Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine dry ingredients in a plastic bag, shake to mix.
  2. Be sure to break-up chunks of brown sugar.
  3. If using whole wings cut them into three pieces and reserve tips for stock.
  4. Coat chicken pieces with oil, use enough to just coat the chicken.
  5. Sprinkle the dry rub over the chicken and refrigerate for 1 hour (minimum).
  6. Now, here comes the adjustable part, the longer you keep the spice on the wings, the hotter they get.
  7. I've even frozen the wings with the rub on, apparently the cold temps don't stop the process because those wings were almost too hot to eat!
  8. Using the direct method, grill the wings over a charcoal or gas grill (turning often) until done, 15 minutes or so.
  9. Can be done under a broiler as well without too much sacrifice in flavor, but more to clean up.
