    First, I like hot/spicy food - but not the biggest fan of chicken wings. The wings are usually a good "carrier" for the sauce.

    I thought I'd give cooking my own a shot. They were the fantistic.


    1.Cut tips off of the chicken wings, wash in cool water and dry.

    2. Lightly coat wings in olive oil.

    3. Make dry rub from paprika, garlic, course black pepper and cayenne. Sprinkle rub on oiled wings and "pat" rub onto wings. Place in freezer bag, squeeze the air out, allow to marinade overnight.

    4. Hickory smoke (I used Jack Daniel's chips) for 45 minutes at 275 deg F.

    5. Make wet sauce. For 10 wings - use 1/2 stick butter, 5 tablespoons Louisiana hot sauce, course black pepper, and garlic. Microwave in bowl until melted and whisk together. (For extra spice, add 1 tablespoon Dave's "spooky hot" ghost pepper sauce, subtract 1 tablespoon Louisiana)

    6. Remove from smoker, dip in wet sauce, grill on medium-hot grill for ~4-6 minutes a side (until golden brown, or crispy to taste).

    If you like them smoky with some "heat" in the finish - you're done. Eat'em as soon as they are cool enough.

    If you like them spicy, with a smoky finish, brush on the remaining wet sauce - eat'em as soon as they are cool enough.

    Sounds good. Tuesday I was offered a challenge. Eat ONE ghost hot wing. I ate one, wife ate one. Yes my lips/tongue felt it for few minutes. (while we had free drinks) :) and some "trinkets"
    A family came by and the kid wanted to try a wing. They almost were going to give him one when I suggested. "Give it to the parent, If the PARENT gives it to kid you are off hook"
    The parent figured maybe not smart to give to kid. Funny thing we both were thinking of getting ANOTHER wing. They were too dang hot but did have goot taste (under the pepper stuff) So I had to get wings next evening.

    SOunds pretty delish!!

    Heres my recipe:

    trim wings as needed
    marinate at least 24 hours in mccormick chipotle marinade mix
    sprinkle with your favorite rub
    grill INDIRECT at 400 or better for 30 minutes
    flip
    grill INDIRECT again for 30 minutes
    grill 3 to minutes per side DIRECT
    remove from grill
    enjoy!

    The indirect grilling makes for a DELICIOUSLY crisp chipotle infused skin.
