Grilled Wing Zingers Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Grill: 35 min. YIELD:40 servings

Ingredients

  • 40 whole chicken wings (about 8 pounds)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1/4 cup pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup blue cheese salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup ranch salad dressing
  • Celery sticks

Directions

  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip section. Set wings aside.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, bring brown sugar, hot sauce, butter and vinegar to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 6-8 minutes or until butter is melted and sauce is heated through. Cool.
  • 3. In a gallon-size resealable plastic bag, combine sugar and seasonings. Add chicken wings in batches; seal bag and toss to coat evenly.
  • 4. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat 35-45 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting occasionally with remaining sauce.
  • 5. In a small bowl, combine blue cheese and ranch salad dressing; serve with chicken wings and celery sticks. Yield: about 3 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
