  • 3 pounds chicken wings, split into wings and drumettes
  • ½ cup salt
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sweet paprika
  • 2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp. mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • ½ tbsp. cayenne pepper


  1. Prepare the chicken wings by splitting into wings and drumettes, cutting the tips from the wings.
  2. To make the brine, in a large pan, combine the salt, brown sugar, white vinegar, pepper and garlic, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and stir until the salt and sugar dissolve. Let cool to room temperature, then pour over the chicken wings, marinating for 2-3 hours.
  3. To make the dry rub, in a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Drain the brined wings, then in a large bowl, toss them with the dry rub.
  4. Grill the wings over medium-high heat until they are cooked through and crispy, about 15 to 25 minutes, turning throughout.
  5. Pop ‘em off the grill and serve.
