Looking forward to grillin these tonight. Doing over charcoal on a Weber. I have done a lot of low, indirect grilling but any other charcoal grillers out there have any advice? Thanks.
Hi Max, how did your wings turn out?
I made the recipe exactly as stated. I used cholula hot sauce and it was so good. I cooked the wings at 325 and they turned out perfect!!
What temp you you recommend grilling at?
I cribbed these directions on indirect grilling from our Grilled Spicy Citrus Ribs recipe. Same deal, even though it’s a different meat: “Prepare the grill for indirect heat: On a gas grill, heat the grill to medium heat 300-325°F with the middle burners turned off (if a 3 or 4 burner grill) or one burner turned off (if a 2 burner grill).”
For a charcoal grill, bank your hot coals on one side of the grill and place the wings on the opposite side. Ideally for this low-and-slow method, you want the temperature inside the grill to be between 280 and 325 degrees F.
Hope that helps!
Thank you Sara for the temp recommendation . I made these today and they are amazing. 325 was perfect. This recipes will be on my regular lunch rotation for my hub and I!!
Heather, thanks for letting us know! We’re really happy you liked this enough to plan on making it again.
Outstanding work! Enjoyed your writing!!
I’ve been looking for Big Barry’s wing recipe for years, can’t wait to try this! I’m old enough to remember when they were 10 cents lol. Point of interest the real Big Barry, who owned the restaurants, was a contestant on America’s Got Talent a few seasons ago.
Will be making this as many of my Friday nights in my twenties was spent at Big Barry’s! They also had the best salad with their own house dressing served in a wood bowl. Do you rennet the cauldrons the wing sauce was served in and the gold mining pans? Thank you for the memories ❤️
Tired this recipe for my sons HS Grad party. Everyone loved them from young to old. Many comments best wings ever had… We usually get wings from J Timothy’s- ranked second in US- so that’s pretty good. Used Franks Hot Sauce, left out salt in sauce. I was surprised they came out nice and succulent, I thought :60-:90 might create over-cooked dried out wings. This recipe and technique is a true keeper. Can’t wait for the next tail gate! I was told I Could open up a wing store with these wings,
This was sooo good. As you say the cooking time varied for me using a simple charcoal grill. I will be making this again and again. I love your recipes.
Elise and Hank you are two amazing chefs! I DON’T EVEN LIKE buffalo wings. I made them over the weekend for my husband, and after trying one to make sure the skin wasn’t ‘rubbery’ (as he calls it,) I was hooked! It’s a good thing I made a double batch as you suggested, because between just the two of us, I am embarassed to admit, we ate them all!
I need to rephrase my prior statement: I LOVE these buffalo wings!
Made these Sunday for an appetizer for my family. We all wished I had made more! I had tried grilling wings years ago and didn’t like them; don’t remember why. I don’t think my husband will let me make wings any other way now. I used a combination of hot sauces, a couple of tablespoons of Tabasco, a couple of tablespoons of Crystal and the rest Frank’s Red Hot and cooked them for about an hour and a half. Thank you for a great recipe!
OMG…they were a hit! The sauce was a little too hot for some of my family members, but they were so good. Cooking them on the grill with indirect heat is the secret. I couldn’t find my basting brush so I just threw all the wings into the sauce gave a good stir and then put them back on the grill for a few minutes. Poured the extra sauce over the wings once they came off the grill. Delicious!!!
Oh my those were so dang good I made ’em twice…. i used some chipotle tabasco and WOW! im sold on this recipe :) my mouth is watering just thinking about them!
I made these last night, Very good. Best healthy-ish wings I’ve had so far.
Hmmm,Tobasco has a new Buffalo sauce
I tried these yesterday with a blue cheese yogurt dipping sauce. The wings were awesome. I just wish I had taken your advise and made more than I thought I needed. They were gone way too quick.
Fantastic recipe! These were phenomenal, thank you.
We’re making these today. My husband is “all in” for the wing sauce, but I’m wondering what other sauce might be good, too. I like “buffalo” wing flavor, but not as much as he does! Maybe a honey hot sauce? I will experiment and report back…
I don’t have a grill or bbq cooker…just an old gas oven. How can these be cooked to almost the same effect in an oven. They sound so easy and delicious! Thanks!
I’d cook them on a sheet pan in a 250-275 degree oven. Should work fine. ~Hank
This is the first recipe that’s I’ve tried from this site. It turned out great! I will be making this again for the 4th!
