Bacon wrapped chicken wings

this is a natural for grilling because, as we all know, everything taste better wrapped in bacon. So you simply straighten out the chicken wing, wrap it in bacon and cook slowly until the bacon is cooked. Magically, the wing is done perfectly at the same time, like some kind of cosmic convergence. If you'd like to brush them with a little barbecue sauce during the last few minutes or splash a little hot sauce on before eating, I think either would work well. It would be hard to do anything that would hurt this wonderful combination.Source unknown

Ingredients

10 fresh whole chicken wings
10 slices of thinly sliced bacon
finely ground black pepper, as needed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
soak 20 toothpicks in water for at least one hour. With a sharp knife, cut the tips off the chicken wings and save them for stock. Slash the inside of the wing joint to help them cook more evenly but don't cut them all the way through. Strain the wings and wrap each wing with a slice of bacon starting at the top and spiraling to the bottom. Secure with toothpicks. Season the bacon wrapped wings liberally with the pepper.
2
Prepare the grill for cooking over indirect heat. Grill the wings for 30 minutes. Flip and cook for another 30 minutes, until the bacon is crispy and the wings are fully cooked. Remove the wings to a platter and let rest for five minutes. You may serve the wings whole but if you prefer to serve them in individual segments, cut them apart now, taking care to keep the bacon and place. Remove the toothpicks and serve. Makes 10 servings.
