V8 and Wings

Recently a friend introduced me to a wonderful new recipe for wings. It uses spicy V* juice as one of the marinade ingredients and is quite good. Try them and see what you think.[p]Georgia Red Wings

I think you'll like this, it's definitely one of the best I've ever tasted. It's not over-poweringly spicy but quite flavorful.
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup Texas Pete hot sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup Hot and Spicy V8 juice
3-4 lbs chicken wings

1 Cut the wings apart at the joints discarding (or saving for stock) the tips.
2 Combine marinade ingredients in a large container with a lid. and place the wings in the container making sure they are all covered with marinade.
3 It is best to let the wings marinate in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 2-4 hours).
4 Remove the wings from the marinade and sprinkle with Big Green Egg Gourmet Seasoning (or your favorite rub for chicken).
5 Grill indirect at about 350 deg. for 15 to 30 minutes on each side. If grilling direct, monitor carefully and turn every 10 minutes. [p]Personally, I like them very crispy but some like them just browned.[p]This does enough wings to cover the grill of a large BGE with some sapce between the wings. You could probably double the recipe and get them all on, but you would be overlapping some.[p]

    Wise One,[p]I haven't seen Texas Pete hot sauce in Kansas City. After a quick google search, its seems similar to Louisiana Hot Sauce or a tamer version of red Tabasco sauce.[p]Am I close?

    a stick, absolutely. Texas Pete is (to me at least) a little milder hot sauce than some of the others. However, I think they will make excellent substitutes in this recipe.

    Wise One, the texas pete is milder than tobasco but is inexpensive and comes in large containers. good for dipping the buffulo wings in after cooking

  • a stick,
    Yeah it's cheap and great to have on hand for a mild sauce. If you have Crystal hot sauce in your area, it's very similar.
