BBQ Grilled Chicken Wings
From Cook's Country
To get crisp, well-rendered chicken wings, we tossed the wings in cornstarch (and spices) and grilled them over a gentle medium-low heat. We began grilling with the thicker skin side facing up so that the fat could slowly render, and then we flipped the wings at the end of cooking to crisp the skin. Also, though we normally cook white chicken meat to 160 degrees, wings are chock-full of collagen, which begins to break down upwards of 170 degrees. Cooking the wings to 180 degrees produced meltingly tender wings that we couldn’t stop eating.
Makes 2 dozen wings
If you buy whole wings, cut them into 2 pieces before brining. Don’t brine the wings for more than 30 minutes or they’ll be too salty.
