28 chicken wings
1 Food Prep
Keep it simple by seasoning your wings thoroughly with the BBQ rub of your choice.
2 Grill Prep
- Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets. Add Kingsford® BBQ Smoking Chunks or place a smoker tube filled with pellets onto the grill for extra smoke.
- Method: Two-Zone Method
- Temp: 275°F (Low Heat)
Carefully hold your hand about 5” to 6” above the grate, and refer to the temperature settings below:
• High Heat (450° to 550°F):
2 to 4 seconds
• Medium Heat (350° to 450°F):
5 to 6 seconds
• Low Heat (250° to 350°F):
8 to 10 seconds
Make sure your clothing doesn’t touch the grate, and always move your hand away from the heat before you feel discomfort.
When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.
3 The Cook
Cover the grill and adjust your vents to maintain a temperature of 275°F, then lay out your chicken wings on the grill over indirect heat, keeping a slight amount of space between each wing.
- Place the thermometer probe into the thickest part of your chicken wing without touching the bone.
Cook your chicken wings until they reach an internal temperature of 175°F, around 75–90 minutes.
Optional: Baste your wings with your favorite sauce and allow them to caramelize over direct heat for 1–2 minutes. Then, remove them from the grill and serve!
