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!

Kingsford Hickory Grilled Chicken Wings Recipe

These Hickory Grilled Chicken Wings are coated in a spicy dry rub, grilled to perfection on the BBQ and coated with a layer of Smoked Hickory BBQ Sauce.

Ingredients

3-Pepper Dry Rub

  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp red pepper
  • ¼ tsp white pepper
  • 28 chicken wings, both flats and drumettes
  • 1 cup BBQ Sauce

Instructions

  • Stir together the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl. Season the wings, using all of the rub for extra hot wings or half of the rub for spicy wings.
  • Build a charcoal fire for indirect cooking using Kingsford® Charcoal by situating the coals on only one side of the grill, leaving the other side void. Preheat the grill to 450℉.
  • Place the wings on the grill over indirect heat and close the lid. Cook for approximately 30 minutes or until brown and crispy. Coat wings liberally with BBQ Sauce and cook an additional 2 minutes, allowing the sauce to carmelize. Remove wings from the grill, and serve with extra sauce.
