I am so excited that it is the grilling season again!! The weather this week in Washington has been perfect for grilling. Wings are a huge favorite of my whole family, and it turns out it’s also a huge favorite of our neighbors! My girls have fallen in love with hosting dinner get-togethers with their friends. We combined some of our favorites, Coke and wings on the grill, for their first summertime get-together.
Coke Grilled BBQ Wings Recipe Ingredients:
- Chicken Wings-We used a party pack with wings and drummettes.
- BBQ Sauce– You can use any bbq sauce. I used Honey and HIckory Smoke for our wings.
- Soy Sauce
How To Make Coke Grilled BBQ Wings
Put wings in a bowl or a bag, then add soy sauce and a can of Coke to the wings.
Place the bag or bowl in the fridge so the wings can marinate for a couple of hours. I marinated mine for about 3 hours.
When ready to cook, grab a Coke and head to the grill to get started! Spray your grill with nonstick spray and allow it to heat up.
Once your grill is ready, use tongs to pull the wings out of the marinade and place them on the grill.
Allow your wings to cook, and flip them over as needed.
Once the wings are mostly cooked, use a pastry brush to coat on the bbq sauce. Allow them to finish cooking, I flip mine and coat both sides with bbq sauce.
Watch how they cook so the sauce doesn’t burn and be sure to use a food thermometer to make sure the food is cooked properly. (Chicken needs to be cooked to 165 degrees.)
Serve with a cold Coke!!!

Wow! Now that looks like a yummy meal. I am trying to eat as clean as I can so am staying away from pop but those bbq wings sure look tasty! I will share this with my best friend as she loves coke and bbq wings! Awesome post and great photos! Thanks for sharing!!
In Korea, chicken and beer when together in a meal is a huge trend for foodies. These are great comfort food we enjoy anytime. Coke bbq wings really intrigues me. How would that taste like? That’s such a creative recipe we have yet to try.

Coke really is my downfall, I drink far too much of the stuff but it’s SO refreshing and tasty isn’t it? I would love a BBQ right now, if only the sun would shine. I need to pick up some cans of Coke in the shop tomorrow, you’ve given me a craving for it now 🙂

This is an awesome way to use Coke. I love the whole share a coke campaign, it is fun and brings people together. I will be trying your recipe tomorrow at dinner, I have everything needed. My kids are going to love this!

These look absolutely delicious and this recipe has been on my list to do! I wish I could come through the screen right now and try them
I’d love to share a Coke with my sister. I moved to Denmark 5 years ago and have only been back to the States once and it’s been over 4 years since I last saw her. It’s hard to ‘go home’ when I’ve got Europe at my doorstep!
As for my favorite grilling food, I’m a vegetarian and have never met a grilled vegetable I didn’t like, but my newest discovery is halloumi, a mediterranean cheese that can be grilled. It’s delicious!
I would have never thought about using Coke as a marinating ingredient for chicken wings. I usually just slather mine in the the hottest hot sauce I can find and cook them up. Your recipe sounds even better and might get me off the coach and in front of the grill earlier than I expected this summer. Luckily, I have a Sam’s Club membership so I can stock up on the Coke since I plan to make this several times this summer!
My mother always makes a Coke glazed ham at Thanksgiving, but for some reason I have never thought about the flavor transferring well to chicken. I think I’m going to have to force my hubs to make a batch of these soon. I’ll have to renew my Sam’s membership first though so we will have plenty of Coke!
What a fun recipe! I love sweet ingredients mixed with savory so I bet this would be right up our alley. And it’s easy enough that the kids could help make it too. Bonus!

i have seeing a lot of grilling posts lately + it is making me miss eating grilled food. I do not have my own griller so we only get to enjoy grilled stuff when we dine out. i think it is about time i get me a griller and grill as much as i can.
i did not know Coke can be used for cooking!
These look amazing- I love wings so much but I never really tried making them. I cannot wait to give these a shot!
This looks amazing. My hubs is a coca cola lover, so I cant wait to try it!
What a unique and lish-looking recipe! I don’t usually buy Coke, but this might be a good reason to! Thanks!

These look sooooo good! And just as I am getting ready to pull the grill out, looks like I have a new recipe to try!
