Burn Pit Gives You Wings 🍗

July 29th is National Wing day in the US and we thought we'd share our newest wing recipe!  We don't mean to brag, but it's really good!

 Give it a shot and let us know what you think!


Method: Indirect Grilling

Advanced Preparation: 4-12 hours for marinating the wings


For The Wings & Marinade:

16 whole chicken wings (about 3.5 pounds)
½ cup Sticky Fire Spicy Marinade 
½ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup olive oil (can substitute vegetable oil)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Ground Pounder All Purpose Garlic Seasoning

For The Mop Sauce:

8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter
½ cup Sticky Fire Spicy Marinade 

For Serving: Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing, Celery cut into 3-inch sticks

For The Smoke: 1.5 cups hickory wood


  • Rinse wings with cold water and dry with paper towels. Cut the tips of the wings and discard (or you can keep the wings whole). Cut each wing into 2 pieces through the joint.


  • Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a nonreactive mixing bowl. Stir in the wings and let marinate in the refrigerator, covered, for 4-6 hours or overnight. Make sure the wings are turned over several times so they marinate evenly.


  • When ready to start the grill or smoker, make the mop sauce. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir in the Sticky Fire.


  • Set up your smoker or grill for indirect heat.  Preheat to medium (around 325 degrees Fahrenheit)  and place the hickory wood on the coals or smoker box


  • When ready to smoke, drain the marinade off the wings and discard the leftover marinade. Oil the grill grates and place the wings on the hot grates over a drip pan, away from the heat. Cover the grill


  • Cook the wings until the skin is crisp and golden brown. Approximately 30-40 minutes. 


  • During the last 10 minutes of cooking, start basting the wings with the mop sauce


  • Remove the wings from the heat, transfer to a large place or bowl, and pour the rest of the mop sauce over them


  • Serve with your favorite dressing, celery, and beverage!
