  • Preheat grill using two zone method or direct/indirect. Target 400 degrees Fahrenheit as internal cooker temperature. For this method, place the lump charcoal in a pile in the center of the grill.
  • Place dry wings in a one gallon plastic sealable bag. Then add the dry rub and corn starch. Seal the bag and shake it to season. Remove wings and place on a cookie sheet.
  • Place the wings on the grill in a circle surrounding the heat source. Place cover back on grill and grill for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, flip the wings and cover again.
  • After 10 more minutes flip again, and grill for another 10 minutes. The wings should be crispy on all sides and read at least 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove and then place in the sauce.

Wing BBQ Sauce

  • In a small sauce pan over medium heat add the KC sauce, butter, and honey. Stir to combine until the butter is melted.
  • Place sauce in a large mixing bowl. Place wings directly from the grill into the sauce and stir to incorporate.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and sides, like carrots and celery.
