3 lbs chicken wings
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups your favorite bottled barbecue sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp spicy brown mustard
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco sauce to taste, optional
Rinse wings and pat dry with paper towels. Cut off and discard wing tips. Cut each wing in the joint to make 2 pieces.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the wings; place in a broiler pan and broil 4 to 5-inches from the heat for 15 to 20 minutes to brown. Turn once to brown both sides. Transfer to a crockpot or slow cooker.
Make the sauce by combining the barbecue sauce, honey, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and tabasco if you like a little more heat, together in a small mixing bowl. Pour over the chicken wings in the cooker.
Place lid on cooker and cook on low setting 4 to 5 hours or on high setting 2 1/2 hours.
Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.
