Amazing Hot Wings pellet grill bbq recipe Amazing Hot Wings

Patti and I cook at the Murrieta Farmer’s Market every Sunday, mostly chicken and ribs. A few weeks ago just for something different for the Super Bowl we thought we would do up some hot wings. Boy, did those wings fly out of here. Something like 10 pounds were gone in less than 30 minutes.

Folks are making such a fuss over them we thought we would post the recipe. The secret is the sauce. We are using Grandville’s Extra Spicy Gourmet BBQ Jam. This jam is a nice spicy sauce that most folks can handle, not up front intense heat but a subtle pleasant after glow.

Grandville’s is more like a jam than a sauce. It is really thick and intense to brush onto something. So, we cut it down with a little Dr. Pepper to thin it out so I can brush it onto my wings. The Dr. Pepper adds another layer of flavor than blends beautifully with the Grandville’s.

Directions: Amazing Hot Wings

I like to give the wings a tuck, it makes them a little easier to handle and I think they look better when you serve them. But, this is your call, they cook the same. After I tuck them I give them a nice dusting ofpetesfirehousebbq Sweet & Spicy Rub, then onto the Louisiana Pellet Grill. I like to let them sit in the smoke for 30 minutes or so. Just enough to pick up some of that good smoke flavor. You can skip this part if you are hungry, but you’ll miss out on some fine flavor.

Then, I grill them at 350 degrees (180c) for 30 minutes or so until I reach an internal temp of 165 (USDA) I like 180-190 better. The meat flakes apart real nice at 190. The last 15 minutes or so I use a brush and dab my sauce on them, flip them and sauce the other side. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Cooking Directions: Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off. Turn the “Feed Control” High and press the “Start” button. Give the grill about 15 minutes to reach temperature and the grates to burn clean.

I like to smoke everything for at least 30 minutes with an hour being even better. After all the Louisiana Pellet Grill is an awesome smoker so use it for all the wood smoke flavor it will add to your food.

So after the grill comes up to temp and burns clean turn it back down to low. This will be around 180 to 200 degrees (84 to 95c). Place everything directly onto the grill and just let it hang out in the smoke and get happy for 30 minutes or so. This is referred to as “Smoking” or “Hot Smoking”, the temperature is 180 degrees (84c). 30 minutes of smoking is not enough to have any cooking effect on your meat but it is enough to open the pores so that the meat can pick up all the flavor of the smoke.

After 30 minutes, turn the (Feed Control) up to 350 degrees (174c) and pull the meat off the grill. Now you can cook your sides and pick up all of the wood fired flavor from the grill. I did an hour here at 350 (174c). When the sides are about half done put your wings back onto the grill.

When the wings reaches an internal temp around 180 – 190 (90c) pull them off, cover and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. I use aMaverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees, anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About Our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char-Griller, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
