I’ve come to like the Daytona style wing that Hooter’s offers. It’s a grilled wing with a hot sauce/BBQ sauce glaze. I feel they have more personality than your regular hot wing. They have a little more Sass!
After playing around with some copycat recipes on the web, here’s my take on it. Enjoy!
1 family pack chicken wings – tips and excess fat removed. I didn’t separate drummette from wing because once these are cooked they separate easily on their own. Plus, I didn’t lose them down the grill grate.
Preheat Oven to 400-degrees. In a large bowl, toss chicken wings with olive oil, garlic salt and pepper.
On foil covered cookie sheets, place raised baking rack on each sheet then spread out chicken wings making sure not to crowd them. This will ensure they brown and not steam. Place cookie sheets in oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the skin starts to crisp up. (Have your stove vent on…gets kinda smokey).
Finish chicken wings on your outdoor grill and towards the end of grilling, brush with Daytona sauce several times until wings are nicely coated and sticky. (Sauce recipe follows).

3/4 cup BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s original)
