  • 30 Chicken Wings flats and drums
  • 1/3 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 TBSP Granulated Garlic Powder
  • 1 TBSP Granulated Onion Powder
  • 1 TSP Cumin
  • 1 TSP Ground Mustard
  • 1 TSP Hungarian Paprika
  • 1 TSP Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 TSP Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1/4 TSP Cayenne Powder


  • Preheat your gas grill with all burners on HIGH. Make sure that it is clean and at about 500 degrees before grilling.
  • In bowl large enough to fit all the wings, add in the olive oil and all the spices. Mix well to combine.
  • Add in the wings and mix with a rubber spatula to coat the wings.
  • If you are running a 4 burner grill, turn the 2 burners on the right to low. Add all the wings over those 2 burners. Cook for 10 minutes, watching for flare-ups.
  • After 10 minutes, use tongs and flip the wings to the other side of the grill. After the wings have been moved, turn the left burners to low and the right burners to high. Cook for another 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove the wings from the grill and serve hot. Enjoy!


To prevent flare-ups for this or any recipe: in a squeeze bottle, add about ¼ cup Baking Soda. Add in about 1 cup water and shake. When flare-ups occur, carefully squeeze just a bit of the Baking Soda Water mixture onto the flare up. It will extinguish immediately and not flare-up again.
Cooking times will vary based on the BTU’s of your grill. I am running a high powered grill that runs from natural gas for this recipe. Make sure that your wings are cooked through before eating.
