This Saturday the 29th is National Chicken Wing day so I am going to show you an easy way to get restaurant quality wings without making a mess in your kitchen. We are going to need wings, seasoning Vegetable or peanut oil, and a pot we don’t care too much about as its going on the grill!
I am using two dry seasoning, Garlic Romano and Hot Buffalo Wing and two sauces, Smoky Habanero Chipotle and Sweet Honey Orange.Hot Buffalo Wings
You want to make sure you coat the wings really well with seasoning before you do anything, I am coating them all over and then vac packing them and letting them marinate overnight.
Turn your grill and put your pan with your oil in there and get the oil up to 375 and let them cook for about 10 minutes. The nice thing about this is that we just close the lid so if it spits its not going anywhere or burning the cook!
So once they are cooked we are going to take them out and let them drain on paper towels. A lot of people just serve them as is or re-season and serve and at this point that’s a mistake. What you want to do is get the seasoning you marinated them in and then simmer the wings in that seasoning for another 5 minutes at least. For the dry seasonings I used I am adding 1 table spoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar as well, for the sauces I am not adding anything….maybe Ill add a little butter because, why not?
The wings turned out excellent! I fried them for about 10 minutes each batch and cooked them to about 170 so they would be a little crisp. Keeping the oil at a steady temp was challenging but you can do it, just have to play with the grill temp to make sure it is in the 375 range!
So make some wings tomorrow to celebrate national chicken wing day, it’s fairly easy and doing it on the grill means no mess in the kitchen!Extra Fine Smoking Chips Alder, Apple, Hickory or Mesquite Smoking Chips Ready to Eat! Smoky Habanero Wing Sauce
