Ingredients

1/2 cup chili powder

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/3 cup cider vinegar

3 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for grill

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 pounds chicken wings (12 whole wings)

Directions

  1. 1. Whisk the chili, sugar, cayenne, vinegar, 3 tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl to make a thick paste. Put half the paste in a large re-sealable plastic bag.
  2. 2. Remove the wing tips and discard. Pat the wings dry. Add the wings to the bag and seal. Toss the wings in a bag to evenly coat with the mixture. Marinate at room temperature 30 minutes or refrigerate up to 2 hours.
  3. 3. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat. Lightly brush the grill grate with oil. Evenly arrange the wings on the grill, cook until crisp and just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Brush the wings with the reserved rub and continue to grill until glazed, about 2 minutes more. Transfer the wings to a platter. Serve.
