This tasty BBQ dry-rubbed chicken wings recipe calls for three pounds of chicken wings per dozen people, but easily adjusts to the number of fans you’re entertaining.
Be sure to rinse and pat dry the wings with a paper towel to remove excess moisture that could prevent them from getting crispy. It’ll also keep the dry rub from getting too gooey.
Next, grab a sharp knife and cut each wing at its joint to remove tip. Discard the tip—that’ll make all the wings just the right size for easy handling.
Want to ramp up the heat a bit? Add a touch of cayenne pepper to your rub. If you’ve got a crowd and made a large amount of wings, use a slow cooker to keep them warm.
