Chicken Wing Dry Rub: Makes about 3/4 cups

2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons Sugar In the Raw
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons good quality chili powder
2 teaspoons black pepper finely ground
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

With a sharp knife, cut the tips off the chicken wings and save them for stock. Slash the inside of the wing joint to help them cook more evenly, but don’t cut them all the way through. Sprinkle liberally with the Chicken Wing Dry Rub then let rest for 20 minutes up to four hours.

Prepare the grill to cook at 375 indirect. Grill the wings for about 45 minutes, do not turn.

If you're using a regular grill over direct heat, I'd say 20-30 minutes flipping at regular intervals until they're nice and crispy would do the trick, just be careful not to burn the rub.

This rub makes the wings very dark, almost black, but the flavor is incredible. I use a tube smoker when cooking these also, love to get as much smoke on them as possible. I also overcook them slightly which gives fall off the bone tenderness and ultra-crispy skin, I usually don't pull them until they're right around 200 internal.

Upstate NY has the best wings, especially Duffs in Buffalo.

I thought Anchor Bar wings were okay.

These sure do sound good. I think I might be the only man in history who loves the wing tips though. Crispy fatty skin goodness.

I LOVE hot wings. Period.

That being said, I've totally bastardized the hot wings thing. So, with apologies in advance... I use chicken thighs instead of wings. Yes, by doing so, I'm sure I've offended every hot wing aficionado on HBT; perhaps on Earth. I wish my Costco sold fresh wings; but, alas, they do not. Yet.

Moreover, I use Alton Brown's method of cooking wings. This process includes steaming the, um, er... "wings" for 10-15 minutes, letting them rest, and, finally, baking them at something like 400* for 20 minutes per side. I start with the skin side down. While resting, I will marinate them in Frank's.

Once cooked, I add as much garlic butter as my heart will tolerate to a stainless steel bowl and toss in the cooked thighs. Once coated, I add as much Frank's as the GF will tolerate. Then I'll add a little more. Then, when she's not looking, I'll add a few dashes of Tobasco. Finally, I'll add just a bit of Yoshida's sauce for a little sweetness.

Yum.
