In a previous blog, we talked about direct grilling, which we typically think of when grilling things like steaks, burgers, and pork chops.

At Broil King HQ, we’re all geared up for Superbowl LVI this Sunday. Even those of us who aren’t the biggest sports fans are looking for any excuse to cook up some delicious, barbecued grub to share with family or a few friends.
Of course, one of the perfect party snacks is chicken wings. They are simple to share finger foods that can be customized to suit the taste of any guest. It’s easy to go the frozen, breaded route, but we prefer a fresh, grilled and perfectly seasoned wing, and it doesn’t take that much effort to get a superior snack. We’ve even listed some of the popular flavours our staff like to create at home to give you a bit of inspiration, or you can go ahead and wing it!
Prepare Your Wings
Start by rinsing your wings in water and a little vinegar, dry, and lightly salt them.
Coat the wings in olive oil and a little red wine vinegar. This will help to reduce sticking to your cooking surface and helps our rub adhere better.
Toss the wings in a large bowl to ensure that they are evenly coated.
Preheat your grill to 375˚F (190˚C) and then place your wings directly on the grids above the burners for direct grilling.
Note: if you want sear marks use the peak side of the grids or flip them over for the golden brown full surface sear.
Flip the wings after 10 minutes, and keep flipping every 10 minutes until the skin has a golden brown color.
Continue grilling for another 10-15 minutes until you see a consistent golden crisp, and the meat temps at 165˚F (74˚C). Don’t worry, while you can burn chicken wings you can’t over cook them. Take your time and get the perfect golden skin.
Remove your wings from the grill.
Toss your wings in any desired sauce or seasoning then enjoy! Feel free to put them back onto the grill once sauced to open up the flavor of the sauce with some char.
One part is equivalent to one tablespoon per pound of wings.
