Outrageously great tailgating BBQ wings don’t need to take three days to get ready. I always prefer cooking from scratch using my grill or smoker on the day of the tailgate, but if you are pinched for time, your slow cooker can make you a hero.

This is a pretty good recipe if you have some frozen oven roasted chicken wings in the freezer. Just fire up the crock pot and grab the root beer.

(Makes 12 Wings)
Frozen Cooked Chicken Wings
2 Tablespoons Honey
1/2 Bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ Sauce (linky)*
1/2 Can Barq’s Root Beer (linky)*

1) Put frozen wings in crock pot

2) Pour in root beer

3) Add Honey and BBQ Sauce.

3) Cover Crock Pot and set on HIGH for two hours.
