John’s Up The Forty Creek Wings


  • 2 pounds of chicken wings or bone in, skin on chicken thighs
  • 1/2 C of Forty Creek Whisky
  • 1/4 C of ground black pepper
  • 1/4 C paprika
  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp of salt
  • 2 Tbsp of dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of ginger powder
  • 3/4 C Forty Creek Whisky
  • 1 1/2 C Chili Sauce
  • 2 C Orange Juice
  • 1 C Molasses
  • 1/2 C Honey
  • 1/4 C Steak Sauce
  • 1/8 C Worchester Sauce
  • 1/8 C Brown Sugar
  • 1 Clove Garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 tsp Celery Seeds
  • 1 tsp Coriander (ground)


  1. Prepare a rub/marinade using all the ingredients, except the wings and whisky. If you want to spice up your wings just add more cayenne pepper or Tabasco.

  2. Take a large zip lock bag and add the chicken wings. Separate the wing tip from the drum stick if they come as one large piece.

  3. Add 1/4 to 1/2 C of the rub to the zip lock and give the bag a good shake coating all of the pieces.

  4. Add your 1/2 C of Forty Creek Whisky and give the bag another shake.

  5. Marinate in fridge over night or for at least 6-8 hours.

  6. Fire up the grill and pre heat to medium high. Coat the grilling surface with a non stick spray prior to lighting the BBQ.

  7. When the BBQ is at the desired temperature (350F) add the wings and grill 5-6 minutes a side or until they are done.

  8. Brush with the Forty Creek BBQ sauce in the last couple minutes and reduce the heat to low. Do not add the sauce too early as the sauce will easily burn. Continue basting the wings on med low heat until the sauce is warmed through.

  9. Serve and Enjoy.

  1. Combine all ingredients until smooth.
