We're Drooling Over These Maple Bacon Wings

0815BBQ knows the best part of chicken wings is the sauce they get smothered in. That's why they've made these maple bacon wings that feature a finger lickin' good sauce made with bourbon, maple syrup, bacon, butter, and cola. So fire up the grill and make sure you've got some extra napkins, trust us. 

Maple Bacon Wings

  • 6-7 chicken wings
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup of maple syrup
  • ¼ cup of cola
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 dash bourbon
  • Cut the wings in half and season them with salt and pepper. Grill for 35 minutes on indirect heat at 320° F.
  • Place a cast iron pan on the grill. Grill the bacon and then remove from pan. Chop the bacon into smaller pieces save for later. 
  • Add butter, bourbon, cola, and maple syrup into the cast iron pan along with the bacon drippings.
  • Once the sauce starts caramelizing, add in the chopped bacon and serve over the wings or as a dip.
