Hey all, first post here.

I recorded an episode of BBQ recently that had Steven's Louisville Wings recipe. I tried to write down most of the steps, but in a few parts he didn't actually mention the amounts I should be using for the ingredients. Does anyone know the actual precise recipe for this? It's got a rub, a marinade and a sauce involved, and it looks awesome. I'm dieing to make this today.

Hi bozer,
It's very strange that the recipe comes from an italian member but maybe I'm the first reading this post:
Here we go:

LOUISVILLE WINGS

Method: indirect grilling

Serves 4 to 6

5 pounds chicken wings (about 24 wings)
about 2 tablespoons salt, plus salt for sauce
about 2 tablespoons lemon pepper
about 2 tablespoons sweet paprika

For the marinade/ sauce:
1-1/4 sticks (10 tablespoons) salted butter
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2/3 cup Dijon-style mustard
2/3 cup Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2/3 cup (Kentucky) bourbon
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups hickory chips, soaked in water to cover for 1 hour, then drained.
Wash the chicken wings and blot dry. Place in a large bowl and toss with the salt, lemon pepper, and paprika. Let marinate for 1 hour.

Prepare the sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic and cook over
medium heat until garlic is fragrant and sizzling, but not brown, 3 minutes. Stir in the
mustard, hot sauce, lemon juice, bourbon, brown sugar, and pepper. Boil for 3
minutes. Let this mixture cool to room temperature.
Pour half the sauce over the wings and toss to mix. Let marinate for 4 hours.
Set up your grill for indirect grilling and preheat to medium. If using a gas grill, place the wood chips in the smoker box or in a smoker pouch. Preheat to high until you see smoke, then reduce the heat to medium. If using a charcoal grill, preheat to medium and toss the chips on the coals. Brush and oil the grill grate.
Arrange the chicken wings on the grate away from the fire and indirect grill until
golden brown and cooked through, 30 to 40 minutes. The last few minutes, move the wings a few at a time directly over the fire and direct grill until cracking crisp, basting with some of the remaining sauce.
Arrange the wings on a platter and pour the remaining sauce over them. Serve at once. Provide hot wet towels for cleaning your fingers.
Note: If you use a smoker, preheat it to 225 to 250 degrees. The wings will need about 2 hours.

I pick this recipe from the Steven' DVD. I hope he don't mind.
Bye bozer!

Are you kidding?
Kentucky is so far from Italy, We have only a "well known" whiskey from Tennesse ;-) that is so close!!!!!

Thanks! It's nice to see so many other fans of BBQU and BBQ'ing in general.

Im from Staten Island, NY and I've got a ducane 3 burner gas grill. I bought a little smoke box, threw in some of Steven's hickory wood chips and made these wings tonight for the first time. They came out great =)
