Rotisserie Chicken Wings

I have cooked my share of wings and then some. On my Char-Broil Big Easy. And on a smoker. Sometimes, on a charcoal grill using the Vortex BBQ. Deep fried. Slow cooked. Any way, any time, I do love wings. Heck, I even put together a free eCookbook full of wings, using homemade and store-bought sauces. But until now I had never cooked wings using a rotisserie basket on my grill. One thing is for sure, this is not the last time I’ll be doing it, either. Perfectly crispy wings cooked up in no time, using a gas or charcoal grill. Nothing but yumminess here!
Rotisserie Chicken WingsI coated the wings in a just a bit of oil first. Then I tossed them with my favorite wing seasoning. That’s it. For the rotisserie all you need is a super hot indirect fire. You don’t want flame directly beneath the wings as they will drip, and that’ll cause flare-ups and burning. So keep the fire around the wings, but not below and your wings will come out as great as mine did.

Resist the temptation to open the lid to your grill while the wings cook. But I have to admit, I peaked once or twice because hey, it’s cool to see wings toss around in a basket. It’s the ultimate in food porn.

Also try my super-easy rotisserie whole chicken.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes. Also check out my always-growing list of my favorite store-bought wing sauces.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 pounds  chicken wings flats and drumettes separated, tips discarded
  • 2 tablespoons 

     vegetable oil



  • Your favorite wing seasoning

    I used my Fire-Eater rub

  • Your favorite Buffalo wing sauce

Instructions

  • Place wings in a large resealable baggie or container. Add the oil and seasoning. Seal and toss to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Fire up your grill with a rotisserie attachment. You do not want any direct fire beneath the basket. I put a disposable pan under the basket to catch and drippings. On a charcoal grill you'll want to keep the lit coals in front of and behind the rotisserie. For a gas grill you want any burner(s) to the left and right of the basket to be lit if your burners run from-to-back. If your burners run from left-to-right you want to have the burner(s) in front of and behind the basket to be lit. If you have an infrared burner above your basket, light it also and turn it to medium-high. All other burners should be on high.
  • Transfer the wings to the basket and place on your grill. Turn on the rotisserie and close the lid. You want high heat, so no peaking. Let the wings cook for 20 minutes before checking them. They should start to crisp and the meat will start to pull back from the bones. Mine ended up taking 25-30 minutes until they got how I liked them.
  • Carefully remove the wings from the basket and sauce and serve.

Heritage Fare Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce

This right here is one fantastic bottled Buffalo chicken wing sauce. Heritage Fare hit this one out of the park, big time. Just the right Buffalo flavor, just the right amount of heat. And just the right consistency, too. And that’s just as important as taste. Doesn’t matter how great tasting a sauce is if it all ends up at the bottom of a plate, and not on your wings!
Heritage Fare Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce
I can’t recommend Heritage Fare Buffalo Chicken wing sauce enough. I loved it. Sure, you can make a Buffalo wing sauce at home easy enough, but you’re going to have a hard time beating the taste and convenience of it right out of the bottle.

This sauce also makes a great marinade for grilled chicken. It’s not just for wings!

Copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Mango Habanero Sauce

Don’t fear the habanero. Don’t worry about the heat. Well, ok, maybe a little. But it’s really tamed by the fantastic mango sauce. This might well be the perfect combination of sweet and heat. This is what Buffalo wing sauce wants to be when it grows up. This copycat Buffalo Wild Wings mango habanero sauce is nothing but awesome.
Copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Mango Habanero SauceI used a can of mango nectar when I made this copycat Buffalo Wild Wings mango habanero sauce. It can be found in the Hispanic foods section of your grocery store. If you can’t find it, you might find it in the juice section. In a pinch, you can substitute mango that has been diced and pureed until very smooth. In that case you’ll probably need to strain the sauce before using.

Also try my copycats of BW3s spicy garlic and Parmesan garlic wings.
