If you are looking  to change up your wing recipe then these wings in gochujang sauce is what you need. I really enjoy creating new flavors and applying them to my food.  Testing these flavors on wings is perfect since the meat absorbs spices and marinades well.  Mixed in with the grilled flavors from the charcoal grill, these sweet and spicy asian flavors cover the savory and tender wings making for a delicious meal.    

How to make gochujang sauce.

Wings in gochujang sauce ingredients

The gochujang sauce will work as a marinade as well as finishing sauce.  In a mixing bowl, add gochujang paste, minced garlic and ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, brown sugar and honey.  Mix the ingredients together until you get a thick dark red liquid.

Pour half of the sauce onto the wings, toss them and let them marinade for 30 minutes. I always go with fresh detached chicken wing pieces which helps with time management.

How to grill the perfect wings.

Heat up the grill to 325 degrees and set it for indirect heat. Place the marinated wings directly on the grates and let them cook for 45-60 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees.  Flip the wings half way through to ensure an even cook throughout.  In the last 5 minutes of the cook, brush the wings with the left over gochujang sauce allowing it to caramelize over the grilled chicken wings creating a tacky and sweet coating.

Remove the wings in gochujang sauce off the grill, rest for 10 minutes, top off with some sesame seeds and green onions and enjoy!
