Wings on the grill | News, Sports, Jobs

I can’t remember how long it’s been since I enjoyed a batch of wings. Truth be told, I love them, but ordering them at a restaurant is asking for an embarrassing waste. That’s why I love making and eating wings at home, where I can cover my hands and face in sauce and no one cares.

Now that it’s grilling season, cooking wings will be easier than ever. No matter how you like your wings, mild, medium or hot, there is a recipe for everyone. Prepare a simple marinade for the wings, let it work its magic, then grill, baste and enjoy. And don’t forget the celery sticks, blue cheese dressing, and lots of wet wipes.
