Other than surfing, motocross, music, and gaming, my other biggest passion is cooking. I thought since we have a food and drink section, may as well post some recipes. Made these last night so thought it would be a good place to start. This is not my own recipe. I've even included pictures (the whiskey told me that would be a good idea...)

Sriracha Hot Wings

4 pounds chicken wings
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt

For the sauce:
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sriracha
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon rice vinegar

(I usually do a half batch for my wife and myself)

For those of you who don't know what Sriracha is, I am really sorry. It is the godsend of condiments (others simply call it a Japenese chili sauce). I was introduced to this in Hawaii, and have been putting it on nearly everything I eat since.


Pat the wings dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with baking powder and salt, tossing to coat evenly. Place wings on wire rack placed over a baking sheet and refrigerate uncovered at least 8 hours.


Set up your grill for indirect cooking (flame on one side, meat on the other). Place chicken wings skin side up over cool side of grill, cover, and cook until skins are crisp and browned, about 30 to 40 minutes. If using a gas grill, keep the temp around 375 degrees F.

My 3 burner gas grill, outside burners on, middle burner off.

Brush wings all over with sauce, cover, and cook another 5 to 10 minutes. (see below for sauce)


When the wings first go on the grill, melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Whisk in sriracha, honey, soy sauce, cilantro, lime juice, and vinegar until combined. Remove from heat and set aside.


When wings are done transfer to large bowl, pour remaining sauce over wings and toss until evenly coated. Now eat! :cheers:


These are seriously some of the best hot wings I've had. My wife, who doesn't really like wings, devours these!

Great recipe. I'm definitely going to adopt the dusting method for my wings. I'm guessing that helps get a nice crispy wing?

Tonight I did a whole chicken "Butterflied" on my weber kettle grill. This was a first for me and it turned out great. I made a marinade with soya sauce, fresh ginger, garlic, brown sugar, fresh ground pepper, juice of two lines, some ketchup and canola oil. The chicken sat on the marinade for approx 5 hours. Set up the grill for indirect cooking. One full chimney of coals placed half and half on each side of the grill. Drip pan in the middle. Soaked some apple wood chips. Chicken went in the center over the drip pan. Sprinkled the wood chips onto the hot coals and closed the lid. Left the chicken for 30 minutes then opened lid and flipped the chicken to the boney side. 15 more minutes and chicken was perfectly cooked. Let the chicken sit for 10 minutes before serving.
