Strong spices and lime juice make a bold marinade, which can be easily adjusted for heat.
Mix spices in a bowl with lime juice and oil, and wait patiently as your wings soak it up.
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder 1 teaspoon sea salt 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger Juice of 2 limes 3 tablespoons olive oil, more as needed
Mix all of the ingredients for the marinade into a bowl, except the olive oil. Whisk to mix them together, and slowly stream in the olive oil to create an emulsion. Marinate for at least 4 hours.
Place the wings on the grill away from the heat to cook them indirectly. Close the lid and allow them to cook for about 30 minutes undisturbed. Check on the wings and rotate them as needed, making sure they cook evenly.
Once the wings are almost cooked, near about 165°F, move the wings over the coals directly to crisp them. Cook and flip the wings until they are about 180-185°F and crispy on the outside.
1. Remove the wings from the grill and finish with a squeeze of lime. Serve with a side of sour cream and lime juice.
