Smoky BBQ Washington Whiskey Wings

Prep time: 15-20 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes to 1 hour (plus 3-hour minimum marinade)

Yield: 4-6 servings

Total THC/CBD: 50 mg CBD, 60 mg THC

Required equipment: Small saucepan, whisk, tongs, two large mixing bowls, lined baking sheet, cutting board, chef's knife, tabletop fryer

INGREDIENTS:

¼ cup cannabis butter (made in the MB2e MagicalButter Machine)

½ cup Washington whiskey (preferably Woodinville Whiskey Company)

½ cup Doug fir, spruce tip or maple syrup

¼ cup organic blackstrap molasses

¼ cup raw cannabis honey

2 teaspoons dry onion bits

½ teaspoon each granulated onion
and garlic

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, roughly chopped

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 teaspoon sea salt flakes

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1½ tablespoons chipotle adobo

1 teaspoon cornstarch

3 tablespoons catsup

¼ cup dark brown sugar

2-3 pounds chicken wings, wing tips removed and separated at the joint

½ bottle Fairwinds Cannabis CBD Companion (50 mg CBD, 10 mg THC)

¼ bottle Fairwinds Cannabis Sriracha
(50 mg THC)

2 drops True Terpenes eugenol

½ cup green onions, cut on the bias

HOW TO MAKE IT:

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the first 14 ingredients and whisk. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture becomes a syrup.

2. In a mixing bowl, toss the wings with a half-cup of the sauce to coat. For best results, refrigerate the wings overnight, or marinate for 3 hours minimum.

3. Preheat oven to 365 degrees. Arrange wings in a single layer on the foil-lined baking sheet. Roast the wings for 20 to 25 minutes, then turn the wings over and roast another 20 to 25 minutes.

4. Thoroughly mix the remaining reduced sauce with the terpenes, Sriracha and CBD companion. When wings are done, remove from the oven or fryer and transfer to a stainless steel mixing bowl and toss with the wing sauce. Arrange on a serving platter and sprinkle with the bias-cut green onions. Serve hot alongside celery hearts and buttermilk ranch dressing for dipping.
