These wings are coated with cornstarch for crispiness and seasoned then placed in the grill, they are easy to make, come out very delicious with a side sauce and they are ready in just 30 minutes. To begin get fresh wings and break them down into small wings by exposing the joints and take a knife and cut through it and separate them. Do the same for all the wings you have.
Get a zip lock bag and put corn starch in the bag. Add barbeque rub in the zip lock too. Take the zip lock and mix it up a little bit then put the wings in the zip lock and mix them in together. Take them out and put them on a drying rack to shake the excess off. Add a little seasoning to the dried wings that you placed on the rack without coating them.
Put the seasoning to the coated batch of wings too. Let the wings sit for a few minutes and air dry. As they dry you can set up the weber. Set up a weber kettle with a charcoal vortex accessory to create indirect high heat. Fill the vortex with charcoal and light a fire starter to get the coals hot. After 20 minutes the grill should be ready to cook.
Take the lid off and arrange the wings (the once seasoned with no corn starch and the ones with corn starch) around the outside close to the edge of the grill (not over the coals). For smoke flavor, place 1 piece of wood over the coals. Cover the grill with the lid making sure all vents are open 100%. Cook the wings for 10 minutes and flip the wings. Continue cooking and flipping the wings as needed until the outside is brown and crunchy.
The ones without the corn starch are looking good. Check them every 5 minutes to avoid overcooking. At 25 minutes give them the last flip. Cover them and give them 5 minutes. When it is a total of 30 minutes the wings with the corn starch are crispy and the ones with the rub are looking good. Get the wings from the grill to a dish or tray covered with a paper towel.
You can serve them with or without spicy garlic wing sauce. To make the sauce, get a small pot over medium heat and melt the butter. Add hot sauce, garlic, honey, onion, & Worcestershire. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Get a separate small bowl and combine corn starch and water into a slurry. Slowly add corn starch mixture to the sauce while continuously stirring.
Allow sauce to come to a slight boil and remove from heat. The sauce will thicken as it cools. You can use the sauce immediately on wings or store in an airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator.
