  • 4 cups habanero hot sauce, such as Melissa’s
  • 3 -5 ounces sweet Thai chile sauce
  • 1/4 cup Tabasco
  • Canola oil (or other cooking oil), for frying
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Flour, for coating the chicken
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 10 medium-sized chicken wings
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 leaf Bibb lettuce, for serving
  • Blue cheese dressing, for serving
  • Carrots, celery, and jicama, cut into sticks, for serving


Combine the first 3 ingredients in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Once the mixture begins to bubble, reduce heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer until it has reduced by 1/3, about 15 minutes.

In a large pot, heat about 1-inch canola oil over high heat to 375 degrees. Meanwhile, place the eggs, flour, and breadcrumbs separately in 3 shallow dishes. Season the wings with salt and pepper, to taste.

Dip the wings one by one into the egg mixture, then the flour, and roll in the breadcrumbs to coat. Fry the wings in the hot oil. Remove the wings once they have floated to the top and are a golden brown color.

In a large mixing bowl, toss the wings, sauce, and butter until the wings are coated well. Serve on a Bibb lettuce leaf with blue cheese dressing, carrots, celery, and jicama sticks.

The Meatwave

Me and my immune system are engaged in an epic battle. For most of the month of July and into August I was in a continual attack against a sinus infection that just didn't want to give up, with spicy jerk skewers being some of the only relief I could find. Finally I gained the upper hand, but that 'itis just didn't want to quit. Now I find myself relapsed in a stuffy nose, coughing, and achy hell. While I've rebounded from last week, when I couldn't even muster the energy to write, I'm still suffering and am once again looking to food for relief. An extra hot tom yum soup last night was great, but with my appetite coming back, I need something meatier that also delivers just as much mouth burning heat, and these habanero barbecue wings fit that bill nicely.

I really like hot barbecue sauces, where a nice sweetness quickly gives into a complex heat. There isn't much out there that can beat the habanero in concocting one of these at home. That little pepper packs a hefty punch, while still retaining a fruitiness that makes it great for building a sauce around.

For this sauce, I gave the habanero and garlic some blackening in a hot cast iron skillet, then combined them with onion, green bell pepper, tomato sauce, vinegar, honey, molasses, Worcestershire, brown sugar, and mustard. That was cooked for 30 minutes to let all the flavors combine and the sauce to thicken, then pureed in the blender to create a sweet, tangy, and spicy sauce that easily cleared out the sinuses.

With the sauce done, it was time to turn to the chicken. I wasn't leaving anything to chance in terms of heat, so I gave the wings a rub down with a spice mixture that had a fair amount of cayenne and let them rest in the fridge overnight.

At the grill I employed the two-zone method of cooking that has been churning out excellent wings every time for me. First the chicken wings were smoked over the cool side of the grill, with the lid closed, until the skin darkened and crisped.

Then the sauce was brushed on the wings and let cook until it baked in. Another coat of sauce was applied and the wings were moved to the hot side of the grill for a little charring and caramelization.

The layers of sauce gave these wings a killer flavor. Some extra sweetness came out of the sauce when cooked, but the heat of the habanero was still the main star here. Tearing through a batch of these sticky, charred beauties can provide a good form of temporary sinus relief, but being in my fourth month of this on again, off again infection, I'm feeling that no amount of chicken wings can fully comfort me, but I can sure as hell keep trying.

Habanero Barbecue Wings

  • Yield 4-6 servings
  • Prep 40 Minutes
  • Cook 40 Minutes
  • Total 1 Hour 20 Minutes


  • For the sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 habanero chiles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • For the rub
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 lbs of chicken wings, cut into drumettes and flats
  • 1 or 2 chunks of light smoking wood, such as apple or cherry


  1. To make the sauce: Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Place garlic cloves and habaneros in the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until they are blackened in spots, about 10 minutes. Remove from skillet and let cool. Peel and roughly chop garlic. Seed and roughly chop habaneros.
  2. Heat olive oil In a medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned. Add garlic, habaneros, and green bell pepper and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, vinegar, honey, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, and mustard and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, about 20 to 30 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Pour sauce into the jar of a blender and puree until almost smooth. Pour sauce into a jar and store in refrigerator until ready to use, up to two weeks.
  3. To make the wings: Combine paprika, granulated garlic, salt, black pepper and cayenne in a small bowl to make the rub. Place chicken wings in a large Ziploc bag and sprinkle in the rub. Seal bag and toss wings to evenly coat with the rub. Store in refrigerator up to one day (optional).
  4. Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and arrange the coals on one side of the charcoal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover gill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate. Add the wood chunk(s) on top of the grill, and once burning and producing smoke, place wings on the cool side of the grill, cover, and cook over medium-high heat until skin is browned and crisp, about 30 minutes. Brush wings all over with sauce, cover, and let cook until sauce caramelizes, about 5 minutes. Brush with sauce again and move wings to the hot side of the grill. Cook until slightly charred, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove wings to a platter and serve immediately.

