This past Saturday was my birthday and rather than going out I opted to make some wings because after all they are one of my food groups so says Mrs. G. I'm always on the look out for a new wing recipe and I thought these Spicy Ranch Chicken Wings sounded pretty good.

Started off by mixing together 3/4 cup of Franks (I put that sh!t on everything), 1/4 cup of melted butter, 3 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar in a gallon zip-lock bag and then dumped in 3 lbs of chicken wings. The directions said to let it marinate in teh fridge. Didn't see that when I first glanced at it, so they only got about an hour and half.

Pulled them out of the marinade and then liberallyu sprinkled them with one package of ranch dressing mix and 1/2tsp of paprika

Then onto the Egg at 400 direct with a raised grate

Let them go for about 35-40 minutes and they were done. Some steak fries, celery and ranch to finish up the meal.

The wings were pretty tasty. Not really spicy at all, but I really enjoyed the twang from the powdered ranch mix. Think next time I might add some chipotle powder to them just to really get them spicy.

Those plates of wings look excellently tasty! I like the sound of the recipe and will keep the concept in mind for a future wing cook.

You might try substituting powdered Italian dressing sometime. I've had wings made with it and they're pretty good.

Those wings look excellent, Griffin! I'm not a huge fan of Ranch dressing, but the powdered stuff is good. I've never seen it on wings before, though. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Look great bud! If I could ever find wings just pre-done for me so I didn't have to cut them up I'd make them more often...I'm sometimes lazy :)

You can't find them pre-chopped Eddie? Why not just cook them whole, then?

Nope, can never find them pre chopped around here.

I can't eat them whole because for some reason it bothers me looking at it that way. I can't explain my weirdness on that more than right there :)

Nice looking baskets Griff!

Does that one have some potato wedges in there? I am going to have to give these a try.

Good eye, sroach. yeah, they are all sitting on a bed of Ore-Ida Texas Crispers (extra spicy potato wedges). First time I saw them at the store, thought I'd give them a shot. Pretty tasty.

Nice I will pick up a bag, always looking for a good side potato.

Any chicken wing is a winner and those look to be no exception.
