Grilled Wing Zingers Recipe
My husband fine-tuned this recipe - and the results were spectacular! These spicy-hot grilled wings are true party pleasers. You can easily adjust the heat level by altering the amount of chili powder. The wings take a little time, but they're worth it. -Angela Roster, Greenbackville, Virginia
