Kongo Kickin' Chicken Wings
- Ziploc bag
- 1 bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing
- ½ cup of Soy Sauce
- 5lbs of chicken wings
- Grilla Grill's All Purpose Rub
- 1 bottle of Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
- ¼ cup of Grilla Grill's Kongo Kick Sauce
- 1/3 cup of blue cheese crumbles
- 1-2 tablespoons of Grilla Grill's All Purpose Rub
To begin, pour an entire bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing into a Ziploc bag, followed by a ½ cup of Soy Sauce. You’ll want to make sure to get all of the zest from the dressing to really enhance the flavor. Mix the bag around until the two are well combined and it makes a nice golden brown color.
Place your chicken wings into the marinade and let them sit for a minimum of 2 hours, ideally allowing them to marinade for 6-8 hours will give you the best flavor. Next, place a rack over your cooking tray and place the wings onto the rack and blot off the excess marinade. Once your wings are dry, generously season with Grilla Grill’s All Purpose Rub.
Heat your Kong to 275 degrees Fahrenheit to do an indirect cook of these wings. Place your wings seasoned side down and apply a layer of the All Purpose rub to the other side of the wing. Close the lid and check back in another 20 minutes to flip the wings. You’re looking for an internal temperature of about 185 degrees.
Next, go ahead and slather on Grilla Grill’s Kong Kick sauce and give them another 15 minutes. After that, give them another flip and coat the other side with a layer of sauce and continue cooking for 15 minutes until they have a nice char. Now, you’re ready to remove from the grill and place them back in your pan for serving.
