Time for my next installment in the Napoleon Summer Grilling Series!

These wings are probably the best thing, or very close to it, that my husband has ever made. He’s been making spicy grilled chicken wings for a number of years now, but I finally got him to write up the recipe for me, and took a few pictures before they were inhaled by everyone. The kids LOVE these. They are a bit spicy, but nothing too crazy. Unless you are ultra sensitive to any heat, you should be able to handle it. 3/4 of my boys do, and the only one who couldn’t hates almost any and all condiments and sauces on his foods. No ketchup on hot dogs even. He makes exceptions for spaghetti sauce, but that’s about it.

I LOVE chicken wings. Buffalo Wild Wings was one of my very favorite places back when I lived near several of them in Minnesota. What I don’t like though, is having to fry the wings in order to get that crispy, delicious skin. Jeremiah solved that by grilling the wings to perfection, and then coming up with his very own sauce blend that will rival ANY that BW3’s can put out there, by FAR.

Spicy Grilled Chicken WingsSeparate the joints of the wings, throw out the end portion, and then season the wings liberally with the spice rub.

Place on your grill over medium heat, and turn the wings often to ensure even cooking without scorching.

While the wings are grilling, mix together all of the sauce ingredients. Toss the wings with the sauce and serve immediately, and with lots of napkins.

Don’t underestimate the amount of wings you will need, because people go a little crazy with these.
