Spicy Chicken Wings

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by Zetty66

Thes recipe originated in Mario Batali's NASCAR cookbook. I've changed it slightly to boil the wings before grilling for less fat and more "fall off the bone" tender. These have a kick, but not as hot as buffalo wings. The recipe orginally adds a white BBQ sauce traditional in Alabama. I personally didn't care for that portion of the recipe, but I'm sure there's a good one posted somewhere on Zaar.

This is a good rub if you like spicy which we do! I agree, it's not as hot as buffalo wings but it does have a bite. Will use this one again. Made for My 3 Chefs 2012.
