These fire-eater chicken wings from Steven Raichlen’s The Barbecue! Bible are absolutely amazing (as are the other recipes in the 575 page book). Yes, they have some kick, but it’s not overwhelming at all. They’re perfect. I plan on using the rub recipe on whole roasted chickens and turkey from my Big Easy, it’s just that good.

Fire-Eater Wings

I cooked the wings for about 30 minutes in my Char-Broil Big Easy, then I tossed them onto a hot grill for a few minutes to crisp up the skin. You can skip that final step and still enjoy really fantastic wings.

I served my Fired-Eater wings with plenty of Ranch dressing for dipping. But you can skip that dippin’ and just enjoy the tremendous wing flavors as they are!

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
