Grilled Honey BBQ Chicken Wings Recipe

Fall is here, and with it comes football. A good game, great food, and a few drinks and it is a perfect night in for the guys.

These Grilled Honey BBQ Chicken Wings are so good your guests won’t be able to keep their hands of them till they are gone. This is a simple recipe but does take a little bit of time due to having to cook down the BBQ sauce; but it is well worth the effort. I cooked the recipe as written and love the way it is seasoned, but you can turn up the heat a little bit if you wish to do so, by increasing the amount of Tabasco sauce and black pepper. The end result is sticky and delicious chicken wings.

Whether it’s a guys night in to watch your favorite team play football, or a tail gating party, the food doesn’t get any better than this.
