How to Make Mouthwatering Chicken Wings!

Brining Your Chicken Wings

  • Brine your chicken wings overnight.
  • Buttermilk makes an excellent brine! Cover the wings with buttermilk and refrigerate overnight.
  • Or add 1 cup salt, 2/3 cup vinegar and your favorite spices to 2 gallons of water and brine overnight.
  • Pat dry before cooking.

Grilling Chicken Wings

  • Keep the heat low. The skin on wings burns quickly.
  • Try to keep the heat around 350 degrees F and cook until the wings are a deep mahogany color - about 30 minutes.
  • While grilling, brush the wings with your favorite sauce every 5 minutes.

Smoked Chicken Wings


  • Cook in a closed smoke filled container with your favorite wood chips.
  • Cook at 200 to 220 degrees F for about 2 hours.
  • Smoked wings will be very flavorful and fall-off-the-bone tender.
  • If you like crispy wings, see the section on frying or grilling.

Oven Roasted Chicken Wings

  • Place a wire rack on the bottom of a baking pan so the wings don't touch the pan.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F. for 30 minutes, baste with your favorite sauce, then flip.
  • Bake an additional 20 minutes, then baste with your favorite sauce or rub.
  • Bake an additional 10 minutes.
  • ENJOY!

Braising Chicken Wings

  • Fill the bottom of a heavy stock pot with a single layer of wings.
  • Add enough sauce to barely cover the wings.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the sauce reduces to form a thick glaze.

Frying Chicken Wings

  • Fry for 15 minutes at 225 degrees F.
  • Remove wings from oil.
  • Raise oil temperature to 375 degrees F.
  • Fry wings for an additional 3-5 minutes until golden brown.
  • Frying will make your wings crispy on the outside and tender on the inside!

Tossing Cooked Wings in a Dry Rub or Sauce

  • If using a dry rub, place your chicken wings in a large bowl with some melted butter and shake.
  • If using a sauce, place your chicken wings in a large bowl and toss. Let the wings sit for 5-10 minutes so the sauce can thicken and caramelize.
