Hellloooooo Hickory Grilled Chicken Wings. Who here is a fan of grilling during the summer? To be honest we will grill all year round. It’s a favorite weekend activity for us. The hubs loves to blast some country music, the kids get in their swimsuits and we set up the little pools on the patio. It’s a fun time. Typically we will make burgers and hotdogs, but sometimes we need to switch it up a little. And that’s where these grilled chicken wings come in!
So when Kingsford® sent us their Kingsford® Original Smoked Hickory BBQ Sauce along with the recipe for the dry rub that’s included below we were all excited! The recipe was super easy to follow. It starts with a 3 Pepper Dry Rub. Then we grill the wings over indirect heat in the charcoal grill. Slather them with the Kingsford® Original Smoked Hickory BBQ Sauce, and that’s pretty much it! Doesn’t get any easier.
If you’re looking for some side dishes to go along with these beauties I do think a lovely Blue Cheese Coleslaw or even the Blue Cheese Hominy would be wonderful choices. If you’re not a fan of blue cheese you could always go for the Jalapeño Bacon Hominy!
The entire family definitely enjoyed these grilled chicken wings and they will definitely be making a repeat appearance during our summer grilling sessions!
