Honey Whiskey Wings

You can make these Honey Whiskey Wings grilled, use an air fryer, or pick your favorite cooking method. You just have to sauce 'em and toss 'em - and don't forget to have them with a side of whiskey!


  • 1 package chicken wings

  • 4 TBSP Kosmos Q Dirty Bird

  • 1 cup Goldbar Whiskey

  • 1 cup ketchup

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp Aleppo pepper (more if you want it spicier)

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Season wings liberally with dirty bird rub. Place wings on pellet smoker at 400 degrees.

  2. Place small saucepot on stove over medium heat. Combine 1 cup whiskey, 1 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup honey, 3 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp Aleppo pepper and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer. Cook 5-10 minutes until incorporated and slightly reduced/thickened. Remove from heat.

  3. After 25 minutes, flip your chicken wings and let them continue cooking for another 30 minutes or until crispy/charred to your liking.

  4. Toss wings in sauce and serve immediately. Alternatively, you can brush wings with sauce while on grill or smoker.

(Note: I grilled my wings but you don’t have to. Cook them how you like, then sauce ‘em and toss ‘em!)
