Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 2 1/2 Pounds chicken wingettes and drumettes
  • 2 Cups honey barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

Place the jerk seasoning in a large resealable plastic bag and add the chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. In a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, mustard, and ginger and set aside.

Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and, using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill the chicken wings, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 12-16 minutes, turning occasionally.

Brush with the sauce mixture. Grill or broil 8-10 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill 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.
