  • Gas, charcoal, or pellet grill


  • 3 lbs chicken wings
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Traeger fin and feather seasoning blend optional
  • Blue cheese, ranch, buffalo sauce for serving, optional


  • Place chicken wings in a large mixing bowl. Toss wings with olive oil, salt, and pepper, then set aside. If using a spice seasoning or dry rub, add olive oil to wings, but omit salt and pepper.
  • Preheat grill to 450 F. Place wings directly on grill and cook for 20-30 minutes (this really depends on the size/thickness of the wings), turning every ~10 minutes or so, until an internal temperature of 165F is reached. Serve immediately, with sauces, if using.


  • To reheat - Place chicken wings on a parchment or foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Reheat in an oven preheated to 375F until skin crisps up again, about 10 minutes. 
  • To serve with classic buffalo sauce -  combine ½ cup Frank's hot sauce, 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, and 1 Tbsp white vinegar in a sauce pan. Bring to a simmer until butter is melted. Toss cooked wings with sauce just before serving.
