It’s almost game time and I had a request for chicken wings.

While living out in Arizona, I kept messing around with a Southwest wing. I finally settled on a recipe that uses jalapeño hot sauce and adobo seasoning.  I use Tabasco green sauce and Goya adobo. You will find the adobo in the Latino or Mexican section of the market. I also cook them for  a good amount of time on a lower heat. The result is a well cooked crispy wing.

These will hold in the oven really well. Just hold off tossing with the sauce until you serve them.


 3 – 4 pounds chicken wing drumettes.
3 dashes liquid smoke.
1/2 cup green jalapeño Tabasco
Adobo seasoning – with pepper. Goya makes the best. Look in the Mexican or Latin Section of the store.

½ cup white wine
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon Adobo seasoning
1/2 cup green jalapeño Tabasco (more to taste)

Directions for the wings.

Works best on a gas grill, for charcoal, keep one side of the grill without coals.
You can also bake on a rack in a shallow pan at 250 for 2 1/2 hours turning frequently

In a large metal bowl, mix wings, hot sauce, liquid smoke and toss.
Sprinkle wings with seasoning and toss.
Repeat 4 times.
Let rest for at least 1/2 hour

Heat grill to high and brush down including the top rack.
Spray with oil and reduce heat to low.
Pour on wings in a single layer.
Cook 10 minutes with lid down
Turn the wings and cook another ten minutes.

Move wings to top rack or coolest part of grill and cook for 1 hour.
Turn every ten minutes until golden.
Toss with sauce.

Directions for the sauce:

Reduce the wine by ½ on the stove or microwave.
Mix with hot sauce, seasoning, and butter.
Heat until butter has melted.
Mix it together and toss with the wings.