Chris Everyone on the BBQ Brethren forum has been making habanero death dust wings that have been looking great but I haven't gotten around to ordering the death dust. Now I don't have to, I've got your recipe to go from scratch. Thanks for posting, I'm saving this recipe to try. Posted Tue, Oct 11 2011 12:26PM

Meat Trade Very nice article and very informative post. I grow my own Habaneros, and can see why this recipe might be a little on the spicy side for most. But I love the sweet, fruity taste that a habanero brings to a dish. Thanks for the recipe which you mentioned in your post. Posted Sun, Feb 19 2012 12:39AM

That Guy Do you remove the seeds from the Habaneros or leave them in? Cool post. Thanks. Posted Fri, Jan 11 2013 5:08PM

Josh @That Guy I did remove the seeds for this, but if you like your sauce hotter, feel free to leave them in. Posted Sat, Jan 12 2013 8:48AM

That Guy Thanks for the reply. How much more heat will the seeds add? Does it mess up the flavor? I'm trying to get hot, but without the bitterness. Posted Sat, Jan 12 2013 8:53AM

That Guy More specifically, where I live there is very little spicy food. When you do find a spicy offering, it usually has a very bitter, chemical taste to it. So, I'm trying to come up with some spice, but without that chemical spicey flavor. I guess I'll make 2 batches, seeds in and seeds out. Posted Sat, Jan 12 2013 12:56PM

How to Make Sticky Habanero Glazed Chicken Wings &ndash the Recipe Method

First, season your dried chicken wings with your rub mixture. In this case, I used a mix of baking powder (this helps with the crispiness by drawing out moisture), garlic powder, cayenne, mustard powder, basil, celery salt, and salt and pepper. You can easily use your own preferred blend.

Once they&rsquore seasoned, bake them for 30 minutes at 250 degrees F., then flip them and bake them another 30 minutes at 425 degrees F. This will get them nice and crispy. If you feel you&rsquod like them crispier, hit them with the broiler a couple minutes. Yeah!

For your glaze, heat up your pepper jam, agave nectar or honey, butter and minced habanero peppers with a dash of salt. You don&rsquot want to boil it, just incorporate it until you have a thin glaze.

Toss your cooked wings with the glaze and serve them up. These are SO GOOD! My stomach literally just growled as I was writing this. I guess I didn&rsquot make enough wings for myself! Dang! Easy enough to remedy. Guess I&rsquom off to make another batch.

Enjoy, my friends! Let me know how these turn out for you. Send pics! I love that. Take care &ndashMike H.

How To Make Chicken Wings Crispy

Basically, you want to cook the wings at a low temperature so that the fat starts to render but the wings don&rsquot get crispy and brown. I did this by frying at below 250F for about 15 minutes in my Lodge dutch oven or sometimes in a deep fryer.

I then let the wings set at room temperature for about 45 &ndash 60 minutes before frying at a higher temperature to get them really crispy. You can also store the chicken wings in the refrigerator after the first fry, which you definitely want to do if you&rsquore going to need longer than 1 hour before frying again.

Sometimes when I&rsquom trying to get ahead I will even do the first fry the day before serving.

Make sure you use an oil that has a high smoke point like canola, vegetable, or peanut oil. You definitely don&rsquot want to use something like olive oil.

When fried this way, the wings stay really crispy, even when covered in sauce and even an hour later, which I&rsquom all about.

The sauce I made was really simple, too. I just melted some butter and added enough of the pineapple and habanero sauce to create a thinner but sticky consistency.

If you do try the Robert Rothschild Farm Pineapple & Habañero Sauce, it has a nice little kick by itself When mixed with the butter and on the wings I found it to be very mild in spice but a nice flavor that wasn&rsquot sweet or fruit-heavy.

I do also recommend having a spider strainer as it makes getting the wings out of the hot oil and letting the excess oil drain over the pot so easy with the risk of burning yourself. You&rsquoll also want a large bowl so you can toss the wings in the sauce and get them all nicely covered.

I usually use a long set of tongs to make sure each individual wing is covered. I left my wings whole, but if you are less lazy than me and want to divide them and cut off the wing tips, a pair of kitchen shears makes it really easy.

