The Sweet, Hot Boatright

I received a special care package from my buddy Darian at Kosmos Q on the Saturday before the super bowl.  I already had some chicken wings in the refer for the big game, so I decided to crack open the chicken soak and give it a whirl.  Early Sunday afternoon, I mixed it up just like it says on the package (No heat required!), cut up my wings, and plopped them in the briny goodness for a two hour soak while I enjoyed a pregame cocktail.

After the soak, I rinsed them off really good and patted them dry with a paper towel.  I tossed them in my usual go to rub, Smokin’ Guns Hot, and added a healthy dose of Big Poppa Smokers Cuckoo Racha spicy chili dust to up the heat and flavor.  I went outside, put them on the middle rack of my Gateway Drum running at 300-325 degrees, grabbed another cocktail and contemplated sauce.

I’ve got my go to wing sauce, but I was looking for something a little bit different.  Fortunately, fellow can cooker Kent Boatright, the pitmaster of Uncle BCs competition BBQ team, had recently sent me a killer wing sauce recipe.  It is a sweet, hot mixture of butter, honey, and siracha; with those ingredients, how can you go wrong?

I mixed up the following ingredients in a large bowl and set them aside:

  • 5 Tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup sriracha hot sauce
  • Juice of one lime

After 30 minutes of cooking, I gave my wings a flip, slapped the lid back on and left them alone.  After another 30 minutes had passed, I popped the lid back off for a look.  My wings had a nice golden brown color and were bubbling just a bit under the skin.  Perfect.   I transferred them from the grate to my waiting bowl of sauce and gave them a nice toss.

They were fantastic.  The soak, the sauce, and the drum all came together to make one of the best wings I have ever tasted!  They were the hit of my Super Bowl spread.  Give them a shot.  It is too easy not to!
