep a close watch. I recommend using the upper rack if your grill has one, as the heat is less intense and it’s easier to determine when to flip them.

7

Remove and serve with the remaining Honey BBQ Sauce on the side.
