Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 1 garlic cloves

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 2.5 lb chicken wings

Oil and Spices

  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1.25 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2.5 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp paprika

Condiments

  • 4.5 tsp cider vinegar
  • 2.5 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise

Dairy

  • 0.5 fl oz buttermilk
  • 1 oz crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tbsp sour cream

Other

  • 4 canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce

Ingredients

Paste

  • 4 teaspoons minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1½ teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 16 chicken wings, about 2½ pounds total, each one cut in half at the joint, wing tips removed

Hot sauce

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or minced
  • 4 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 2½ teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Dressing

  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • ½ teaspoon cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine the paste ingredients. Add the wings and stir to coat them all over with the paste. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  2. In a heavy, small saucepan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the garlic and stir until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the vinegar and hot sauce and simmer for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to large glass or stainless steel bowl.

  3. In a medium bowl combine the dressing ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  4. Prepare the grill for direct and indirect cooking over medium-high heat (about 450°F).

  5. Remove the wings from the bowl and wipe off most of the paste. Grill the wings over direct medium-high heat until grill marks appear, about 4 minutes, turning once. Move the wings over indirect medium-high heat and continue grilling until the meat is no longer pink at the bone and the skin is crisp, about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Keep the lid closed as much as possible during grilling. Transfer the wings to the bowl with the hot sauce; turn to coat. Return the wings to the grill and cook over direct medium-high heat for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and serve with the blue cheese dressing.

Om nom nom

I have made wings a lot of different ways but this is my favorite. Very tasty and easy. Doesn't get any better for football Sunday than these guys and a cold beer.

First Wings Awesome

I grill 3-5 days a week, but have never done wings. Got this recipe of the week and decided to go for it. Since it was the weekend, I used the Performer instead of the Genesis. The wings came out fantastic. Good moisture, crisp skin , great flavor with a mild-medium spice. My wife and son both said they were the best wings they've had. They have no problem telling me when thing are not good. Glad we picked enough wings to make again today.

Great wings, simple and easy to make

This was my first Weber recipe effort, so I followed the recipe by the book. The wings came out fantastic and are among the best that I've ever had. Definitely on my short list for quick and easy meals. Thank you Weber!

Wow!

I typically only like dry wings (messy and all), but I decided to try this based on the reviews and the ingredients. I just made them, and I have to say "WOW!"....these are delicious! I'm cooking on a natural gas Summit. I thought I had onion powder, but I didn't, so I very finely minced 1/4 of a white onion very fine and that worked out just fine. I did a double batch. I love that you can make the blue cheese sauce (delicious as well!) in advance, and even the oil. I was expecting the oil and hot sauce to be more saucy, but it truly is more of a chili oil you're making. When you dip the wings in that and put them back on direct heat they flare for only a moment - just enough to sear, then the flame dies down and they are fine. Frankly I don't think you would need to dip these in anything because the flavor is so amazing, but...to each their own. I will definitely be making these again! Thank you to whomever contributed this from/for Weber!

Great Wings!

We try many of the recipes of the week. We also grill or smoke 3-5 days a week year round. I had never done wings before. Saw this recipe and thought it sounded good. Everyone in our household thought they were great, and I've put these wings into the grilling rotation. The wings had just enough heat and turned out crispy on the outside but still juicy on the inside. We really like the Weekly recipes because it ads diversity to our menus.

Great 2nd place wings

These tasted wonderful and weren't terribly spicy. I followed the recipe precisely except I didn't bother with the blue cheese dressing. In my opinion, the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings with Sriracha, Honey, and Lime are better and easier (http://www.weber.com/recipes/starters/sweet-and-spicy-chicken-wings-with-sriracha-honey-and-lime). That's my 2 cents. Still, these wings easily get 5 stars from me!
