How Long to Cook Wings on Grill
There are few things in life as satisfying as biting into a juicy, perfectly cooked chicken wing. The problem is that it can be hard to tell exactly how long to cook them for on the grill. You want them to be charred on the outside and tender on the inside, but you don’t want them to burn or become rubbery. This guide will help you determine how long to cook wings on your grill so that they’re cooked through without being overcooked!
Cooking times can vary based on a number of factors, including the size and type of chicken wings you’re grilling.
As with any type of meat, cooking times can vary based on a number of factors, including the size and type of chicken wings you’re grilling. Smaller wings take less time to cook than larger wings. If you’re looking for more information about how long it takes to grill chicken wings, we recommend checking out this chart from Meathead Goldwyn at Amazingribs.com:
- 1/2″ thick – 20 minutes total (10 minutes per side)
- 3/4″ thick – 35 minutes total (15 minutes per side)
Slight variations in temperature will also affect cooking time.
The time it takes to cook a batch of wings will depend on several factors: the temperature of your grill and how close you are to it, as well as the size and type of wings you’re using. A hot grill should be used for thicker cuts like drumsticks and wings, while smaller cuts like chicken tenders should be cooked over lower heat levels so that they don’t burn before being cooked through.
Smaller wings take less time to cook than larger wings.
The size of your wings will affect how long they take to cook. Smaller wings cook faster than larger wings. If you want to cook small and large wings at the same time, you may need to adjust your grilling times accordingly.
Smaller chicken wings are easier to flip than larger ones, so if you’re cooking a lot of them at once (say, for a party), this could be an advantage for you: fewer chances that some will fall through the cracks between your grill grates or get stuck under one another while cooking! Smaller chicken pieces also tend to have more tender meat inside because there’s less bone structure around it; thus they’re less likely to dry out during cooking time — especially if they’re cooked over high heat on an open flame like ours here today!
Cooking times also depend on how hot your grill is and how far away the wings are from the heat source.
If you’re using a gas grill, cooking times will be shorter. If you are using a charcoal grill, cooking times will be longer. The farther away from the heat source that your wings are placed, the longer it will take them to cook–and vice versa.
Charcoal grills tend to be hotter than gas grills because charcoal burns hotter than propane or natural gas, giving you more control over the temperature of your grill.
Charcoal grills tend to be hotter than gas grills because charcoal burns hotter than propane or natural gas, giving you more control over the temperature of your grill. You can control the heat of the grill by adjusting the distance of the wings from the heat source.
Grill them until they go from red to white
You want to cook them until they go from red to white. That means, you don’t want to cook them until they’re black, or burnt and dried out.
We hope this guide has helped you decide how long to cook your chicken wings on the grill. You can use these tips to experiment with different cooking times and find out which one works best for you. Remember that there are many factors that affect how long it takes for wings to cook, including the size and type of meat as well as its distance from the heat source. This means that even though we gave some general guidelines here–such as grilling small wings for 10 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit–your results may vary depending on what other factors are involved!
