Traeger Buffalo Wings - Great Lakes Ace Hardware Store Header



Prep Time


Cook Time



  • 4 pounds of chicken wings
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • Traeger Chicken Rub to taste
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce, such as Traeger Original or Frank's RedHot
  • 1/4 cup spicy mustard
  • 6 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing, for dipping


  1. When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 375℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.
  2. While the grill is preheating, dry the chicken wings with a paper towel. Place the wings in a large bowl and sprinkle with the cornstarch, Traeger Chicken Rub, and salt. Toss to coat the wings all over.
  3. Place the chicken wings directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook, turning halfway, until the internal temperature reaches at least 165°F but ideally 175-180°F for the best texture, about 35 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the buffalo sauce: In a small saucepan, combine the hot sauce, mustard, and butter. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking to combine, until the butter is melted and the sauce is warmed through. Cover and keep warm until ready to use.
  5. Transfer the wings to a large bowl. Pour the buffalo sauce over the wings and toss with tongs to coat.
  6. Return the wings to the grill, close the lid, and cook for another 10-15 minutes, until the sauce sets.
  7. Serve the wings with ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping. Enjoy!
