TIPS

I love the Char-Broil Oil-less Turkey Fryer for wings. You can set the wings in the canister and cook them without having to nurture them. They are super crispy outside and nice and juicy inside every time.

If you don't have a Char-Broil Oil-less Turkey Fryer, you can grill the chicken wings on a gas or charcoal grill. Heat the grill to medium heat and cook the wings turning occasionally for 20-25 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165.

There is enough Nashville Hot Sauce with this recipe to grill up about a dozen wings, if you're feeding a larger crowd.
