  • 1kg wings
  • 100 gms of Tropics Foods Texas BBQ chicken fry mix
  • (OR 30g BBQ Rub ,10g baking powder ,10g self raising flour )
  • 1/2 pint buttermilk with a generous shake of hot sauce
  • Favourite BBQ sauce, we used Red Dog Texas Chipolte which has a nice kick.



Soak the wings overnight in the buttermilk overnight, if you can’t get buttermilk you can use 250ml milk with 1tsb of lemon juice. (I like to separate the wings at the joint, but you can leave them whole if desired. )


After marinating take them out of the milk, drain but don’t pat dry.


Toss your wings in the chicken fry mix. Put them on a rack on a plate and leave in the fridge to dry for 30 mins.


Set up your bbq for indirect cooking and heat to around 350°F or 180°C.


Cook for 40 mins..


Check internal temp is 165°F or 74°C


Remove from bbq, and toss in a sauce of choice. Serve with blue cheese sauce and celery
