Ingredients needed to make BBQ Crock Pot Chicken Wings

How to Make BBQ Crock Pot Chicken Wings

  1. Layer the chicken wings in the slow cooker, seasoning each layer with BBQ seasoning.
  2. Slowly pour in the beer and let the wings cook for five hours on low heat or 2-3 hours on high.
  3. While the wings are cooking, prepare the BBQ sauce by combining brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, beer, mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper in a saucepan. Heat the mixture until the brown sugar dissolves and let it cool until ready to baste the chicken wings.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a large sheet tray with foil.
  5. Once the wings have finished slow-cooking, transfer them to the prepared sheet tray and bake for 30 minutes. This allows most of the cooking liquid to evaporate.
  6. Flip the wings and brush them with the BBQ sauce. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the wings are caramelized and sticky.
  7. Serve with any leftover BBQ sauce for dipping.
