Instructions to make:

Sledge's Grilled Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings

Ingredients:

- Chicken Wings

- Sledge's Sweet and Spicy Rib Rub

Stuff you will need:

- A good knife

- Aluminum foil

- Ziploc gallon storage or freezer bag

- Grill

- Tongs

Instructions:

1) Prepare your chicken wings! I consider one batch of wings to be about 2 or 2 1/2 pounds. This package is enough for two batches of wings.

2) If you have never cut chicken wings before, start by grabbing the tip and stretching out the wing.. the muscle structure of the wing will stay stretched out while you hold it allowing for an easy cut.

3) If you do not have a sharp knife that will easily cut through bone, then grab the wing and snap the drumette away from the wingette in the opposite direction you were cutting, like in this pic.. the bone will pop out of the cartilage thus separating the two pieces.

4) Now just cut the skin/meat that is still connecting the two pieces.

5) Now cut the wing tip off and discard it.

6) Cut the rest of your batch of wings the same way and place all the pieces on a paper towel covered plate.

7) Get a small bowl of Sledge's Sweet and Spicy Rib Rub ready and get a gallon size ziploc bag for shaking your wings in. Now use paper towels and dry each wing individually and place them in the ziploc bag in rows. Drying the wings can take a while, so go ahead and start your grill and get it heated up and cleaned.

8) Sprinkle one side of the wings with the rub so they are coated, flip the bag over and coat the other side too.

9) Close the bag with a bit of air in it, and shake that bag to make sure the wings are fully coated.

10) You will want to cook your wings on the grill with indirect heat. Line up your wings on the grill on one side, then set the burners on your grill to high, except for the burner your wings are sitting on, turn that one off.

11) After letting them cook for about 20 minutes, you will want to flip them over and let them cook another 20 minutes.

12) Use a meat thermometer if you unsure if the wings are done or not. Chicken is done at 170 degrees. Depending on your grill and the temperature it is maintaining, you may have to cook them longer or shorter. Once they are done, put them on an aluminum foil lined plate and then cover them with another layer of aluminum foil and let the wings sit for a good 5-10 minutes. This way the wings will rest and retain their moisture.

And here they are done!

Additional tips:

1) You can cook them faster by cooking them over direct heat, but you will have to flip them very often and the more you flip them, more of the seasoning will be burned off onto the grill surface. That is why I cook them slower to retain the most flavor.

2) You can get the wings crispier by turning the burner underneath them on in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking. Just keep flipping them. But because this rub has sugar in it, the wings will want to burn quickly! So keep an eye on them and if they start charring up, lower the heat or take them off the grill!

Try this recipe! :D But remember, you have to cook them different in the oven with that roasting pan.. Once I get a roasting pan myself, I'll definitely update my blog with oven style versions of ribs, wings, etc.

      My water heater had a seizure. Made some weird sounds and made my lights go crazy in the house earlier. Wtf I can't catch a break. I took a 2 hour lunch break and drained the tank out. Im hoping it removed sediment and it'll work ok. I'm testing it tonight. I'm waiting on a handyman guy to text me back about when he can look at it. Fml.

      Lets take a moment of appreciation for how utterly bad ass Maki's fight was on this weeks Fire Force. Same dude Arthur struggled with. That rig Vulcan set her up with is wicked. I'm really not ready for season 1 to end. Same with Dr. Stone. Both totally different series with outstanding world building. Its gonna feel a bit empty when they're done. MHA will probably start picking up steam soon though. Stars Align has been a nice surprise, and Azur Lane is totally my guilty pleasure this season. *ahem* But I digress.

      My PC got screwed again. It wasn't just that memory stick. After I pulled a different memory stick, my hard crashes 90% stopped. I was still getting crashes about once or twice a day, but this time it was giving me blue screen errors instead of solid random crashes every 15 mins - 1 hour. All my drivers are up to date, but I kept getting driver_irql_not less or equal crashes with iastora.sys as the issue or it'd be a kmode_exception crash with no driver stated. Turns out iastora is the hard drive driver. I was worried my hard drive was failing. Doesn't look like it is. What I did was manually change the driver from the installed "Intel C220 series chipset SATA AHCI Controller" driver to the "Standard SATA AHCI Controller". As far as I can tell, that Intel driver was a couple years old and I'm guessing was not communicating correctly with my motherboard. Thats my guess at least. The motherboard has had multiple firmware updates over the year, including one earlier this year but that hard drive driver was still 2 years old. The new standard driver is recent as of this year. So far so good. Its been 3 days now and not a single crash of any kind. My PC seems stable now so I'm starting to reinstall my games and maybe I'll have the time to do that server transfer of AC since I won't have to worry about my PC crashing in the middle of a FTP connection.

      I bought a new power tool set on saturday:
      https://slickdeals.net/f/13466749-ryobi-18-volt-one-lithium-ion-cordless-6-tool-combo-kit-with-2-1-5-ah-lithium-batteries-dual-chemistry-charger-and-bag-179?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1
      I checked that brickseek site and one of the home depots near me still had one in stock so I grabbed it quick. $70 off is a pretty damn good deal to me and comparable to the black friday deals last year. Most of last years BF deals for these tool sets were mostly larger combos with tools I didn't necessarily need and at a higher price, but still damn good deals. This set however has just about every tool I've been wanting except for an angle grinder. Its not brushless, but brushless tools would be more costly. That and all the brushless tool combos last black friday lacked multiple features the regular tools had like basic LED lights on the tools so you can see what you're doing.
      Now that I have tools I can do repair work on my deck. Which is how my weekend went. lol. I fixed a support piece with a new 1x6. I'll replace a couple deck boards this upcoming weekend and the deck should be good enough for winter.

      There is nothing like random spiders coming down from the AC vent over your bed. I swear this is happened 4 times that I know of, or thought I knew of in the past 4-5 years. I'd wake up in the middle of the night, and the small illumination from my room fan would let me see a damn spider hanging in front of my face. I'd swat at it, not feel anything and go back to sleep. At fist I chalked it up to being still half asleep and maybe I was just seeing things. Then one time I woke up with a somewhat swollen red patch inside my bicep that was warm to touch all day. Then two nights ago as I put my phone on my night stand with the screen still on I saw something floating above me and I swatted it with the bed comforter. Not wanting to be bitten again, I got up, shook the bed sheets out and upon not seeing anything I went back to sleep... Yesterday I found a dead quarter sized wolf spider in the middle of the floor. I looked up a wolf spider bite and it sure enough it seems that's what bit me months ago. 🙄 Its just weird they like that particular vent. They aren't dangerous, but the bite was pretty annoying for 24 hours. Seeing as my ceiling fan blades are pretty close to the vent, it amazes me they don't get blown sideways coming down like that. I wish they'd just crawl on the wall and go somewhere else than landing on me while I sleep. Winter can't come fast enough.
