It’s fall and for many a people that means boots and scarves and pumpkin spiced everything…..etc. For the rest of us it means football and tailgating and FOOOOOOOOOOD! I love cooking for a crowd and there is no better excuse in my mind than football. Do I watch the games? No, but I get a serious kick out of feeding people. My personal Super Bowl lasts from September to February and it is always full of touch downs (see what I did there?)
I’m planning to hook you up with the best of the best tailgating recipes and tasty finger foods from here until the final whistle. One of the first things that comes to mind when I think finger licking food is chicken wings! Hopefully you’ve tried the Ultimate Smoked Buffalo Wings (game changer.) Now you can branch out a little bit and give my jerk chicken wings a try! These are so much more than just shaking a bottle of jerk seasoning on wings.
These wings are seasoned with a perfectly balanced blend of savory spice and cooked low and slow on the smoker to add amazing depth of flavor, but the recipe can be followed by baking the wings in the oven (if you must.) The secret ingredient is the pickled peppers. Combined with the fresh green onions, ginger, and garlic create a beautifully acidic and fresh sauce for the wings that will just blow your mind. The jerk seasoning adds in those vibrant flavors that really marry the whole sauce together. I like to use Caribeque’s Jamaican Jerk Seasoning, but you can sub with your favorite brand! I like to make 3 or 4 different types of wings every time I’m cooking a batch, and these fly off of the tray first every single time. Hope you love them!
