How to Make BBQ Wings?

Cooking chicken wings on an outdoor grill is a snap.

  • Wings should be marinated before cooking.
  • Make sure the marinade isn’t diluted by patting the chicken wings dry with paper towels.
  • Garlic, dry rub, honey, and soy sauce marinate the wings. Then marinate overnight in the fridge after thoroughly mixing everything together.
  • Grill the chicken wings for around 20 minutes at 500-600°F on an outdoor grill the next day.

BBQ Tips for Perfect Barbecue Wings

Many individuals burn their BBQ chicken wings, which are supposed to be a dark brown hue.

It’s not just unhealthy to eat the carbon on the charred chicken wings, but the wings are black and overcooked.

This is how I always make the most delicate BBQ chicken wings.

  • Begin by preheating an outside grill to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Assemble the chicken wings in a single layer on the top rack, skin side up and away from the heat source.
  • The bottom of the wings should be cooked first. The skin on the bottom of the wings is thinner, resulting in less oily drippings. This will keep the wingtips from getting scorched by the bottom-up heat.
  • The temperature will rise from 500°F to 600°F if the lid is closed. Before flipping the chicken, cook it on the grill for 5 minutes.
  • Ensure that the lid is open to check for doneness. Chicken wings’ size determines the time required to cook your chicken wings on the grill.

Frequently Asked Questions

Barbecuing vs. Grilling: What’s The Distinction?

  • Barbecuing and grilling are two distinct food preparation methods requiring different approaches to the art of cooking.

  • Grilling is when the food is cooked over an open flame with the lid raised and the heat coming directly from the love.

What if I want to use the entire chicken wing?

  • You can keep the wingtip by cutting the wingettes into one piece.