Sweet & Spicy Grilled Wings Recipe

I have grilled and glazed wings with many different spice rubs and sauces over the years.

This particular 5-Ingredient Habanero Peach Grilled Chicken Wings Recipe is a knock-out because it’s so easy to prepare, and the spicy-sweet flavor combination makes the wings completely irresistible.

The sweet peach preserves perfectly balance the spicy heat of fresh habanero peppers. The addition of dijon mustard rounds out the overall flavor providing depth.

You can adjust the heat to your sensitivity level by adding more or less fresh habanero peppers to the glaze. However, I feel 1 to 1 1/2 habaneros is the right amount for most palates.


  • For the sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 habanero chiles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • For the rub
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 lbs of chicken wings, cut into drumettes and flats
  • 1 or 2 chunks of light smoking wood, such as apple or cherry
  • Type of fire: two-zone indirect
  • Grill heat: medium-high

Pineapple Habanero Wings

These pineapple habanero chicken wings are the perfect appetizer or easy dinner! They're a delicious mix of sweet and spicy. It's time to give into your chicken wing cravings!

Recipe created by @flyin_pig_bbq


  • For the Wings:
  • 2-4 pounds of chicken wings
  • Jamaican flavored rub
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • For the Pineapple Habanero Sauce:
  • 1 pineapple, cut into spears and grilled until grill marks appear
  • 1 habanero, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 yellow pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of butter (Do not put in blender)


Cover the chicken wings in lime juice and season generously with Jamaican rub. Marinate overnight.

In a blender or food processor, blend all the ingredients except for butter. Pour mixture into a sauce pan with butter and simmer for 10-15 minutes on medium heat.

Preheat pellet smoker to 225 degrees F.

Smoke wings for about 45 minutes. Flip the wings and turn temperature up to 350 degrees F. This allows the skin to get crispy.

Allow them to cook until internal temperature reaches 175-180 degrees F.

Remove from pellet grill and sauce each wing.

Increase temperature on pellet grill to 450 degrees F. and then put them back on the grill for 5-7 minutes to allow the sauce to set. Remove from pellet grill when internal temperature reaches 190 degrees F.

Note: Use a cooling rack or jerky rack when making wings so you can remove the whole rack from the grill and flip them. This will help your pellet grill retain heat since you won't be opening the lid for very long.


For the Honey Habanero Buffalo Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cups (1 bottle) Cattleman&rsquos Grill Pit Fire Hot Sauce
  • 3 habaneros, sliced
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

Buttermilk Chipotle Ranch:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 clove of garlic, grated
  • 2 tsp fresh chives, minced
  • 1 chipotle in adobo sauce
  • Jacobsen Salt Co. Habanero Infused Salt, to taste
  • Jacobsen Salt Co. Tellicherry Black Peppercorns, fresh ground, to taste


Remove one grate from the Yoder Smokers Flat Top Adjustable Charcoal Grill. Light a chimney full of charcoal on the empty side of the grill.

Coat the wings with a thin layer (about 1 tablespoon) of Cattleman&rsquos Grill Pit Fire Hot Sauce and toss to coat. Season with Cattleman&rsquos Grill Trail Dust All Purpose Seasoning.

When the charcoal is red, dump out along the edge of the charcoal tray and spread out. Place one fist sized chunk of Cattleman&rsquos Grill Competition Cherry Smoking Wood on the hot coals.

Place the wings on the cooking grate, opposite the coal bed and away from the heat. Close down the airflow, leaving just a sliver open. Smoke the wings until they reach about 145ºF-150ºF, about 45 minutes.

To make the Buttermilk Chipotle Ranch dressing, combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

To make the Honey Habanero Buffalo Sauce, melt the butter in a sauce pan. Add the remaining ingredients. Whisk to incorporate. Bring to a simmer. Cook for a few minutes to infuse the seasonings. Transfer to a Vitamix Blender. Blend until smooth and light orange in color. Cool to room temperature. The butter may separate, so whisk again until all ingredients are distributed. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Light two chimneys of charcoal. When the wings reach 145ºF-150ºF internal temperature, dump the charcoal over the existing bed of charcoal and spread evenly over one half of the grill.

Slide the entire cooking grate filled with the wings over, to position them directly over the heat. Grill on all sides until the skin is crisped and lightly charred. Remove the wings when the internal temperature surpasses 175ºF. Slide the wings off to the indirect side to finish cooking, if needed.

Place the wings in a large mixing bowl. Add all the Honey Habanero Buffalo Sauce and toss to coat.

Serve the Honey Habanero Buffalo Wings with the Buttermilk Chipotle Ranch, for dipping.
