Chorizo Stuffed Chicken Wings Recipe
- 4 whole chicken wings
- Duck Fat Cooking Spray
- Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ridge Carne Asada Seasoning
For the stuffing:
- 1 lb Mexican chorizo
- 1 cup (2 oz) Mexican quesadilla melting cheese, grated
- 1/2 cup white onion, minced
- 1/4 cup cilantro stems, minced
For the sauce:
- 1/2 cup Firebug Grillin’ Sauce Mild BBQ Sauce
- 2 tbsp chipotles in adobo
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Debone the wings, starting at the large end of the drumette and working down to the flat.
Combine the ingredients for the stuffing and mix well.
Stuff the chorizo mixture into the deboned chicken wings. Toothpick closed the ends of the stuffed wings, and any holes in the skin.
Add a binder to the surface of the wings. Duck Fat Cooking Spray, oil or hot sauce will work. Season the wings with the Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ridge Carne Asada Seasoning.
Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Grill to 425ºF set up for direct grilling with GrillGrates in place over the fire box.
Place the wings on the GrillGrates over direct flame. Close the lid and let cook until browned. Flip and brown the other sides. Move to indirect heat to finish, if necessary.

While the wings are cooking, combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small food processor. Process until smooth.
When the wings reach an internal temperature of 160ºF, brush the sauce onto the surface of the wings. Close the lid and let the sauce set up for a few minutes. Remove from the grill.
Serve the Chorizo Stuff Chicken Wings with extra sauce on the side, for dipping.
