Sweet BBQ Rub Chicken Wing Recipe!

Well for super today I decided to make some chicken wings on the BBQ. These are pretty easy to make and are a nice appetizer especially for game night. I made my own rubs for this recipe due to the fact its more economical and you know exactly what goes in it! This recipe I got from a friend at a tailgating party and its pretty tasty rub! Well let’s get cooking!

Sweet BBQ Rub Recipe

  • ¼ cup kosher salt
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar firmly packed
  • 2 tbsp raw sugar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground ginger


Stir and mix all the ingredients very well! This rub keeps for 1 month in a air tight container.

How to cook your chicken wings:

Place your wings in a Ziploc bag then add a generous amount of rub in the bag;

Shake the bag to evenly coat your wings;

Now let them sit in the fridge for 1 hour so the wings can absorb the flavors;

Meanwhile pre-heat your BBQ for indirect cooking and for a temp of 235 to 250 degrees Fahrenheit;

(P.S. you can still do these on a propane BBQ. All you have to do is light one side and place the meat on the opposite side to make it indirect.)

I now place a cherry wood chunk on the hot cold to smoke my wings for 35 minutes;
(Propane bbq users you can use a smoke box or tube.)

It’s now time to flip them and to raise the temp to 375 Fahrenheit to finish the cook for another 30 minutes or until the internal temp reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Its also good practice to let them sit for a few minutes before serving to get the juices back in!

I like serving them with White BBQ sauce as a dipping sauce which the recipe can be found here: Alabama-white-bbq-sauce-recipe on my blog! Or you can mop them with my jack-daniels-bbq-sauce recipe for the last five minute of the cook. 

Happy Grilling and Bon Appetite!
