- Thoroughly whisk together all marinade ingredients in a pot. Allow mixture to come to a boil. Simmer until salt is dissolved and allow to cool to room temperature. Set aside a portion of the marinade to brush on the wings while roasting. Place the remaining marinade and chicken in a resealable plastic bag and refrigerate for 1-4 hours.
- Rinse the chicken pieces and pat dry. Lightly brush with olive oil to prevent sticking.
- Prepare grill for indirect heat and head to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the chicken on the indirect side of the grill (opposite charcoal). Roast 20 minutes and brush with marinade. Turn the chicken wings over and brush with marinade. Roast an additional 20 minutes.
- Move the wings to the direct side of the grill for five minutes to crisp up the skin, turning frequently. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
