Slow Cooker Drunken Bbq Chicken Wings


  • 1 large package chicken wings cut into flats and drumettes, tips removed
  • 1 bottle beer
  • 2 Tbls bbq seasoning any brand will do
  • Drunken BBQ sauce:
  • 1 1/2 Cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 1/4 Cup ketchup
  • 1/2 Cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup beer I used Bud Light
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper


  • Layer wings in slow cooker set on low heat. Between layers, evenly season with bbq seasoning.
  • When you have layered all the wings, slowly pour in the beer. Let cook for 5 hours.
  • When wings are cooking place all the ingredients for the sauce in a sauce pan.
  • Whisk together so ingredients combine and place over medium heat, stirring until the brown sugar dissolves.
  • Let mixture come to a bowl for 3 minutes and continue to stir. Take sauce off the heat and let cool until ready to baste chicken wings.
  • After the wings have cooked for 5 hours, place on a sheet tray and place in a pre heated 350 degree over. Let cook for 30 minutes, so most of the cooking liquid from the slow cooker evaporates.
  • Turn wings over with a tong, and brush with bbq sauce. Let cook 20 minutes. Take wings out again and flip, basting in more sauce. Let cook an additional 20 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
