Prep Directions:

Note: This recipe specifies a Traeger Grill, however, you can use any grill with a thermostat and one that allows you to use pellets.

  • See above for ALL prep instructions
  • Load Traeger with RESERVE BLEND PELLETS

FOR THE SAUCE: Make while wings are grilling

  • In a small stockpot or cast iron sauce pot add all sauce ingredients
  • Simmer over medium heat for 5-8 minutes or until mixture starts to thicken some
  • For more added flavor, substitute Happy Ending BBQ Sauce for the Soy Sauce

Cooking Directions:

  • Preheat your Traeger grill to 350 degrees
  • In a large Kingsford pan, SKU 8463135 add the wings and seasoning
  • Mix well to combine (can be mixed and held in the fridge the day before)
  • Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the spices to activate and soak into the wings
  • Once your Traeger is heated to temp, place the wings on the grill grate and close the lid
  • Sear on all sides and move to the rack or cool spot once they are close to done
  • Fully cooked wings will have clear juices and little to no red on the bone
  • Wings will take about 30 minutes per side
  • Remove from the grill and place into a NEW Kingsford grill pan
  • Adjust seasoning if desired
  • Toss with Honey Curry Wing sauce and Serve
