In this article I will teach you how to make cinnamon chipotle grilled buffalo wings. This is not a wing sauce recipe, it is a dry rub used on the wings before they are placed on the grill. I will also explain how to increase the heat of the flavor for this recipe.

I always start with fresh, uncut chicken wings. You can use pre-cut frozen pieces if you want to save some time, just make sure that all of the wings are fully defrosted before you begin. With fresh wings I open the package in the sink with cool water running and cut the wing tips off then separate the drum stick from the wing with poultry shears. I then rinse each piece and place into a large mixing bowl. You want to start with no more than about 20 wing pieces in the bowl, then, add about ½ - 1 ounce of McCormick's Grill Mates Sweet and Smoky Rub. Toss wings thoroughly in the mixing bowl and add more rub as needed to coat all the wing pieces well. Pour the coated wings into a separate bowl and repeat this process as many times as needed for the amount of wings you plan on grilling. Once you have some practice you should be able to toss more than 20 wings at a time, just make sure you have a large enough mixing bowl so the rub doesn't end up splashing out of the bowl all over the kitchen. Once you have all your wings coated it is time to fire up the grill. You do not want to let the wings sit after coating because the rub will start to turn watery and drip off the chicken.

Now that your grill is heated and ready start placing the wings over the cooking surface of the grill with a small space between each piece. I cook my wing on a medium low temperature setting on the grill. You will need to flip the wings often to avoid burning the rub. As the smaller wings finish cooking first move them to the top rack of your grill as you finish cooking the larger pieces. Chicken wings should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Once all the wings are cooked you are ready to serve them.

If you want to add some spice to the wings I recommend using cayenne pepper. I usually mix the cayenne pepper about 1 ounce for every 3 ounces of rub used. You can experiment with your own mixture for your taste though. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
