Behind the Recipe

Wings. Butter. Hot Sauce. It’s Almost Too Easy.

Okay,  the first thing you’ll notice is that this recipe actually has six ingredients, but we took some liberties because half of them (salt, pepper & vegetable oil) are almost guaranteed to be in your pantry already. 

Which leaves just three key ingredients left to pull off the easiest, tastiest, lip-smacking party wings you ever cooked on the grill!

The beautiful part about this grilled buffalo wings recipe is how you can make them different every time! While this recipe uses buffalo sauce, you can sub in any type of sauce: teriyaki, garlic parmesan, spicy Asian, honey mustard... whatever gets your mouth watering! Go crazy with it.

Here's a few extra tips for braaing the perfect party wings: 

  • Before the braai, you can marinate your chicken wings to ensure the flavor really gets into all of those nooks and crannies. 
  • You can cook these wings up to 3 days ahead. When you’re ready to eat, just place 'em on the grill for some char and heat, toss them in buffalo sauce, and devour.
  • Only brush your wings with sauce during the last minute of cooking. 
  • After braaing, toss your wings in the buffalo sauce while they're still warm for the perfect glaze.

  • 1 kg of party wings 
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, plus more
  • ½ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper, plus more
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup of hot sauce


  1. Pat your party wings very dry with paper towels. 
  2. Place wings in a large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in a large bowl until coated on all sides.
  3. Melt a half stick of butter in a small pot. Once melted, remove from the heat, and stir in ⅓ cup of hot sauce until well-blended. Voila! you just made buffalo sauce.

Cooking Instructions

  1. 1

    Using your Nexgrill app set your Pellet Grill to the Smoke cooking method at 180°C and set your probe temperature to 74°C.

  2. 2

    Place your wings on the grill over medium heat, and close the lid, turning occasionally until the skin starts to brown. (If you need to work in batches, that’s okay.)

  3. 3

    Change the temperature to medium-high to 200°C, and cook for an extra 5-10 minutes.

  4. 4

    During the final minute of cooking, take ¼ cup of your buffalo sauce mixture and start brushing those wings all over.

  5. 5

    Once your probe reads 74°C, pull wings from the grill and into a large bowl.

  6. 6

    Pour the rest of your buffalo sauce into the bowl, and toss them to coat evenly.

  7. 7

    Season with a little salt and pepper, and serve ‘em up hot!
