Grilling chicken wings Texas style could really be any easier than this. All you need is a spicy rub and a healthy portion of wings. You don't necessarily think of chicken as a fatty bird but if there is a significant fat content then it's in the wings.....and that's why they taste so good.
The spice mix of Texas grilled chicken wings really helps offset any fatty flavors so it truly is a match made in heaven and all you have to do is apply the rub, get your grill up to temperature and then 15 minutes later you've got a great appetizer.
Note: When grilling wings this is the only time that I recommend sprinkling the rub on the skin rather than the chicken meat itself. It's not practical to do otherwise and the wing is so small that whenever you take a bite you're going to get the taste of that crispy skin and therefore the heat from the rub too.
Only one thing to take care of when grilling chicken wings and that's to make sure that they don't fall off the cooking grate into the fire. If like me you're all fingers and thumbs with the tongs then do like I do and use a bbq fish mat (no, they're not just for fish).
After that there really isn't much to say other than mix up your rub and apply it to the wings. To some extent the rub will blacken and this is OK because it's important that the spice mix cooks. Just turn regularly until the skin is golden brown.
Grill over medium hot coal for about 15 - 20 minutes, plate up and enjoy!
I like to serve mine with a cool salad, iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes and cucumber but sometimes I just can't resist putting on that extra lug of chili sauce.
