Grilled Honey Mustard Whiskey Injected Chicken Wings, or what I like to call, GHMWICW...where both the name and the meal are a mouthful.
Tonight was one of those nights were Zoë told me to go buy a big piece of meat and grill it. So what did I do? I bought chicken wings. Tomorrow night is Ribeye Friday, so I just didn't want to screw THAT up.
I have had whiskey injected wings before, but tonight was the first time I went honey mustard instead of hot sauce. I injected 10 wings with 2 ounces of Old Grand Dad's Whiskey. Good stuff that Old Grand Dad's. After playing
nurse doctor with the wings, I injected each of the ten wings evenly with the booze and then covered them in a rub made up of brown sugar, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard, cayenne powder and coriander. I would give measurements, but I'm not really sure what I did. I was too busy enjoying my 7th beer to Christmas.
While I let the wings rest in their boozy cocoon of peace, I mixed together 1/4 cup of honey, 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard and 2 tablespoons of butter.
I preheated the grill to indirect medium high. After the grill had arrived at temp, I placed the wings over direct heat for about 5 minutes a side. From there, I moved them to indirect for an additional ten minutes. Once done, I mixed them with the honey mustard sauce and served.
