2 cups Red Hot hot sauce

2 cups brown sugar

2 tablespoons vinegar (Steve uses white vinegar with jalepeno peppers, onions, etc.)

Stick of butter


1/4 cup black pepper

1/4 cup garlic, minced

1/2 cup Italian seasoning

1/4 cup chili powder

1/4 cup paprika

1/4 cup dried rosemary

2 tablespoons of red pepper (more or less to taste)


  1. The above should be enough for 7 or 8 pounds of wings. Rinse and drain 7 to 8 pounds wings. Pour some of the Red Hot hot sauce over them, and toss. Add seasoning mixture (above) until generously coated. You will lose some in the cooking, so don't skimp! Place the wings on a gas grill (or smoker) and slow cook them at a low temperature. After 20 minutes baste/mist with sprayer at least every 10 minutes. Flip them after you mist them. Total cooking time should be around 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the heat of the grill. They're done when they break at the joint or you can break the wing tip off.
  2. Combine ingredients and warm on stove or in microwave, then put in spray bottle and set aside. .
