Garlic Parm Chicken Wings

Found this recipe on the internet somewhere so I would try it. Barb always orders Garlic Parm Wings so I went out to try some. Well she ate more of these than any wings that I made prior.  I took my kettle and filled my mini chimney to put in the center. The temp in the dome was right on 300. Smoked for about an hour with peach wood. They were tasty.

For the rub:

  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (this won’t add flavor, but will help you achieve crispy skin on the wings)

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup grate Parmesan & Romano Cheese (in the green can)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • couple of turns of the pepper grinder
  • salt to taste


  1. Set up your grill for an indirect cook and pre-heat to 400F.
  2. Combine the ingredients for the rub.
  3. Dust the chicken wings liberally with the rub.
  4. Place the chicken on the grill (making sure not to be directly over flame or charcoal). Cook until crispy.
  5. While the chicken is cooking, melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. When the chicken is done, remove to a large heat proof bowl. Pour the sauce over the chicken and toss to coat.
