3. Preheat the Grill

  • Heat the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 375°F).
  • Oil the Grates: Use a pair of tongs and a paper towel dipped in oil to grease the grill grates.

4. Grill the Wings

  • Place on Grill: Arrange the wings in a single layer on the grill.
  • Grill and Turn: Grill for 20-25 minutes, turning every 5-7 minutes until the wings are cooked through and have a nice char.

5. Sauce the Wings

  • Brush with BBQ Sauce: During the last 5 minutes of grilling, brush Q.R.F. Bold BBQ Sauce over the wings, turning them to ensure they are well-coated.
  • Caramelize: Let the sauce caramelize slightly but watch closely to avoid burning.

6. Serve

  • Plate and Garnish: Remove the wings from the grill, place them on a serving platter, and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  • Extra Sauce: Serve with extra All Ration BBQ Sauce on the side for dipping.

Tips for Perfect Wings:

  • Crispy Skin: Patting the wings dry before seasoning helps achieve crispy skin.
  • Indirect Heat: If using a charcoal grill, set up a two-zone fire to prevent flare-ups and ensure even cooking.
  • Flavor Variations: Try mixing in a little honey with the BBQ sauce for a sweet glaze or add a dash of hot sauce for extra heat.
