These hot wings are loaded up with that delicious Carolina-style barbecue flavor. You can adjust the amount of heat by adding more or less cayenne to the marinade.

Ingredients

  • 20 chicken wings
  • 1 1/2 cups/360 mL cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL Tabasco (optional)

Steps to Make It

  1. Mix all sauce ingredients together.

  2. Place wings with half the marinade in a resealable bag and refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours.

  3. Preheat grill to medium heat.

  4. Place on grill (a grill basket works great for this) and cook until done, about 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 165 F.

  5. Brush with remaining sauce starting halfway through cooking time until wings have fully cooked. 

  6. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
