Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wings

Football Season is back (and so are Football Food Recipes)! Technically, we made this for the Bills/Jets Monday Night season opener…but that would also imply that these wings might have some sort of bad luck associated with them, so be warned! That said, these were the highlight of the game. They came off the grill very tender with nice char marks, and they had a nice bit of smokiness to them (due to a smoker box of applewood chips on the grill with them). Once the wings were cooked, we tossed them in some Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing Sauce before plating. From there, we dipped in Blue Cheese and served alongside a veggie infused quinoa.

Time: 30 Minutes


  • Chicken Wings (Drums and Flats)
  • Cayenne Powder
  • Salt
  • A little White Vinegar
  • Buffalo Sauce of your Choice
  • Dipping Sauce of your Choice (but we recommend Blue Cheese)


  • Pat your wings dry, and arrange them flat on a plate or in a sheet pan. Then, sprinkle some salt and cayenne atop.
  • Heat your grill to medium, and if using, add some applewood or hickory wood chips in a smoker box, and place that on your grill as it heats.
  • Once your grill is hot, arrange your wings, skin side down on the grate. Cook for around 10 minutes.
  • Turn the heat down to low, and flip your wings. Pour a couple teaspoons of vinegar in a small cup, and brush that over the top of your wings after flipping (skin side will be up). Cook for another 10 minutes.
  • When your wings have reached an internal cooked temperature of 165 degrees F, remove from the grill, and place in a large bowl.
  • Pour your wing sauce atop your wings, and toss to coat.
  • Plate, devour, and enjoy!
