Bourbon Peach Grilled BBQ Wings are full of tangy and sweet flavor, with just a hint of heat. Using my favorite bourbon peach BBQ sauce recipe, these wings are sticky and delicious. Serves 4 to 6.

Who doesn’t love a big ol’ pile of sweet and sticky grilled BBQ wings this time of year?

You all know I have a soft spot in my heart for wings. They are one of those appetizers I will always order, I am always looking for new ways to make them more delicious, and they are the top recipes on my blog most of the year.

So, let’s chat about this whole new take on the wings that I am vibing with right now. Crispy grilled wings with a sticky sauce is probably one of the best ways to gobble down wings, am I right?

That’s just what these wings are. You start with a dry rub that’s simple, using ingredients you already likely have in your spice rack, that has a lovely hint of heat to it. 

The wings are also tossed in a sweet and tangy peach bourbon BBQ sauce that’s absolutely divine… They are easy to make and seriously addictive!

this recipe’s must-haves

For this recipe, you’ll just need a set of metal mixing bowls to make the rub and also to coat the wings evenly with said rub. 

Other than that, you just need a silicone brush, a grill (like the Traeger grill that we LOVE), and a pair of tongs. 

It’s the simplest of recipes!

let’s make delish bourbon peach grilled bbq wings! 

Make Rub

To make the rub, simply mix together all the spices in a small bowl until well combined. Add the rub to a bowl with the wings and toss to coat evenly.

Grill

Heat grill to 400˚F and add wings. Grill until the skin is crispy and they are cooked through, flipping them every 10 to 15 minutes. This will take about 30 to 40 minutes total. In the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking, brush the wings on all sides with the sauce. 

Cook until they register 165˚F internally on a meat thermometer.

Toss

Remove wings from the grill to a large bowl and add the remaining sauce. Toss to coat and place on serving platter. Top with sliced green onions and serve.

how long does it take to grill wings?

The total time to grill wings is about 30 to 40 minutes. You will want to flip them every 10 to 15 minutes until they are cooked through. 

I like to use a meat thermometer to ensure they are cooked through before removing them. They should be 165˚F internally.

should I buy the wings whole or broken down into drumettes/flats?

I recommend buying the wings whole! They are much less expensive this way and you can easily break them down yourself at home in about 10 minutes. Click here for a quick 30 second video on how to break them down!
