Perfect Outdoor Oven Chicken Wings

The Easy Method That Changes Everything

We own an Ooni grill at home and besides the ability to make delicious, well-done pizza, I’ve come to find that you can make some incredibly good chicken wings in there too.  They are quick to cook (4-5 minutes), end up crispy with a little char and cause nowhere near the mess they would if you were to cook them in the kitchen.  Cook in an Ooni grill or any outdoor oven with overhead flames.


2 dozen (about 2 lbs) chicken wings
2/3 cup vegetable oil
Pinch of Kosher salt

2 cups of your favorite wing sauce

Celery and carrots: cut into finger-length pieces (optional)
Blue cheese dressing (optional)


1-Place a cast-iron skillet in the oven and turn it to its medium setting. Preheat for 15 minutes (aim for 900°F)

2- Cut the wings and drumsticks at the joints. Dry the wings thoroughly.

3- In a large bowl, toss the wings with vegetable oil until completely coated then season them with salt.

4- Using a protective oven mitt, remove the skillet and set it on a heat-resistant surface.

5- Use tongs to place the wings on the skillet, laying them down so they splatter away from you. Place them about an inch apart then return the skillet so it’s just inside the oven.

6- Cook for 2 minutes then carefully remove the skillet to a heat-resistant surface and turn each wing over, swapping the front and back wings.

7- Cook for another 2 minutes then check the temperature of the meat (not the bone) with a digital thermometer. Once they’ve reached 165°F remove and toss in a large bowl with at least 1/3 cup of wing sauce.

8- For some extra flavor, return them to the oven for 1-2 minutes after saucing.  Remove, sauce again and serve (with optional celery/carrots/blue cheese dressing.

9-Lastly, ask yourself why you haven’t invited me over to try a wing.
