  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Servings: 4


  • 1 can (28 oz) BUSH’S® Baked Beans with Honey

For Rub:

  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3/4 tsp dried minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, coarsely ground
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar or Turbinado sugar*
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chile powder

For Chicken Wings:

  • 4 1/2 lbs chicken wing pieces, about 20 wings (wingettes and drumettes)

For Sauce:

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 4 Tbsp smoky barbecue sauce



  1. For Rub: In medium bowl mix together salt, paprika, garlic, black pepper, sugar, red pepper flakes and chipotle chile powder. Set aside.
  2. For Chicken Wings: Rinse wing pieces and dry with paper towel. Place wings on platter and distribute rub mixture evenly on both sides of wings.
  3. Set clean, well-oiled grill to medium heat (400 degrees F). When grill is hot, using tongs, place wings on grill and cook over indirect heat** with grill lid down, 20 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F.
  4. For Sauce: While wings are cooking, in small bowl mix together butter, honey and barbecue sauce. Set aside.
  5. Remove wings from grill using tongs and place in large bowl. Use caution as wings will be hot. Cover wings with sauce and toss to coat evenly.
  6. Using tongs, return wings to grill and cook with grill lid open over direct heat for 2-3 minutes per side until crispy (watch carefully to prevent sauce from burning). Remove wings from grill and place on platter.
  7. Serve with BUSH’S® Baked Beans with Honey.
