  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 chicken wing portions 6 chicken wings, tips removed, cut into flats and drums


  • Set grill to medium heat ( 350°F .)
  • Combine all of the ingredients other than the wings in a small bowl and stir until they are thoroughly mixed together.
  • Pat the wings dry and toss them with the rub, pressing it into the wings so that it sticks.
  • Oil the grates with a high heat tolerant oil. Place the wings on the grill. Cook for 10 minutes, then flip. Cook for another 10 minutes, until the internal temperature of the wings is 165° F.


It can help give you a more even cook to let the wings sit in a covered tray or bowl on the kitchen counter (NOT in the direct sun next to your grill) for about 20 minutes to take the chill off before cooking.
If one or two of the wings start to burn, move them slightly off of the direct heat to continue cooking. If all of the wings start to get too much char, lower the heat to 300. Every grill is different and you may need to play around with the heat for your specific grill to get the char you desire.
