Tasty Grilled Chicken Wings after a busy weekend…..

Had a busy weekend…Soccer and then a  trip down to the boat on saturday.  Sunday  we did a walk to benefit the March of Dimes organization  following a training run Sunday morning on the C&O bike path.

As a funny aside…While running on the C&O towpath, I passed a few people that looked seemingly fit and like they could run much faster than they were.  In fact, some were walking.  So when I got back to my house I looked up what they could be doing (since they had race numbers on).  Turns out they were at about mile 95 of a 24 hour 100 mile race, which would explain why they looked miserable.   So much for thinking my 6 mile run was impressive.

Anyway, I grilled up some fantastic wings this weekend, modifying a recipe I found on the allrecipes website.  Basically marinaded the wings (purchased from Wegmans) in 50/50 soy sauce and italian salad dressing for 24 hours +.  Then coated liberally with Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin Rub and grilled over direct heat at 350.  Half I kept as is and the other half I coated with a Frank’s hot sauce/melted butter sauce.

Needless to say these were both OnPoint.  Would definitely make again.  For a more detailed recipe see below.

Serves: 2-3
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 4 lbs chicken wings
  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ½ cup robusto Italian salad dressing
  • 1 TBS minced garlic
  • ~2 TBS Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin Rub
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup Frank's buffalo wing hot sauce
  1. Cut up fresh wings (4lbs) into the three sections (wing tips are discarded or saved for chicken stock).
  2. wash well under cold running water then pat dry
  3. add wings to 1 gallon zip-lock bag and add the soy sauce, italian dressing and garlic (which was premixed in a separate bowl)
  4. marinade for at least 12-24 hours (longer the better), turning bag occasionally to evenly distribute the marinade.
  5. remove from marinade and sprinkle liberally with Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin Rub
  6. Add to preheated grill (350 degrees) to well oiled grates
  7. grill ~10-15 minutes per side but watching carefully to avoid too much charring.
  8. when done, remove from grill and either eat as is or coat with the hot sauce mixture.
  9. the hot sauce is prepared by melting butter with hot sauce under low heat.

    Wings definitely look and sound like they were OnPoint. I should have called you on my way home from DC to place a To-Go order!
