Grilling Wings

Share:

WINGS ARE ALWAYS A GREAT TAILGATE FAVORITE –. THEY’RE VERSATILE AND EASY TO MAKE, BUT A FEW TIPS CAN MAKE THEM EVEN MORE SPECIAL FOR YOUR GUESTS.

TWO KEY THINGS TO REMEMBER: BOTH HAVE TO DO WITH THE CHICKEN SKIN. ONE IS THAT A TEST OF A GOOD WING IS THAT IT HAS A LITTLE CRISPINESS TO THE OUTER LAYER. NUMBER TWO IS CHICKEN SKIN IS WATERPROOF, SO ANY SEASONINGS OR MARINADES WILL STAY ON THE OUTSIDE – UNLESS YOU CHEAT A LITTLE.

HERE’S A RECIPE I LIKE, BUT VARY THE FLAVORS TO TRY DIFFERENT THINGS THAT APPEAL TO YOU.

START WITH ABOUT A DOZEN CHICKEN WINGS AND RINSE THEM OFF, THEN DRY THEM OUT WITH PAPER TOWELS. NOW GET A SHARP KNIFE AND POKE A FEW HOLES IN THE SKIN AT A FEW PLACES ON EACH WING

NEXT MIX UP A TABLESPOON OF GARLIC PEPPER – THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERENT VARIETIES IN THE GROCERY STORE – ALONG WITH THE JUICE OF ONE FRESH LIME, A TABLESPOON OF OLIVE OIL, AND A TEASPOON OF HOT SAUCE.

PUT THE WINGS IN A BIG BOWL AND DUMP THE SAUCE MIXTURE OVER IT – THEN WORK THE WHOLE THING TOGETHER WITH YOUR HANDS TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING GETS COATED REALLY WELL.

LET THE WINGS MARINADE IN THAT MIX OVERNIGHT IN THE FRIDGE. ABOUT A HALF-HOUR BEFORE YOU GET READY TO COOK, SET THE WINGS OUT TO LET THEM GET UP TO ROOM TEMPERATURE AND GET YOUR GRILL MEDIUM HOT. REMEMBER, THOUGH, TO LEAVE YOURSELF A COOL SPOT TO MOVE THE WINGS TO DURING THE GRILLING PROCESS. SOME WILL GET DONE MORE QUICKLY THAN OTHERS, EVEN IF THEY’RE THE SAME SIZE. YOU’RE SHOOTING FOR DEEP GOLDEN BROWN – NOT BLACK, BUT DON’T WORRY IF THERE’S A SMALL BLACK SPOT OR TWO – THAT JUST MAKES THEM SEEM REAL. YOU’LL WANT TO COOK THESE FOR ABOUT A HALF-HOUR, TURNING THEM FREQUENTLY. THE OIL WILL HELP CRISP THE SKIN AND GIVE THE WINGS A NICE EVEN APPEARANCE. FOR A LITTLE EXTRA FLAVOR, BRUSH THE WINGS WITH YOUR FAVORITE BARBECUE SAUCE ABOUT 5 MINUTES BEFORE THEY’RE DONE. SERVE WITH SOME RANCH OR BLUE CHEESE DRESSING FOR DIPPING AND YOU’LL HAVE SOME OF THE BEST WINGS YOU’VE TRIED
