These hot wings are loaded up with that delicious Carolina-style barbecue flavor. You can adjust the amount of heat by adding more or less cayenne to the marinade. Grill hot and fast.

  • 1/2 cup/120 mL ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL cayenne powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons/7.5 mL sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.6 mL black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL Tabasco (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Mix all sauce ingredients together.
  2. Place wings with half the marinade in a resealable bag and refrigerate for 1-3 hours.
  3. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  4. Place on grill (a grill basket works great for this) and cook until done, about 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 165 F.
