1 kg (2 lbs) chicken wings 
50 g (¼ cup) sugar
15 g (1 Tbsp) coarse salt
15 g (2 Tbsp) chili powder
6 g (1 Tbsp) paprika
4 g (1 tsp) garlic powder

Glaze: 60 mL (¼ cup) maple syrup 60 mL (¼ cup) apple cider vinegar Sriracha hot sauce, to taste

  1. Preheat the BBQ to 300 F (150 C) (medium-low).  Rinse the chicken wings and pat dry. 
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir the sugar, salt, and spices to blend well.  Set aside 1 Tbsp (15 mL) of the spice rub and toss the remaining rub onto the chicken wings, coating well.  This can be done up to 2 hours ahead of time and chilled. 
  3. Grill the chicken wings, with the lid down, for an hour, turning once. For the glaze, stir the maple syrup, vinegar and reserved 1 Tbsp (15 mL) of spice rub together, adding Sriracha hot sauce to taste. Brush this over the chicken wings and BBQ them 15 minutes more.

Furnace Financing with SNAP Program

  • "Enviro-Niagara was contracted to install a new heating and air conditioning system in my home. The duct work was very old and not meant for a forced air furnace. That required removing the ceiling downstairs without damaging the adjacent walls, and installing all new ductwork. They replaced the furnace with an efficient modulating furnace and replaced the old air conditioner with a new one. Overall, I am very pleased. Their technicians are very good at what they do.”
