Ingredients

  • 20 Bone-in chicken wings
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp BBQ Dry Rub Seasoning (recipe below)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 1/2-2 Cups BBQ Sauce (recipe below)

For the rub:

For the BBQ sauce:

  • 3/4 Cup Unfiltered, unsweetened apple cider
  • 3/4 Cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/3 Cup Tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Instructions

Make the rub:

  • Mix all rub ingredients in an airtight container.  Shake well.

Make the sauce:

  • Whisk all ingredients together in a small sauce pan and simmer for 30 minutes.

For the wings:

  • Rub the chicken with the 1 1/2 Tbsp of rub and salt.
  • Place the wings in a 4 quart slow cooker. Pour 1/2 Cup of the BBQ sauce over the wings.
  • Cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Preheat the oven broiler.  Transfer the wings to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Broil for about 10 minutes on high, until the wings begin to turn golden brown in spots.
  • Warm the remaining BBQ sauce if it's cold and toss a cup of it with the wings. Add the rest if you like them extra spicy.
  • Serve hot
