Old Bay wings. They're a staple all around MD and sometimes, they are amazing. Most of the time, they're just deep fried wings tossed in dry crab spice. We knew that we could do better. Grilling gives these babies a smoky char and tossing in our Lemon Chesapeake gives them a tangy kick, while maintaining the crisp skin. The point? Just make 'em at your next tailgate. You can thank us later.
What you need
12 whole chicken wings, cut into drumettes and flats
3 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
1/3 cup Tessemae’s Lemon Chesapeake
Tessemae’s Hot Sauce, for serving
veggie sticks, for serving
What to do
Heat your grill to medium-low, or set a charcoal grill for cooking over indirect heat.
Toss the wings with the Old Bay and 2 tablespoons Lemon Chesapeake. Place the wings on the grill and cook, turning occasionally, until cooked through and crispy, about 30 minutes. (See below tips on grilling wings.)
Transfer the cooked wings to a bowl and toss with the Lemon Chesapeake. Serve hot, with the Hot Sauce and veggie sticks.
Wing Tips: Grilling wings on gas grills can be tricky because as the fat starts to render, your grill may flare up. Use a spray bottle of water on flares if they out of control. You can also rotate the wings around if there is a hot spot. If the flares are too much, try turning off one of the burners and placing all of the wings over that area.
