Grilled Chicken Wings

Grilled chicken wings

Wings can be tricky on the grill. After a lot of experimenting, here is what I have been using lately to get some tasty results. 

1. In a shaker container (like an empty rub container) combine 3 parts seasoning and 1 part baking soda. The baking soda will help to dry out the skin and create a crispy wing. 

2. Season chicken wings by first covering lightly with olive oil. Then season liberally with the rub/baking soda mixture.

3. Let the chicken sit for about 30 minutes in the fridge, uncovered, for the rub to start to sweat. 

3. I then place on the grill at 300 degrees and cook until the wings reach 160 degrees internal temp. 

4. I then sauce the wings and place back on the grill and cook at 400 degrees. I then cook until around 185 degrees. 

Serve with blue cheese and ranch dressing for dipping, and carrots & celery sticks.
