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


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


  • 1 oz blue cheese crumbles
  • .5 fl oz buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp sour cream


  • 4 canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce



  • 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


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


  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 pepper 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 chill until ready to serve.

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

  5. Brush the cooking grates clean. 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.
