Bourbon Chicken Wings + Tailgating= Awesome

It’s tailgating time and we’ve got the perfect bourbon chicken wings recipe for your next big game. These Smoked Honey Bourbon Chicken Wings cooked over a charcoal grill are hard to beat, and from our experience, they’ll disappear before you know it. Not down to smoke the wings? Just make the Bourbon Barbecue sauce and use it for pretty much anything, including fish and veggies. You’ll love it’s rich flavor and sweetness with that nice kick of bourbon.

We got this recipe from the awesome guys over at Extraordinary BBQ, and they didn’t disappoint. The spices all work together perfectly, and anything it’s covered in gets an automatic taste upgrade. When we made this recipe, guests were shocked at how simple it was. And the fact that the sauce was homemade? Bonus points.

If you’re a member of the Bourbon Club, you should have a few excellent bottles to choose from. If not, head over to our Bourbon Club page to see how easy it is to get a uniquely curated bottle of bourbon delivered to your door each month.
