Wing Wednesday: BBQ Wings

Wing Wednesday rolls on.  This week it's BBQ Wings.  You can make these on your grill, in your oven or even smoke them (my preferred method).  As long as you have some wings, some sauce and some heat you can be feasting on these savory BBQ wings in no time!

By "no time" I mean about 5 hours.  These wings get marinated in a buttermilk brine prior to cooking, so plan ahead.

What you'll need

  • 1 pound of chicken wing pieces, tips removed
  • BBQ Sauce
  • 1 quart buttermilk 
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt 
  • 2 tablespoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle pepper powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Arrange the wings in a pan suitable for marinating, foil or glass is okay.  Prepare the rub by combining the pepper, kosher salt, sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, chipotle and chili pepper in a bowl.  Sprinkle the rub over the wings, flip the wings and sprinkle the other side.  Save the remaining rub for a later step. Leave the wings in the pan.  Allow the rub to settle into the wings, about 20 minutes.  Cover the pan and refrigerate the wings for 2 hours.

Prepare the brine by combining buttermilk and salt in a bowl, mix together for about 20 seconds.  Remove the pan of wings from the fridge and pour the brine over the wings.  Cover and place back in the fridge for 2 hours.

After two hours warm up your oven, smoker or grill to 250 degrees, set up for indirect cooking.  Remove the wings from the brine, do not rinse off, sprinkle the rub on them again, both sides.  Once your oven, grill or smoker is up to temp place the wings directly on the cooking grate.  If cooking in an oven place the wings on a foil lined cookie sheet.

Cooking time will be about an hour; the wings should reach 165-170 degrees in that time.  With 15 minutes to go warm up the BBQ sauce over medium-low heat.  At one hour remove the wings from the cooker, place in a large bowl and pour the sauce over the wings, toss to coat.

Crank the heat in your cooker to high (oven to broil, grill to 450, smoker on high).  Once at that temp place the wings back on the grates for a few minutes.  Check for color and pull from cooker.  Serve.
