I love baking chicken wings but also love the flavor and convenience of cooking them on the grill too! No messy clean up at the end. And my favorite part is the added layer of smokiness that it adds to the overall taste of the chicken. So I switch things up every once in while. And since it’s summer I fire up the grill at least once a week.
This is truly a great way of enjoying chicken wings. And they are quite easy to grill too!
If you’re familiar with grilling, then this is a breeze to make. (And if you don’t want to grill of course you can bake them).
However, nothing beats a charcoal grill flavor in my books.
I use my 18 inch charcoal grill when I fire up the grill for the family. Low to moderate even heat works best when grilling these wings. You can easily get control over the flames that way. And it helps render out the fat from the skin making it crispy.
Get ready to fire up the grill for these chicken wings because they are simply….amazing!!
Moist, tender, crispy and SUPER flavorful to the bone with or without sauce the sauce.
The hot & spicy sauce gets heat from Caribbean pepper sauce & sweetness from honey, and a slight lime-derived tang that provides a phenomenal finishing flavor touch to these already delicious wings. So you definitely do want to make it.
