I posted this in the grilling forum, I suppose it should be here.


I have been working on this recipe for a while and finally got it just right. My family went crazy for them. Thought it might make a great addition to the Super Bowl snack line-up.

Candy Chicken Wings:

24 oz. Wingettes (wings separated with the tips removed)
3/4 C Brown Sugar
1 t granulated garlic
1 t cayenne
2 t paprika
salt & pepper to preference

Start your kettle grill with a bucket full of coal, wait till they're nice and hot. When ready, dump the bucket on one side of the grill leaving the other side bare. In a large ziplock put all the dry ingredients, mix well. Add the wings and toss thoroughly, put them on the hot side the grill immediately. Cook the wings until the coating starts to caramelize and you get some black grill marks, turn and repeat. Move them to the cool side of the grill, cover and cook for 30-35 minutes (less time if you like your wings juicy, I like mine drier but not dry).

Let them rest a while before you eat them. They will be spicy and sweet with a brown sugar glaze.
