Calgary Hot Wings
The wings get marinated for 12-24 hours in a wheat beer or Hefe-Weizen.
This was an imported German Hefe-Weizen which had great flavor as a beer & a marinade
The rub used celery seed, sweet paprika, chili powder, Kosher salt & black pepper
The rub ingredients are ready to mix
The finished rub
The hot sauce consisted of unsalted butter, Tabasco sauce & Sriracha (a S.E. Asian spicy ketchup like sauce)
The sauce was heated on the stove & then kept warm
I am soaking some apple wood chips to use in the grill’s smoker drawer
The wings are out of the marinade & have been dried. They were placed in a big bowl & tossed with the rub
The wings cook indirectly with medium-high heat. It is hard to see, but I dropped my grills cast iron pan under the grate
The wings cooked for about 45 minutes.
I took the wings off the grill & placed them right in a s/s bowl & tossed them in the hot sauce
The wings have been tossed in hot sauce & sprinkled w/ paprika. They’re served w/ fries & Caramelized Onion & Herb Rolls
Doing these wings was a great excuse to pick up a 6 pack of one of my favorite German wheat beers.
The Calgary Hot Wings, Yukon gold fries, Caramelized Onion & Herb Rolls & a Hefe-Weizen: a match made in heaven
The Paulaner German Hefe-Weizen lent a wonderful wheaty-yeasty flavor to the wings & went great with the meal
These wings were quite hot & spicy & I’d put them in the top 3 wings I’ve made

This recipe from Steven Raichlen made some of the best chicken wings I’ve ever done. The wings are marinated for 24 hours in heffe weizen of wheat beer, one of my favorite beers. Then they are rubbed with an herb rub before going out to the grill. The wings are cooked indirectly for about 45 minutes. When the wings come off the grill they are tossed in a rather hot sauce and then they are garnished with chopped Italian parsley and served. After the first blast of the spicy sauce has passed the next thing I noticed, quite to my surprise, was a wheaty/yeasty flavor from the wheat bear marinade. I absolutely loved this flavor surprise and these wings are right up there with the top 3 wings I have made
