3-Pepper Smoked Hickory Wings

  • Yields: 6 Servings
  • Cook time: 30 minutes


3-Pepper Rub
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp red pepper
  • ¼ tsp white pepper


Stir together the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl.

Season the wings with all of the rub for extra hot wings or half of the rub for spicy.

Build a charcoal fire on one side of grill, creating an indirect zone away from the fire.

When the cooker temperature reaches 450˚F, place the wings over indirect heat and close the lid. Cook for approximately 30 minutes or until brown and crispy.

Paint liberally with Kingsford® Original Smoked Hickory BBQ Sauce and cook an additional 2 minutes, about the right amount of time for the sauce to caramelize.

Remove from the grill and serve with extra sauce for your guests.
