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.
