Cooking for 4 people


  • 2 whole turkey wings (approximately 3 lb.)

poultry rub

  • 0.75 tbsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. ground mustard
  • 0.5 tsp. dried parsley
  • 0.5 tsp. dried oregano
  • 0.25 tsp. ground rosemary
  • 0.25 tsp. ground thyme

to serve

  • 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce

1 Food Prep

First, prepare your wings — turkey wings have 3 sections: the wing tip, the middle joint and the drumette. You can grill your turkey wings whole, but if you’d rather separate them, it’s easy to do.

Next, in a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients and prepare your poultry rub.

Finally, season your wings with the poultry rub.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets. Also add 3 or 4 chunks of Kingsford® BBQ Smoking Chunks. Be sure to soak the chunks in water for at least 30 minutes before spreading them onto the coals.

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 400°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • 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.

  • Place the turkey wing sections on the hot side of the grill and cook for approximately 5 minutes per side until browned and crisp.

  • Then, move the turkey wing sections to the cool side of the grill.
  • Cover the grill, and allow the wings to smoke for about 40 minutes, until cooked through, and have reached an internal temperature of at least 165°F on a digital meat thermometer.

  • Apply your favorite BBQ sauce to the wings and allow them to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the sauce is sticky.
