Wally Wings: 5 Ingredient Grilled Wings

March 26, 2013

As Grilling.com’s One Bite Challenge enters its third week of competition, we turn to Chris Grove of NibbleMeThis.com for his take on one of the recent entries.


How would you like to win a trip to this year’s Memphis In May BBQ championship?   How about grilling lessons from World Champion pitmasters Chris Lilly and Melissa Cookston?

All you have to do is go to Grilling.com and enter your idea for 5 ingredients and a clever recipe name for the Kingsford One Bite Challenge for a chance to win*.  You don’t have to post pictures, a full recipe or anything.  Just the 5 ingredients and the title.  Walt S. of McKenzie, TN did that and this is what he offered:

grilled chicken wings with celery

Wally Wings

chicken wing drummettes

hot sauce


minced garlic

red pepper flakes

Here is my spin on Walt’s wings.  I used turbinado sugar to avoid the sugar burning, general wing pieces, and used buffalo sauce.   This is a good one for the basketball games going on.

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 50 min


Ingredients (24 wings):


1 dozen chicken wings, tips removed and cut into drumettes/wingettes

2 Tbsp turbinado sugar

1 tsp dried minced garlic

1 tsp red pepper flake

buffalo wing sauce, to taste




Set up a charcoal grill for indirect heat and preheat to 400f.

Season the wings with the chicken rub. Grill 20 minutes per side.

Toss with the buffalo sauce.

Grill direct over the coals until the sauce is set and wings are an internal temp of 170f, about 5-7 minutes.

Is buffalo sauce a single ingredient?  It is, if the rules don’t say it isn’t!  You can use a bottle of buffalo wing sauce.  The basic buffalo sauce that I use is 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup cayenne hot sauce, and 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce.

I’ll be at Memphis In May this year, privileged to be on the best team, Too Sauced To Pork.  You may have seen the team earlier this year on Cooking Competitions: Exposed on the Travel Channel.  If you are there, stop by and say hello.
