Want to make a statement, then these smothered turkey wings will do the trick.  Unlike chicken wings, 1 turkey wing is plenty for one person to handle because of their taradactle like size.  With the cold weather outside and needing some warm comfort food, I decided to make a delicious homemade gravy to top it all off.  Smothered in a delicious homemade sauce, this turkey wing recipe is easy and fun to make.

Season turkey wings for flavor

Smothered turkey wing ingredients

My local store only had frozen turkey wings.  If that is the case for you, make sure you completely defrost the wings before seasoning them.  Place them in the refrigerator the night before and they should be ready to go the next morning.

Separated turkey wings

Seasoned turkey wings

Before seasoning the turkey wings, separate them into two pieces.  With a sharp knife, slide down the middle of the joint separating the drum from the flat.  Next coat them with olive oil for the binder and generously season with your choice of BBQ rub.  Make sure to cover all sides. This meat can take the extra flavor.

Time to grill the Turkey Wings.

Grilled turkey wings

Preheat the grill to 375 degrees and set it up for indirect heat.  Total grill time should be about 1 hour or until the wings reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees. Make sure to flip the wings half way through to ensure an even cook on all sides.

Remove them off the grill and let them rest for 10 minutes.

Let’s get saucy.

Homemade gravy ingredients

Nothing screams comfort food more than homemade gravy or sauce.  Smothering anything in a delicious, thick, flavorful sauce enhances the experience of the dish.

Start with melting a stick of butter and adding sliced onion and bell peppers.  Sautee them over low heat until the texture softens.  Next, add in the seasonings, flour and chicken stock.  Mix these together and continue to cook over low heat until the sauce thickens up.  Finish off with freshly chopped Italian herbs including parsley, basil and oregano.

Homemade gravy

It’s finally time to enjoy the smothered turkey wings.  Take your flavorful homemade gravy and pour it all over the wings. Serve and enjoy!
