Cola Chicken Wings

I love Chicken Wings cooked on the BBQ. These Cola Chicken Wings were cooked using the BBQ Vortex and worked really well.

  • Light your coals and prepare your BBQ, setting up to cook with the BBQ Vortex. If you don’t have the vortex I would just set up the BBQ with 2 zones and cook the chicken wings for around 25 minutes on the indirect area.
  • Cook for 40 minutes using the vortex, rotating the lid every 15 minutes. This will ensure you get a consistent cook over all your Chicken Wings.
  • Add a cast-iron pan above the vortex and get it nice and hot (I actually used the side burner on my gas BBQ for this stage) Then add the Chicken Wings to the pan and cook for 2 minutes, moving the wings occasionally to ensure they don’t stick or burn.
  • Next add the BBQ sauce, ensuring the Chicken Wings are well covered. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You will find the sauce starts to caramelise.
