Hot Wings - Island Time Style
Hot Wings are one of my favorite appetizers (and meals!) Use this twist on the traditional store brand hot sauce to toss your wings in next time! -Brittney
1/4 cup (or to taste) Island Time Hot Pepper Sauce
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
2 lb. chicken wings (fresh or frozen - I buy bulk at Sam's)
Ground black pepper
Oil for the grill
In a small bowl, whisk the hot sauce, butter, rosemary, and lemon zest.
Heat a gas grill to medium high or prepare a medium-hot charcoal fire. Season the wings with 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
Rub the grill grate with oil. Grill the wings, covered on a gas grill or uncovered over a charcoal fire, flipping every couple of minutes, until they’re browned and crisp and completely cooked through, about 20 minutes; if there are flare-ups, move the wings to another part of the grill. If the wings begin to burn at any point, reduce the heat to medium or transfer the wings to a cooler part of the grill.
As the wings are done, transfer them to a large bowl. Stir the sauce and toss with the wings.
Serve immediately with the blue cheese or ranch dip, celery & carrots and plenty of wet napkins.
