BBQ Honey Sriracha Wings

Hosting a party? Simply craving some wings? Many people (like my husband) have a real weak spot for spicy chicken wings. I wanted to prepare some hot wings, but with some sweetness. Sriracha was my spice of choice and honey was perfect as it would also help the sauce stick to the wings. Lime juice and vinegar add the final touches. Note: These are only medium level spiciness, add more Sriracha on the side if you’re like my husband who likes to perspire on his forehead while eating spicy food!

Ingredients
For the wing sauce
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
  • 4 tablespoons Kirkland honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
For the wings
  • Approximately 24 chicken wings, already split and with tips removed (Costco sells packs of split wings at a very good price)
  • fresh ground Kirkland Tellicherry pepper
  • fresh ground Kirkland Himalayan Pink Salt

Instructions
  1. For the wing BBQ sauce, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Pre-heat your BBQ to at least 400F. We’re going to use the indirect method to grill these wings so as to prevent flare-ups.
  3. On half of the grill, coat the grates with canola oil and reduce the heat on that side to low.
  4. Place the wings on the greased half, and keep the other half of the BBQ at approximately medium flame. However, if the low setting at any point causes flare-ups, use a spray bottle with water to extinguish the flames and turn the heat on that side off.
  5. Close the lid and grill the wings for approximately 3 minutes. Flip, and apply freshly ground salt to the grilled side.
  6. Close the lid and grill for another 3 minutes, flip and apply freshly ground salt.
  7. At this point the wings are likely about half done. Baste the wings on one side with our honey Sriracha sauce. Grill for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Flip and brush sauce on the other side. Grill for another 2-3 minutes.
  9. At this point you can flip again and put on any sauce that is left over. Continue to cook the wings until they are done; if you cut into one of the wings the juice of the chicken should run clear.
