Glazed BBQ Wings

Wings are an all-time BBQ favorite and perfect for sharing at tailgates, parties, and all kinds of get togethers.  While slow-smoked wings are delicious, sometimes the grillmaster wants to smoke them hot and fast for a crispier texture.

Brother Ryan met up with our friend Marty Plute from Twisted Steel to cook up some double-rubbed BBQ wings, crisped at high heat on the Sear Station, and glazed in a spicy BBQ sauce for extra flavor and kick.  

Here’s What’s For Dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 lbs of wings, size and type to your liking
  • Butt The Kitchen Sink Rub
  • Twisted Steel Steak Appeal
  • Ryan’s Ragin’ BBQ Sauce
  • Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • ¼ stick of butter
  • Smokin Brothers Sear Station for high-temp cooking on a pellet grill

Steps:

  1. Make sure your wings are thawed (if frozen), rinsed, and dried to begin
  2. Set your Sear Station in your Smokin’ Brothers wood pellet grill, start the grill, and set it to 400°F
  3. In a pan or similar, lay out your wings and coat thoroughly on all sides with rub
  4. We then toss and press the wings together to pick up all the seasoning and to get full coverage on each wing, then set the wings aside
  5. In a grill-safe bowl, add the butter, 1 cup of Ryan’s Ragin BBQ Sauce, and 1/3 cup of Frank’s Red Hot 
  6. Set your wings on the sear station for crispy skin, and set the sauce bowl on the grill directly on the grates
  7. Cook wings to 120°F internal temperature, then flip
  8. Cook wings to 160°F internal temperature, then put all wings completely in the sauce, twist and stir, and return the wings to the Sear Station
  9. Cook another 10-15 minutes until the sauce glazes and caramelizes
  10. Remove and serve with your favorite sides and dipping sauces
