College Football and cookouts go hand in hand.  Since toe meets leather this weekend, let’s get going on a new recipe that is perfect for the Big Green Egg.


The Georgia Red Hot Wings are a delicious version of “hot” wings that aim to please.  They are hot, but it’s a savory heat, not the Hooters version of heat.  These wings are strong – they are the centerpiece of an excellent spread for your family and friends this time of year.




1 Cup soy sauce

¾ Cup water

½ Cup Texas Pete’s hot sauce

½ Cup lemon juice

1 ¼ Cup Hot & Spicy V8 Juice

4 Pounds Chicken Wings (jointed)




  1. Cut the wings apart at the joints, discarding the tips.
  2. Combine marinade ingredients in a large container with a lid and place all the wings in the container making sure they are all covered with marinade.


***It is best to let the wings marinate in the refrigerator overnight***


  1. Remove the wings from the marinade and sprinkle with your favorite chicken rub seasoning.
  2. Grill indirect on your smoker at about 350 degrees for 15 to 30 minutes on each side.  If grilling directly, monitor very closely and turn every ten minutes.  These are best eaten a little crisp; so let them cook for about an hour.


Serves 6-8 people (depending on the appetite)


Serve these with a chunky blue cheese dip, but go easy – they are excellent without any help.  On the side, a vinegar-based potato salad will cool off your palate.  Have some celery sticks to eat up the rest of the blue cheese, and good beer to wash it all down, and you are in business.
