What’s a big football weekend without some party wings? Buffalo wings are a staple of any watch party or tailgate.
This is a simple and delicious wing recipe with a little backend heat. We seasoned our wings with some of my Garlic Jalapeno and Chicken rubs, grilled them off, and tossed them in our homemade buffalo sauce.
This recipe is guaranteed to be a party favorite.
Sweet, spicy, hot, or dry rubbed. Dipped in the sauce of your choice. Buffalo chicken wings are THE party food. Whether you’re taking an appetizer to a friend’s house for the big game, having a throwdown for 70 of your closest friends at your own house, or getting half a dozen people together for movie night, these wings impress everybody who bites into them.
Here’s my list of ingredients to make my grilled buffalo wings.
I cook my party wings on my Goldens’ Cast Iron using Royal Oak Lump Charcoal. You’ll need a 2-zone fire.
Watch the video I made to see everything I did when I cooked these party wings. I’ve also written out the instructions on the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Here are the steps for making my mouth watering grilled chicken wings:
Get your grill heated up to about 350 F and create a 2-zone fire.
I added the duck fat spray and a couple of layers of the rub seasonings to my wings, and mixed it all up real good.
Using tongs, I placed my wings on the cool side of the grill. I sprinkled a little bit more seasoning on them and let them cook for about 25 minutes.
15 minutes in, I added my 8 inch cast iron skillet to the hot side of the grill to get it hot.
Once the skillet was hot, I started on my tasty homemade sauce. I melted the butter, then added the garlic and Killer Hogs Hot Sauce. I mixed it up and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
I gave them about 25 more minutes, then I flipped every wing and stirred the sauce. I closed the lid back and let it all cook for 5 more minutes.
Pour the brown sugar into the sauce. The sweet flavor cuts some of the heat and adds a nice coating to my wings. I stirred it into the sauce until it had mixed all the way in.
I moved all the wings to the hot zone of the grill and sat the sauce on the cool side to simmer a little more. My wings cooked in the hot zone for about 4 minutes on each side.
Using my tongs, I pulled the wings off the grill into my bowl. I pulled the sauce off, too.
I poured the sauce mixture directly on the wings. I stirred them around and then tossed them several times to coat them completely.
Once they cooled down, we dug into these spicy, delicious wings.
With the taste of buffalo sauce and the hint of garlic mixed with the grill smoke, these wings were tender, juicy, and flavorful. They were an instant classic at my house. If you make them, they’ll be famous at your place, too.
Depending on how hungry everybody is, plan on each person eating 4 to 8 wings.
Let the buffalo wings cool completely and store them in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 3 days. Heat them on low in the oven or for 2-3 minutes in the microwave.
I used a few helpful kitchen tools to make my wing recipe. Here’s my list.
Golden’s Cast Iron
Large aluminum bowl
Lodge 8 inch cast iron skillet
Get your grill up to 350º and create a 2-zone fire.
Spray your wings in Duck Fat Spray and season with Heath Riles BBQ Chicken and Garlic Jalapeno Rubs.
Place your wings on the cool side of your grill. Sprinkle a little more Heath Riles BBQ Chicken Rub over your wings and let them go for about 20-25 minutes. Place a cast iron skillet on your grill the last 10 minutes to start heating up.
After 20-25 minutes, place your Killer Hogs Hot Sauce, minced garlic, and stick of butter in a cast iron skillet. Let that go for about 10 more minutes.
After about a total cook time of 35-40 minutes, flip your wings and stir your sauce. Close your grill lid for another 5 minutes.
After 5 more minutes, stir in your brown sugar into your sauce. Pull your sauce over to your cool zone, and move your wings over to the hot zone on your grill.
Cook your wings on the hot zone for about 3-4 minutes on each side. I pulled my wings once they were hitting 198-200º internally.
Toss your wings in your sauce and serve.
