The perfect grilling recipe for the spooky season, these devil claws are dripping in BBQ sauce ‘blood’.
They look like a trick, but taste like a treat. The gnarly, scaly claw shape is thanks to one easy hack – a straightened-out chicken wing! Yup, all you need to create these monstrous devil’s claws are whole chicken wings, which are spread out and held in place by a single skewer. You’ll need black food coloring, Black seasoning and I recommend Hardcore Carnivore Burnt Ends Sauce for the bloody claw tips!
5lb whole chicken wings 2 teaspoons dark soy sauce 1/4cup honey 1cup chicken broth 2 teaspoons black food coloring 2–4 tablespoons Black seasoning Hardcore Carnivore Burnt Ends Sauce or other BBQ sauce
place the chicken wings in a resealable bag.
In a bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, chicken broth and black food coloring. Mix to combine, then pour over chicken wings and seal bag.
Massage the bag so the marinade is evenly distributed and all the wings are coated, then refrigerate for 1 hour.
Discard the marinade, then work one at a time to stretch the chicken wings out, and insert a singe skewer to help it hold shape. It’s easiest to do this from the back side of the wing. Repeat until all wings are stretched and secured.
Season generously with Black seasoning.
Prepare a grill for indirect cooking, then place the chicken wings on the cool/indirect side. Close the lid and cook for 20 minuted until meat is thoroughly cooked and skin has crisped.
To serve, dip the wings tips in Hardcore Carnivore burnt ends sauce “blood”.
