Write a Review Read Reviews
  • Yields: 2–4 Servings
  • Cook time: 1 h
  • Prep time: 1 h 15 m


  • 2–3 pounds chicken wings (whole, or drums and flats)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt


  1. Place the chicken wings into a large resealable bag, then add oil, spices and salt. Mix well to combine and thoroughly coat the wings, then seal the bag and refrigerate for 1–3 hours.
  2. Prepare a pellet grill by loading the hopper with Kingsford® Signature Flavors Pellets with Chili and Cumin, and set to 275°F.
  3. Place the wings into the pellet grill, spacing them out to allow for maximum flavor absorption. Cook wings for 45–60 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F.
  4. If a deeper brown color is desired, you can turn the pellet grill up to 450° F for the last 10 minutes of the cook to encourage browning.
