Let's get grilling

If using Kingsford® Signature Flavors Briquets

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 grill for two zone cooking using Kingsford® Signature Flavors Briquets with Chili and Cumin. Wait for about 15 minutes and look for ash on top layer of briquets. Pile the hot coals into one side of your grill, leaving the other side void to create a hot and a cool zone. Replace the grill grate and heat the grill to 400° F.

3

Place the chicken wings directly over the coals and discard the remaining marinade. Cook for 1-3 minutes, then flip the wings and cook other side for 1-3 minutes. This stage is to brown the wings and develop their color, but flip the wings earlier if they appear to burn.

4

Transfer the browned wings to the cool side of the grill, then close the lid and let the chicken finish cooking to a safe temperature (approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of the wings). The chicken wings are ready when they read 165°F internal temperature on a meat thermometer

If using Kingsford® Signature Flavors Flavor Boosters

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

Preparations using Kingsford® Signature Flavors Flavor Boosters Prepare a grill for two zone cooking using Kingsford® Original Charcoal (sold separately). Wait for about 15 minutes and look for ash on top layer of briquets. Pile the hot coals into one side of your grill, leaving the other side void to create a hot and a cool zone. Add 6 or more Kingsford® Signature Flavors Flavor Boosters with Chili and Cumin. Replace the grill grate and heat the grill to 400° F.

3

Place the chicken wings directly over the coals and discard the remaining marinade. Cook for 1-3 minutes, then flip the wings and cook other side for 1-3 minutes. This stage is to brown the wings and develop their color, but flip the wings earlier if they appear to burn.

4

Transfer the browned wings to the cool side of the grill, then close the lid and let the chicken finish cooking to a safe temperature (approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of the wings). The chicken wings are ready when they read 165°F internal temperature on a meat thermometer

If using Kingsford® Signature Flavors Pellets

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

If using Kingsford® Signature Flavors Pellets 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. 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.
