Chieftain's Day

It’s Father's Day this weekend and now that it’s June it definitely won’t be raining, right?  We’re staying positive that the sun will be shining so we’ve put together a few of our favourite (and most manly) BBQ recipes to make sure the chieftain of your clan gets his whisky fix on his special day.  

 

Whisky Wings

Wings

 

We've followed the great advice from Jim's Mixed Grill to help you create the perfect wings.  

 

Ingredients

15 Wings, split with the tips removed

1 Bottle Scotch Whisky Syrup

1 Tbsp Hot Sauce (any kind)

Pinch of Salt Pepper

 

Method

1. Preheat your grill to medium-high, but have a "cool zone" on one side of the grill. (If you're using charcoal, distribute the coals on one half of the grill.  Wait until the coals cool down so you can hold your hand a few inches over the grates for a count of 4-5 Mississippi).

2. Season the wings with salt and pepper to help build the layers of flavour.

3. Toss the wings on the hot side of the grill and spread them out.  No Touching!

4. Wait about 4 minutes and start checking the wings to see how quickly they're browning.  Some will brown after just 4 minutes, some will take longer.  Once they get golden brown with a bit of char, turn them over.  You will want to move the location of the ones you move first, since they are over a hot spot.  If there are wings that are browning too quickly, move them into the cool zone.

5. Grill the wings for 15-18 minutes total.  Throughout this entire time, you will constantly be checking, turning, and the moving the wings to keep them from burning.

6. Mix the Whisky Syrup, Hot Sauce and Salt in a large bowl. This will make a hot, sweet, sticky glaze.

7. Remove the wings from grill and place them in the bowl and toss to combine.

8. Dump the wings back on the grill for 1-4 minutes, depending on the sauce.  BE CAREFUL!  Those perfectly browned wings can turn black in seconds because of the sweet, sugary glaze.

9. Remove from the grill and leave to cool for a few minutes.
