Mutha’s Wings That Bite Back


This special recipe is for those of us cooped up (No chicken pun intended) for the long Maine winters.  Low and slow can be done in the house if you have the time and patience.  Which, if you’re cooped up, shouldn’t be a problem!

Having the oven on low and slow for a few hours, also helps heat the house so, we are doing more than just cooking here!

Recommended cuts:  We know wings are hard to find and priced crazier than ever before.  You can do this recipe with whole wings or pre-cut to drumettes and flats.


Bone-in Chicken Wings
Bub n’ Mutha’s Honey ‘n Heat
Soy Sauce
Cooking oil (your choice)

1. Set oven to 225 and pre-heat.

2. Mix oil, soy sauce and 1 TBL. Bub ‘n Mutha’s Honey ‘n Heat until well bended.

3. Pour over wings in a ziplock bag or vacuum seal bagor small container that has a locking cover. Shake till all the wings are covered and let sit for a minimum of 2 hours in the fridge.

3. For indoors, place wings on a baking sheet. Sprinkle as much of Bub n’ Mutha’s Honey ‘n Heat as you can stand on one side.

4. Place in the oven at 225 for an hour. After one hour, turn the pieces over and sprinkle more Honey ‘n Heat on the new side repeat for an additional 45 minutes to an hour.

5. If using a grill, I prefer to let the wings cook a while indirectly away from the charcoal. For a smoker, do what you usually do, however, with grill or smoker, put the Honey ‘n Heat on both sides before placing them on the grate.

Once they are done, we like to switch to the broiler setting and place the chicken in for 2 to 3 minutes on each side to really crisp up the skin.

Bub’s Special Suppah Sauce

Some folks want even more flavor on their fingers and there ain’t nothin’ better than good old barbecue sauce. But, buying that bottled stuff has a lot of “flavors” that were invented in a lab by guys in white coats. I’m thinkin’ Bub n’ Mutha fans can do a lot better. So, let’s make some sauce.

1. In a medium sized sauce pan, heat the chopped up bacon until there’s plenty of fat in the bottom of the pan. Add onions and stir until tender.

2. Pour in catsup, vinegar and maple syrup, mustard and Dinnah Dust. Wisk until well blended. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.

Hint: For different flavor profiles you can add one shot of bourbon (simmer for 45 minutes) or hot sauce to taste.
