PLANK GRILLED LEMON PEPPER CHICKEN WINGS RECIPE

BY: ANDREA ALDEN & ORIGINALLY POSTED ON NAPOLEON.COM

These Plank Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings are always a hit, whether you’re having them for dinner or sharing them at an event. I tasted these chicken wings for the first time at a bar and grill called Taco Mac, in Atlanta, while visiting my Father and instantly knew I needed to try making them myself. Now, most restaurants will deep-fry their wings, however, this is a BBQ Recipe and make these on the BBQ, we shall! To get that delicious crispiness that deep frying would give us, it is imperative that you coat the wings with a mixture of salt and baking powder. Doing this, then air-drying the wings will remove moisture much like when we made Peking Duck on the grill.

PREP TIME

5 Min

COOK TIME

40 Min

FEEDS

2 - 4

INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp.
baking powder
2 tsp.
salt
1 lb.
chicken wings
4 tbsp.
lemon pepper
1 tbsp.garlic powder
1 tbsp.onion powder
2 tsp.
bone dust
2 tbsp.oil
2 to 4Cedar Planks, soaked at least 30 min

DIRECTIONS

1. The night before, toss wings in a mixture of salt and baking powder. Place on a rack set into a baking sheet and allow them to dry in the fridge, uncovered until you are ready to grill. Approximately 24 hours.

2. Preheat your grill to 450°F, preparing to use indirect cooking. If you have three burners, leave the middle one off. Only two? Turn off the one farthest from the tank when the grill is heated. Preheat the planks on the grill while you season the chicken wings.

3. In a dish, combine the lemon pepper, bone dust, onion and garlic powder. Toss the wings with the 2 tbsp. of oil; making sure that each one has some oil on it.

4. Lightly coat each chicken wing by rolling it in the seasoning mixture. Once coated, arrange the wings on the soaked planks.

5. Plank roast the wings for 20 minutes. Flip and continue plank roasting for another 20 minutes or until reaching internal temp of 165°F and the outsides are crispy. Serve with your favorite beer and some veggies and dip!

These Plank Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings not only bring back great memories of travel and family, but they pack a flavor that pairs nicely with an IPA or pilsner. Share with a good friend, or double/triple the recipe when grilling for a crowd. What is your favorite chicken wing flavor?

PRO TIP: If for whatever reason, you don't have time to dry the wings overnight, you can steam them for 10 minutes. Bring a couple inches of water to a boil in the bottom of a pot. Season the wings with a little salt and perhaps a little pepper. Place a steamer basket over the water and steam the wings for 10 minutes, remembering to leave space around each wing for the steam to get at them. Remove from the steamer basket and dry on paper towels before oiling, seasoning, and grilling.
