Crispy BBQ Butter Wings…

I have really been into wings lately. I love your traditional Buffalo Wings; and they are super easy to make. One of my favorite low carb food bloggers, Carolyn Ketchum, posted a great wing recipe last week. After trying those wings, I decided I wanted to create a play off of her recipe. Frankly, I wanted a sweeter wing but without all the traditional gooey sauce. So, here goes…

Crispy BBQ Butter Wings

Serves 4


  • 2 lbs Chicken Wings
  • 1 Tbs Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbs Pork Barrel BBQ Seasoning and Rub (or any MSG & Sugar Free BBQ Seasoning)
  • 2 Tbs Butter
  • 2-3 drops Liquid Smoke or 1/4 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Pork Barrel BBQ Seasoning and Rub (or any MSG & Sugar Free BBQ Seasoning)
  • 2 tsp Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Liquid Sucralose or Preferred Sugar Substitute to taste (I added 8 drops of EZ Sweetz as I wanted sweeter wings)


  1. Dry chicken wings as much as possible. Pat them dry with paper towels, then lay them out over a foil lined, paper towel lined, rimmed pan on an oven safe baking/drying rack (or broiler pan) for at least a good 2 hours to dry. I usually let my wings dry overnight in the fridge. It really helps to make them crispy
  2. Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees
  3. Take a gallon food storage bag and add the Baking Powder and 1 Tbs of BBQ – shake to mix. Then add wings and shake & squeeze to coat
  4. Spray or grease baking/drying rack or broiler pan then arrange wings to roast
  5. Place in oven on bottom rack and bake for 30 minutes
  6. After 30 minutes – raise oven temperature to 425 degrees and move wings to top rack
  7. Roast for 20 minutes
  8. In a small pot over medium heat, cook butter down until it comes to a boil. Once boiling stir until it starts to turn a tan color (about 5 minutes)
  9. Add Liquid Smoke, Garlic & Onion Powder, BBQ Seasoning, ACV, and sweetener
  10. Lower heat to low and whisk all ingredients constantly to blend for another 3 -5 minutes making sure butter doesn’t burn but is brown.
  11. Set aside and remove wings from oven
  12. Let wings cool for 5 minutes
  13. Place wings in a bowl or gallon food storage bag, pour BBQ Butter in, and toss to coat thoroughly
  14. Serve and enjoy
