Hellfire Chicken Wings

3 lbs. Chicken Wings

2 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil


1 Tbsp. Paprika

2 tsp. Brown Sugar

1 tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Black Pepper, freshly ground

1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

1 tsp. Onion Powder

1 tsp. Granulated Garlic

1 tsp. Celery Seed


8 Tbsp. BUtter, unsalted

2 - 4 Jalapeno Peppers, thinly sliced crosswise

1/2 cup Cilantro Leaves

1/2 cup Hot Sauce


Cut the tips off wings and discard. Cut each wing into two pieces through the joint, giving you a meaty “drumette” and a “flat”. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and pour the oil over the chicken

Make the rub: In a small mixing bowl, combine the paprika, sugar, salt, black pepper, cayenne, onion powder, granulated garlic, and celery seed.

Sprinkle over the chicken and toss gently with your hands to coat the wings.

When ready to cook, set the temperature to 350°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes

Grill the wings for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the skin is crisp and golden brown and the chicken is cooked through, turning once halfway through the cooking time.

Make the sauce: Melt the butter over medium-low heat in a small saucepan. Add the jalapeños and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the cilantro & hot sauce.

Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat. Enjoy!
