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. Full Recipe after the jump.

For best results use Fully Cooked frozen wings.
