Grilled Wings for a Spicy Super Bowl

Good wings are a must for any Super Bowl party, but many recipes call for frying, which can be tricky to do at home. Avoid the hassle with a grilled wing recipe from Chef Jeremiah Bacon of Oak Steakhouse and The Macintosh in Charleston, South Carolina. Chef Bacon shares his secret for wings with a perfect hit of heat: the ingredients that are added first are what is tasted last, the “first-in-last-out rule.” Keeping that one basic rule in mind can help you adjust the recipe to your heat preference. If you like a hotter wing, add more heat to the rub by substituting ancho chili powder for a portion of the regular chili powder, or increase the amount of hot sauce added to the butter mixture. You could even use a hotter brand of hot sauce. For an added bonus, try Chef Bacon’s homemade Blue Cheese Dressing packed with fresh herbs and blue cheese crumbles to cool off those spicy wings.
