I am updating my repertoire of grill marinades and other recipes for the upcoming Summer season and Patrons of the Pit seem to have a very nice selection of tested grill recipes to pull from.
I will definitely be trying the following recipe they recently posted. These wings are described as “A salty and sweet affair with a touch of garlic.” Sounds like a winner to me! The recipe also calls for the chicken to be smoked with peach wood; and I can just imagine the sweet smoky flavor now! Here’s the recipe if you are as interested as I am.
Sweet Garlic Marinade
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 3 table spoons honey
- 3 table spoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
While the coals mature and the wings marinate, soak the peach wood chips in hot water to increase their burn time. You can also use wine, beer, whiskey, or any flavoring you wish to impart into the food but you want to be sure that you enhance the original flavors of the recipe and not overpower or clash with them.
If you use wood chunks, you will not have to soak; however, many grills and smokers only allow for wood chips to be used. Here are some peach wood chips from Cabelas recommended by Patrons of the Pit.
