  • 8-10 full chicken wings
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  • Lay some paper towels on a sheet pan. Place the wings on the paper towels and pat dry.
  • Combine the baking powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper. Remove the paper towels. Spread the wings in a single layer and sprinkle on all sides with the seasoning.
  • Place in the refrigerator uncovered for about 8 hours.
  • Remove from the fridge. Turn half of your grill burners to medium-high heat. Leave the other half of the burners off. Place the wings skin side down onto the side of the grill that is turned off (the indirect heat).
  • Grill for 10-15 minutes. Flip. Grill for 10-15 minutes. The skin should be nice and crispy and the meat will be very moist and juicy.
