    Time to say good bye to summer and wish everyone a Happy Labor Day!  Be it with one last barbecue, the last dive in the pool, and the last break before the kid’s crazy schedules start!  We barbecue pretty much all year around but we definitely barbecue more frequently during the summer time.  I want to squeeze in one more BBQ recipe before its season ends.  Hope you enjoy my BBQ Chicken Wings recipe as much as my family did.

    Today’s recipe is adapted from my BBQ Short Ribs recipe.  We really like this marinade and use it often, but one day I made the same marinade for chicken wings and decided to change a little bit by adding honey and an apple.  It was another hit especially for our children, so I decided to record this slightly adapted version in my Just One Coookbook as well.  It’s really easy and delicious, just like the BBQ Short Ribs recipe.

    I hope you enjoy the holiday with your family and friends, and Happy Monday to everyone else who’s having regular Monday! 🙂

    3. Start grill. We usually use gas grill for cooking, but for charcoal flavor we also use this mini Weber once in a while…

    Recipe Notes

    Oven: If you want to use oven, preheat oven to 400F. Place chicken in a single layer on a wire rack over oven tray lined with aluminum foil (for easy cleaning later). Bake 30 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken wings) until well browned and cooked through. If chicken is cooked through but not brown enough, then change the oven setting to broil and broil for 2-3 minutes at the end.
