Grilled BBQ Chicken Wings
- Large-sized chicken drumsticks.
- Sweet Mesquite BBQ Seasoning Rub. The kirkland brand from Costco is highly recommended.
- BBQ Sauce like Sweet Baby Rays
- Large piece of aluminum foil
Preheat oven to 250°
Prep the chicken drumsticks by removing the skin. Use a paper towel to grip the skin and pull down toward the skinny end of the drumstick.
Add the skinned drumsticks to a bowl, cover liberally with the Mesquite Seasoning Rub. and toss around with a big spoon so all pieces are coated evenly. Transfer them to a baking disk and arrange head to tail. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.
Bake at 250° for 1hour 45 minutes. When done, remove chicken from the oven and allow to acclimate back to room temperature before uncovering. Discard the juices or use in another recipe.
I recommend doing the above step a day or two before the final grilling and consumption. Refrigerate the drumsticks in a large ziplock bag without the juices.
Brush the chicken wings with BBQ sauce and place on preheated grill. As they reheat, turn over and re-coat continuously with more sauce until chicken is hot and contains 2-4 coats.
