Chicken Wings

Level: Easy

Total time: 15 mins


-        12 organic free-range chicken wings

-        3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

-        2 tbsp salt and ground black pepper

-        BBQ sauce of your choice

–     BBQ chicken rub

-        ¼ cup brown sugar

-        1 tbsp chili powder

-        1 tbsp paprika

-        2 tsp garlic powder

-        2 tsp onion powder

-        1 tbsp salt


  1. If you have a charcoal grill and chimney starter, remove the top grate of your grill for food and place your chimney inside the grill.
  2. Fill your chimney with hardwood charcoal all the way to the top.
  3. Slide a piece of paper beneath the chimney and light the paper using a match or small lighter through the hole at the bottom.
  4. Wait till charcoal is hot and ready. You’ll know it’s ready when the charcoal starts showing shades of gray.
  5. Pour your charcoal into the grill and adjust your grill openings to rise into a medium heat of about 250-300 F.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, chili powder, paprika, garlic, onion, and salt. Mix until it’s well blended. 
  7. Drizzle a bit of olive oil onto chicken and toss it into the bowl of rub (evenly coat). 
  8. Place chicken wings on the grill, flipping them every 5 minutes to cook evenly.
  9. After about 10 minutes, cut the chicken slightly to check if there’s any pink coloring inside. Your grill should cook chicken fast, so keep flipping until you see the inside is white.
  10. Once chicken is cooked through and you see the white coloring inside, pick it up off the grill.
  11.  Place chicken in a clean bowl, pour over the BBQ sauce of your liking and toss them around till coated.
  12. Serve and enjoy.
