Freek BBQ Grills up Mean Wings in the Netherlands

Hey gang, my good BBQ buddy Freek Haan and his boys the BBQ Pit Boys OSS are queing it up over across the pond. These guys are serious. And you know they have the best beer!!! 

They just BBQ'd up a batch of our Mean Wings, aka 7-Alarm Hot Wings. He substituted the wings for the drumsticks. Same smell. Just like chicken wing drumlettes on steroids.

Make sure you all pay his blog site a visit at Freeks BBQ.

Here is Freek's blog for the Mean Wings...

Mean Drumsticks aka 7-Alarm Hot Drumsticks

This weekend I tried a recipe from my BBQ friend Rueben, from the
island Guam.

As said before Rueben owns some great BBQ blogs: 
BBQ Guam and Guam Firehouse Cook.

Originally this recipe is called "Mean Wings aka 7-Alarm Hot Wings"
this name was created by the Firefighters Pete Perez and Jeff
Soriano, Guam Fire Department.

I was very enthusiastic when I first heared of those mean wings.
When a fireman comes with such a recipe, it must be really good and

I used drumsticks instead of wings, just to give it a try.

I amended Rueben's recipe a bit since Frank's Hot Pepper Sauce 
is not available over here.

Instead I used Sriracha Hot Chilli sauce, also very hot and spicy.

We had another BBQ "meating" with our team the BBQ Pitboys Oss 
this weekend, an excellent oportunity to test Rueben's recipe.

The other team members also made some really good chicken stuff, 
I will write about that another time.

So here it is, you need:

About 1 kilo of chicken drumsticks,

Wing Dust rub:
1 tbsp- Black Pepper
1 tbsp- Cayenne Pepper Powder
1 tbsp- Smoked Paprika Powder
1.5 tbsp- Sea Salt
1 tbsp- Chili Powder
1 tbsp- Onion Powder, Granulated
1 tbsp- Garlic Powder, Granulated

2 tbsp of Wing Dust
1 stick of salted butter melted
½ cup of Sriracha Hot Chilli Sauce

Basting Sauce:
2 tbsp Wing Dust
1 stick of salted butter melted
½ cup of Sriracha Hot Chilli Sauce

A few hours before you start BBQ-ing marinate the drumsticks 
in a large heavy duty zip lock plastic bag or bowl.

After that you can toss them onto the grill, using the indirect BBQ 
method. Close the lit and let them rest for about 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes baste the drumsticks with the basting sauce.
Yet after another 30 minutes baste them again and let rest for about
15 minutes.

Always do a taste test yourself to verify doneness, it's a dirty job but
someone has got to do it!

I amended Rueben's recipe a bit just because I had not all the original
ingredients available.

It must be said, those drumsticks are really hot and mean, I like them
that way!

Next time I will use chicken wings!

Special thanks to Rueben and the Firefighters Pete Perez and Jeff 
Soriano, Guam Fire Department, for supplying the name for this

PS: a reminder to all readers: BBQ is all about the 3 B's of BBQ-
BBQ great food,
BBQ with great friends
and BBQ and drink ICE COLD BEER!!!!
It doesn't get any better than that.
For the mean drumsticks you definitely need a lot of beer!!! 

Well there you have it. Straight from the Netherlands
 and doing it the Freek's way with his BBQ Pit Boys Oss.

Thanks for that guys.

Until next time...
