Most of us love BBQ and HOT WINGS... Why not put these together? Well guess what I have and they are awesome...

4 lbs of Chicken wings

Chicken rub:

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup smoked paprika
4 Tbsp Ancho Chili powder
4 Tbsp Lemon Pepper
4 Tbsp Garlic powder
2 Tbsp sea salt
Wing sauce:

2 cups franks redhot sauce - (or your favorite brand)
1 stick of unsalted butter
2 Tbsp honey

Rinse the chicken off and then pat dry. Mix rub together until well Incorporated and place the chicken in a large bowl and toss to coat evenly. Place on the BBQ using indirect heat one side will be set on high and the cooking side set on low. Close the cover and let the wings cook for approximately 15 min per side or until done.

For the Wing sauce, melt the butter in a small sauce pan and then add the honey and hot sauce.
Toss wings in the sauce and serve. I don't think you will be disappointed.
