Epic Dry Rub Chicken Wings With Creamy Gorgonzola Dip

 

This dry rub is epic and can be used on chicken pork or even veggies to impart full flavor and a decidedly delicious taste.

 

INGREDIENTS

EPIC DRY RUB:

  • 1/2 Tbsp ancho chile pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 Tbsp light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (less if you're worried about the heat level)
  • 1/2 tsp dried mustard powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried ground thyme

WINGS:

  • 4 lbs chicken wings, thawed completely if using a frozen bag
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil

CREAMY GORGONZOLA SAUCE:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3-6 Tbsp buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 -3 oz crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

INSTRUCTIONS

MAKE DRY RUB AND CHICKEN WINGS:

  • Fire up your Arteflame grill.  
  • Combine all dry rub ingredients in a small mixing bowl, set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, add chicken wings and vegetable oil.  Use a rubber spatula to toss gently to coat.
  • Sprinkle in about half to 2/3 of the dry rub mixture and use your hands to massage it into all of the chicken wings, coating evenly.  Feel free to use all the dry rub, but for a coating like in the photos, 1/2-2/3 of the mixture does just fine.
  • Add chicken wings to the flat cooktop. Cook for ten to fifteen minutes on each side. Until juices are clear when poked with a fork.

MAKE GORGONZOLA SAUCE:

  • To your food processor or blender, add mayo, buttermilk, sour cream, 1.5 oz of the gorgonzola cheese, garlic, lemon juice, pepper and salt.  Process until smooth.  
  • Transfer to serving bowl and stir in remaining gorgonzola cheese.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use

Hi Davis;
Glad to hear you’re enjoying your insert! No, we tried the riser on the weber but the weber just isn’t sturdy enough to handle the riser with the grate on top of it… Better get a One20!

Welcome to the Arteflame family!!!

I am enjoying the 18 inch arteflame I purchased for my 18 classic Weber kettle. I wish you had a riser for the 18 inch . Any plans to make one?
Thanks,
Davis
