For the Wings

  • 3 lbs Fresh Alberta Chicken Wings cut into sections discard the wing tips or save for stock
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Western Family vegetable oil, for grill

For the Seasoned Buffalo Sauce

  • 6 tbsp Western Family unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup Western Family Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp Western Family garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Western Family onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp Western Family chili powder


  • Heat the grill to medium-high. Season the wings with salt and pepper.
  • Using grill tongs, dip a wad of paper towels in oil, then carefully rub the grill grate until glossy and coated. Grill the wings, covered, flipping occasionally, until they are golden brown, crispy and completely cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • If there are flare-ups or the wings begin to burn, move the wings to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the heat. Try to avoid grill marks on the wings and aim for a nice even golden-brown colour.
  • While the wings are cooking, make the sauce. Put the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about one minute until the butter is melted. Stir in the hot sauce, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder. Set aside.
  • Dip the cooked wings in the sauce and serve immediately or serve the wings plain with the sauce on the side.
