Grilled Nashville Hot Chicken Wings

Ma brings me the seasonal magazine her supermarket offers shoppers, I love looking through it for nuggets of inspiration! These Grilled Nashville Hot Chicken Wings are my slight twist on a recipe I saw in the magazine for drumsticks. What makes them different than traditional wings? The addition of olive oil, garlic powder and smoked paprika. I suggest mixing the sauce and allowing it to mingle while you heat up the grill and cook the chicken.

I used my 'mess free, stress free method' of cooking chicken on the grill HERE, I placed it on a disposable aluminum tray. 
Cooked the drumlettes closer to the direct heat, and wings a little more towards indirect heat since they cook faster. 
No flare-ups, and the greasy tray... Well that just gets tossed, I thought you might like that:@)

I do have several brands of hot sauce to choose from in the fridge... Yep, I do.
Did you know that Sweet Baby Ray's has a hot sauce out now? 
It's thicker than most, coats things well, is nice and salty and a great addition for anyone that loves some heat! 
I used the SBR's for this batch of wings.
The chicken can really be cooked via any method you like best. 
As Sweet Baby Ray's would say... It's all about the sauce:@)

~printable version~
1/4 C hot sauce-your favorite brand
1 Tblsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne-I just added a shake or two
3 lbs chicken
salt and pepper, or seasoned salt
  1. Whisk first six ingredients in large bowl, set aside.
  2. Heat grill to medium hot. 
  3. Sprinkle chicken with S&P or your favorite seasoned salt-I used Lawry's Original.
  4. Place chicken on disposable foil pan and arrange so drumlettes are towards one side and winglettes to the other side.
  5. Place pan on grill with drumlettes closer to direct heat, winglettes towards indirect heat.
  6. Close grill lid, turn chicken after 10 minutes.
  7. Grill with lid closed 10 minutes more or until cooked through.
  8. Add hot chicken to sauce, toss to coat chicken well.
