Anyone Grill Their Wings? Thu, 06/19/08 3:45 AM (permalink)
I've been frying hot wings for ages, but recently started grilling them. Using indirect heat for about 20 minutes total on lightly oiled chicken wings, my family has a new fave. After pulling from the grill I soak in my homemade hot sauce (Red Hot, chili powder, butter, garlic, pepper and sometimes a bit of brown sugar or honey). It gives the crispness of the fried wings, but adds just a bit of smokiness. Anyone else out there grill their hot wings?

    I like your method. Try brining wings before above operation. It's tricky because if you use to much Kosher salt or brine them to long they easily get to salty. Use 1/2 cup Kosher salt/lb. of wings for 1 hour. You can adjust salt and time.

      With few exceptions, I grill my wings. I use 2 disposable grill screens (though I can get 2-3 uses out of each) and cook about 5 pounds on medium direct heat for about 20 minutes. I lightly oil them before cooking and usually just dump them in a large bowl and toss with my melted butter/hot sauce mixture when done. Occasionally, I'll baste them as they cook if I'm using a sweeter (honey,brown sugar based) sauce. If I'm forced inside due to weather, I use the oven method that ScoreReader supplied some time ago. pb

      The screens look something like this, only "cheaper":

        I grill my wings often and love them that way. Usually I'll fill up the grill with the wings, constantly moving them around so as to not burn them. I keep a big bowl of hot sauce next to me and as the wings get done I plop them in there. Mix them all around then serve them with bleu cheese. It's great

          My dad always usede the basket on the rotissarie of his gas grill---works so well that i do it to. He had two baskets so he could keep one going all afternoon during football season---trick is to marinate the ribs well--like all nitht-(he did teriaki and hot sauce both) and not to fill the basket to full so they would tumple and crisped up really nicely.

            I use a dry rub on them, throw them on the smoker for a couple hours @ 250, pull them off and drop in a deep fryer (for a minute or so) to crisp the skin up.

            I then toss is various hot sauce selections and serve. YUMMY!

              I bought this rack that I sometimes use. Works great for wings and legs.

                I don't like the smell of frying oil in my house so I either grill/smoke them or broil them. First I brine them for 1 hour in a solution of 1/4 cup each salt and sugar dissolved in a quart of water. I smoke them at 225 to 275 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours using pecan, cherry or hickory. Take them off and put them in a container with your warmed sauce of choice. Get the grill up to 500 degrees or so and put the wings back on for a few minutes while turning them. This just puts a nice slight char on the outside. Throw them back in more sauce if you like them wet.

                    I have grilled them on my Holland Grill with good results. Usually I get them already preseasoned and sauced from Festival Foods. Very good. The key with this too is the use fresh NEVER frozen chicken for this. Once its is frozen like you sometimes get it in the store it just isnt the same.
