After trying out the brine in this recipe, you’ll never skip soaking your wings again. We also loved the new approach it took with the sauce: mayonnaise. You’ll find it adds a creamy and flavorful texture to your regular wing sauce.

  • 1 gallon water
  • 1/2 Cup salt

Barbecue Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
