Smoked Chili Wings

Tired of the same old wings?  This recipe was created by Foodietales, which is an awesome food blog that you should subscribe to right away!  These wings have a ton of flavor and are the perfect balance of sweet, savory and spicy.  We made these wings in the oven but you can make them on the grill of you prefer.  Enjoy!


  • (12) air-chilled wings

Ingredients - Marinade

  • 1 tablespoon Hella Smoked Chili Bitters
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus 1/4 teaspoon more to toss on wings before serving
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl. Separate in half into two separate bowls. Reserve one bowl of marinade to sauce the wings after they have been cooked. Use the other half to marinade the wings for at least 30-minutes or up to 12-hours in the fridge
  2. Before cooking, preheat the oven to 450-degrees
  3. Place wings into a baking dish. You can line the dish with foil to make cleanup easier, if you prefer
  4. Roast for 35-40 minutes until dark golden brown
  5. When they are cooked, return the wings to a clean bowl, add reserved marinade, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and toss until well coated
  6. If you prefer to grill the wings, make sure the grill is hot before putting the wings onto the grill. Turn them occasionally to make sure the wings do not burn. They should take 25-minutes on the grill
