Grilling chicken wings

Hello, hope you're doing well and have enjoyed your chicken wings by trying out some of the methods that we discussed earlier. Now today we will talk about another method of cooking chicken wings which is grilling the wings.

Preparation:

At first preheat the oven to 190C. Now cut the wings in half with a knife in between the socket that holds the wing and leg together. Then place them into a baking dish and put it inside the oven.

You need to bake the chicken wings for about 30 to 40 minutes. The wings should turn pale white within this period. Now gently take them out of the oven. This initial part is called “pre-cooking” which is required before grilling the wings. Precooking the chicken wings will help you to reduce a considerable portion of fat from the wings so that you don’t have to worry too much about the flare-ups. In addition, pre-cooking the wings will also help you save energy as it will take less time to cook the wings. Once you're done with the pre-cooking part, its time to go for the next part, which is grilling.

Just before you finish baking the wings, preheat the grill to maximum. This way you will have the grill prepared ready for when you take the wings out of the oven. Then, when both the wings and the grill are prepared place the wings on the grill by using tongs. Turn the wings constantly with the tongs to avoid burning. Although most of the fats will be gone after you bake the wings for half an hour some will still remoain. So be careful about the flare ups that can be caused by the remaining fat.

After a while, the wings will turn golden brown and this is when you should start adding the sauce. Continue to turn the wings while you are mixing the sauce with them. Using barbecue sauce can sometimes cause some problems as it contains sugar which can burn the wings and turn them black. To avoid this from happening, you can try other non sugar containing sauces. This will help you to avoid burning the wings. People have different opinions about how long should the entire grilling process take. However, you should make up you own mind. So take the wings off the grill (after you are done with adding the sauce) when you think they are properly grilled.
