2 lb chicken wings
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/2 tablespoon Kosher salt
1 tablespoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 drops of hickory liquid smoke (optional)
Adding a few drops of liquid smoke to these wings will make your guests think you have a smoker hidden in your backyard.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30-40 minutes
Mix garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, cayenne, and black pepper in a bowl. Add liquid smoke only if you’re not using an outdoor grill. Pat dry wings and coat with the dry rub and allow to marinate for at least one hour in the refrigerator. Preheat gas grill to medium-high. Place wings evenly on the grill and allow the rub to caramelize a bit. Then lower the heat and allow to cook for about 30 minutes. If cooking indoors, preheat oven to 400degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and arrange wings in an even layer. Bake for 20 minutes then flip and bake for another 15 minutes.
