Crispy with a sticky coating....oh so good! A great backyard party food.

  • 2 pounds wings
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 1/2 tsp coarse pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup Franks Hot Sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp butter
  1. Wash wings and pat dry.
  2. In a ziplock bag shake together cornstarch, salt, pepper and paprika.
  3. Add wings to bag and shake well to coat.
  4. Place in a single layer in a glass pan. If not grilling right aways cover and store in refrigerator for up to several hours.
  5. Heat grill to 400ยบ. Cook wings over indirect heat for 1 hour, turning 3-4 times. (we use our Big Green Egg grill which keeps meat so moist, but you can use any BBQ)
  6. 10 minutes before wings come off grill, heat the Franks, sugar and butter in a sauce pan until the sugar is completely dissolved, and has cooked together slowly for about 10 minutes. 
  7. Remove wings from grill and place directly into sauce. Stir to coat and serve. 


  1. They look very good, do you think you can bake them instead?

    1. That is exactly what I was wondering and exactly what I am going to do.

    2. They should work fine in the oven. I think I'd baste them with some of the sauce during the baking if I did them in the oven.

  2. These look so good and so easy Kathy. I'm going to try the coating with cornstarch method and that sauce looks delicious too.

  3. I'm coming over right now...

  4. I assume that you take them out of the glass pan and put them directly on the grill with indirect heat.

  5. I'm coming over too....or did you and Marg eat them all? Oh they look so yummy!!!

  6. These look so....good, can I use something other than Franks Hot Sauce., not into the hot/spicy thing

  7. BBQ sauce of your choice with maybe a drop or two of Franks?

  8. has anyone made these ahead and then reheated them?
