Smokey Sweet Chicken Wings

Joe absolutely loves Glory Days wings. Unfortunately, we don't have a Glory Days in Omaha. A coupe of weeks ago I stumbled across this recipe on Steamy Kitchen. Obviously, I've never seen the recipe for Glory Days wings, but this looked like it could be a good substitute. Joe and I were not disappointed. In fact, he asked me to make them again the very next day. Given that I had just finished a 15 hour day at the hospital, I told him he had to wait. Either way, it's always a good sign when Joe asks me to make a new recipe again.

The original recipe doesn't make a sauce. Joe loves to dip his wings in a little extra sauce, so I added that here.

Recipe adapted from Greg Remp on the BBQ Central Radio Show.



3 pounds chicken wings, joints separated, tips removed (save for stock)

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper


1/2 cup brown sugar
1 clove mince garlic
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
1.5 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoon chicken broth or water



Mix all of the ingredients for the dry rub. Rub on both sides of chicken wings. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (makes clean up so much easier!). Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Flip and bake another 15-20 minutes.


Melt butter in small sauce pan. Add ingredients and any remaining rub. Stir until melted. You may need to add more or less water/chicken broth to get to desired consistency.
