        These wings are not your typical hot wings. Using your favorite cola adds a slight sweet touch to these beauties. I will say that I tend to add a bit of extra cayenne pepper when I make them. I’ve seen someone substitute the wings for breast strips, I suppose if your strips aren’t too small it could work.

        Ingredients

        • 3 pounds chicken wings
        • 1 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
        • 1 can (12 ounces) cola
        • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
        • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
        • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
        • Blue cheese salad dressing (for serving)

        Directions

        1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a small bowl, combine hot sauce, cola, soy sauce, cayenne and pepper.
        2. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Grill chicken wings, covered, over indirect medium heat on an oiled rack for 10 minutes. Grill 30-40 minutes longer, turning occasionally and basting frequently with sauce until wings are nicely glazed.
        3. Serve with salad dressing and enjoy.
