Prep: 35 min. Grill: 35 min.
40 whole chicken wings (about 8 pounds)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup Taste of Home – Great Flavors Italian seasoning
1/4 cup dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup pepper
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1 cup blue cheese salad dressing
1/2 cup ranch salad dressing
Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip section. Set wings aside.
In a small saucepan, bring brown sugar, hot sauce, butter and vinegar to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 6-8 minutes or until butter is melted and sauce is heated through. Cool.
In a gallon-size resealable plastic bag, combine sugar and seasonings. Add chicken wings in batches; seal bag and toss to coat evenly.
Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat 35-45 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting occasionally with remaining sauce.
In a small bowl, combine blue cheese and ranch salad dressing; serve with chicken wings and celery sticks. Yield: about 3 dozen.
