When it comes to summer cookouts wings are a common party goer. When I lived in Memphis I fell in love with a certain wing flavor called “Honey Gold”. It wasn’t honey BBQ, it was more like a honey mustard but better which I never did figure out how to make myself but I have seen recipes for Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce that I need to test.

Fast forward a couple years and when I received the bottle of Southern Gold sauce from VooDoo Chef for this event I knew I was making wings with it. While I am still not entirely certain how the sauce and wings were seasoned in Memphis, I did my best to recreate what flavors I could from memory. And my taste buds were happy.

Honey Gold Wings 2

Four years ago: Blueberry Blondie Cheesecake Bars


Serves 4-5


1/2 cup garlic vinaigrette (I used T.Lish)

1/2 cup honey

2 Tbsp sriracha

1-2 cups chicken broth, as needed

2 lb. chicken wings and drums

12 oz. mustard based BBQ sauce (I used VooDoo Chef Southern Gold)


  1. Whisk the vinaigrette, honey, and sriracha together in a large slow cooker. Nestle the chicken in a single layer and pour chicken broth over top to cover (if needed).
  2. Cover and cook on high for 3.5-4 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to broil, and line a baking sheet with foil.
  4. Remove the chicken wings from the slow cooker and arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Broil the chicken until crispy, about 5 to 10 minutes, flipping as needed to get all sides crispy.
  6. Pour the southern gold sauce into a large bowl. Dump the chicken in and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving platter and serve with a sprinkle of parsley, if desired.

Wings are the perfect picnic food and I will bet they were perfect with the sauce that you created.
