  • Testing various wood pellet flavors: Grilla Grills offers a variety of competition-grade hardwood smoke pellets such as cherry, apple, hickory, mesquite, pecan and competition blend OHC (oak, hickory and cherry). Each wood pellet elicits new undertones in foods, especially in meals smoked over an hour like these grilled hot wings. You can rest assured any of these flavors are sure to keep the whole family coming back for more.
  • Trying out different seasonings: Your dry rub options are endless when it comes to perfecting a hot wings recipe. If you’re into trying something completely different, you can’t go wrong with a lemon pepper marinade. Experiment with lemon zest, olive oil, salt, white wine vinegar and cracked pepper.
  • Testing other sauces: We’re not going to lie. Our hot sauce, zesty Italian dressing, Worcestershire sauce and teriyaki marinade make a killer combination on hot wings. If you’re feeling adventurous, try saucing and crusting your wings in different ways. Sriracha with butter, lime zest and cilantro makes a superb stash of savory grilled wings.
