Tsunami Spin Wings with Sweet Tamarind BBQ Sauce

Remember that sauce I made for the Asian Mini Tacos the other day?


Yeah, the one with sweet soy sauce, tamarind, and black pepper.  In that post I mentioned it would be a great sauce on wings.

Not to say I told you so, but I was right (wait....I guess I AM telling you so! ha ha) 


This isn't a recipe post, just a quick follow up to the previous idea.  Since the sauce has Asian influences, I seasoned the wings with one of my favorite commercial rubs for chicken and seafood - Dizzy Pig's Tsunami Spin.  It is loaded with Asian flavors like ginger, galangal, fenugreek, and sesame seeds in addition to other spices.  


Grilled them with my normal wing technique - 30 minutes indirect at 375f.


Flipped them and cooked another 20 minutes.  I tossed them in a big bowl with some of the Sweet Tamarind BBQ Sauce, put them back on the grill and cooked another 5-10 minutes.


Topped them with some toasted sesame seeds and some red pepper flake for some delicious chicken wings.


[Standard Disclaimer]  I pay full price for my Dizzy Pig rubs.  They are a favorite of barbecue and grilling guys and gals everywhere, especially with the Big Green Egg folks.  They use fresh ingredients, use no MSG and are gluten free.  Most importantly, they taste great.

  4. You know what I love about wings? EVERYTHING. The drumettes even come with a handle. The messier they are, the greater the fun.

  7. I've fried chicken wings and baked them, but I've never grilled them. Next time I'm going to follow your method.

    Your pictures are awesome!

  11. Things I love - all things tamarind. All things Asian-spiced. All things that combine those two. I'd be licking the sauce/spices off those wings (but not actually eating the wings)...totally a legit vegetarian thing to do.

  12. I am not surprised at all that this sauce was good on wings...Delicious! I think the Asian tacos with wings on the side would make a great presentation and a meal.


    I know I say it all the time but, I really do enjoy your grilling style/method. I get a lot of good ideas.

  15. Tried this over the weekend with some smoked chicken thighs. I dusted the thighs with the Tsuanmi Spin and cooked then indirect on my egg at 300 for about an hour. Pulled them off and added the sauce on top of the thighs. It was very good.
