With Thai Aioli

If grilling conditions are less than, well, super, on Super Bowl Sunday, these wings can be prepared on a contact grill or indoor built-in grill. They will take 4 to 6 minutes on the contact grill, provided the lid is down, and about 6 to 8 minutes per side on a built-in grill.

Method: Indirect grilling
Serves: 3 to 4 as an appetizer (makes 12)
  • 12 whole chicken wings (about 2 pounds)
For the marinade:
  • 2 cups dark beer
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves and stems, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons peeled, minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
For the rub:
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt (kosher or sea)
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
To finish:
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sriracha (Thai hot sauce; see Note)
  • 1 1/2 cups Thai Aioli (recipe follows)
You’ll also need:
  • 1 1/2 cups wood chips or chunks (preferably hickory or oak), soaked for 1 hour in water to cover, then drained
1. Rinse the chicken wings under cold running water and blot dry with paper towels. Cut the tips off the wings and discard them (or leave the tips on if you don’t mind munching a morsel that’s mostly skin and bones). Cut each wing into 2 pieces through the joint.

2. Make the marinade: In a medium bowl, combine the beer, honey, cilantro, ginger, and garlic, and whisk to mix. Place the wings in a large nonreactive bowl or resealable plastic bag, and add the marinade. Let the wings marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours; the longer they marinate, the more pronounced the flavors will be.

3. Make the rub: Place the salt, pepper, garlic, salt, ginger, coriander, and cumin in a small bowl and whisk to mix.

4. Drain the wings in a colander and blot them dry with paper towels; discard the marinade. Place the wings in a mixing bowl. Toss with the olive oil to coat. Add the rub and toss to coat the wings evenly.

5. Set up the grill for indirect grilling and preheat to medium. If using a gas grill, place all the wood chips or chunks in the smoker box or in a smoker pouch and run the grill on high until you see smoke; then reduce the heat to medium. If using a charcoal grill, place a large drip pan in the center, preheat the grill to medium, then toss all of the wood chips or chunks on the coals.

6. When ready to cook, brush and oil the grate. Place the wings in the center of the hot grate, over the drip pan and away from the heat, and cover the grill. Cook the wings, turning periodically, until the skin is golden brown and crisp, and the meat is cooked through, 30 to 40 minutes. To test for done-ness, make a tiny cut in the thickest part of one of the larger wing halves. There should be no trace of red at the bone.

6. Transfer the wings to a clean shallow serving bowl. Pour the butter and sriracha over them and stir to mix. Serve at once with Thai Aioli and plenty of cold beer.

Thai Aioli
Makes: 1 1/2 cups
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (preferably Hellmann’s)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha (Thai hot sauce; see Note), or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts finely minced
Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, sriracha, cilantro, and scallions, and whisk to mix. Cover and refrigerate.

Note: Sriracha is a sweet Thai hot sauce—think turbocharged ketchup, rather than tongue-blistering hot sauce. It’s named for a city on Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard and is available at most Asian markets, or through ImportFood.com.

Hey Whitetrash, good looking recipe for wings, but you might want to try this. My recipe for wings is killer.

B.D.'s Grilled Hot Wings

You can do up to 50 wings with this recipe

Take a bag of thawed wings (or fresh) rinse (don't pat dry) and place in a 1 Gallon Freezer Zip Lock bag. (You may want to make several bags for easy handling)

Pour in 1 to 2 bottles of Paul Newman's Own Olive oil & Vinegar.
Add 1 to 2 heaping Tbs. of chopped "Old El Paso" green chilies. Mix well.
Remove as much air as possible and seal.

Marinade for 2 hrs.
Turn every so often.

For the sauce melt ½ to 1 whole stick of unsalted butter in a glass sauce pan.

Pour into sauce pan:
1/4 to 3/4 bottle of Louisiana Habanero sauce (the more the hotter)
2 to 4 Tbs. of Thai Garlic Chili Pepper Sauce (see note)
2 to 4 Tbs. of Cajun Sunshine Hot sauce
2 to 4 Tbs. of Cholula Hot Sauce
Mix well.

Just heat enough to melt the butter and simmer the hot sauces. (No boiling)

Remove wings from marinade, (discard) and grill on med. heat for 45 min’s.
Turning wings every ten min’s. Remove from grill.

Place wings in a large bowl and pour warm sauce over wings, tossing to coat.

Remove wings to a plate and enjoy.

Note: You can find this where the Soy Sauce and Asian foods are in the store.

I have recently started using whole wing sections and just removing the wing tip. This makes them easier to flip on the grill and still makes for some fine eatin’.
