Chicken wings are a grilling essential. Whether it’s for your backyard BBQ, or your go-to Super Bowl Party recipe. Preparing the wings on a plank will protect the meat from direct flame and ensure they stay nice and moist, while also being infused with smoky flavor.

Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 – 5 x 11″ Cedar Planks
  • 2 lbs. Chicken Wings
  • 1/2 Cup Buffalo Wings Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Butter, melted
  • Cayenne Pepper to taste (if you like your wings hot)

Chef's Tip

Chicken meat also pairs
well with Cherry planks.
Cherry provides a sweeter
flavor than Cedar.


  1. Soak the Cedar Plank in hot water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven or grill to 400°F.
  3. Mix buffalo sauce with melted butter and cayenne pepper.
  4. Toss chicken wings in sauce and place on plank.
  5. Place planks on the grill or in the oven. Cook for 20 minutes, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. (Internal temperature of 165°F)
  6. Have a spray bottle of water handy for flare-ups.
  7. Serve with celery, bleu cheese dressing and enjoy!
