Bbq wings

by Lorena

These bbq wings are a classic and the best part is that everyone likes them. You can make them and know that several people will go crazy over them. The bbq sauce I used is the same homemade bbq sauce we made a couple of weeks ago and I seriously think that it’s much yummier than the store-bought ones.

Is there any other kind of bbq sauce that you like? I love honey bbq, spicy, Asian, all of them. Let me know in the comments of this post if you would like me to teach you how to make any of these and which :). Whatever the flavour, these wings are really yummy and extra sticky. Dirty fingers are a good indicator of good wings.

As I said on my bbq sauce post, you want to use nice ketchup as a base for it. You can use this bbq sauce recipe for anything you like, as these wings for example. I know that you also want me to teach you how to make bbq ribs. So in a few week’s time, after Christmas, I’ll be teaching you how to make them with a video and everything :). This bbq wings recipe is really simple so it wasn’t really worth it to post it with a video.

For the bbq sauce

  • 250 g ketchup
  • 60 ml apple cider vinegar
  • 15 g brown sugar
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • salt to taste
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper optional

For the bbq wings

  • 1 kg chicken wings skin on or off, your choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


For the bbq sauce

  • Place everything in a pot and let it boil for about 15min or until it thickens and turns deeper in colour. You can keep it for up to a week in the fridge or for up to 3 months in the freezer.

For the bbq wings

  • If your wings are frozen, let them thaw completely and place them on a colander so the excess water drops into a bowl. This makes for yummier, more golden wings.
  • If you're not removing the skin from the wings, I do recommend that you still remove floppy pieces of skin with no meat underneath because they don't bake too well. Alternatively, you can remove the skin altogether,
  • Season the wings with salt and pepper to taste. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and cook for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 250°C / 480°F.
  • Remove the wings from the oven, flip them around and return them to the oven at the same temperature for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove the wings from the tray and also get rid of any excess liquid that might have fallen onto the tray.
  • Mix the wings with the bbq sauce and place them back onto the baking tray with baking paper once again. You'll notice that there will be some extra bbq sauce in the bowl where you mixed the wings with the bbq sauce. Brush that excess bbq sauce onto the wings (more bbq is better than less bbq).
  • Return the wings to the oven for the last 10 minutes and serve them hot. I garnished them with sesame seeds and chopped chives.
