4poundschicken wings cut into flats and drumettestips discarded

1/4cupfresh oregano roughly chop
1/8cupfresh flat leaf parsley rough chop

Place the cut chicken wings in a gallon sized plastic bag and set aside.
Place the lemon juice, brown sugar, olive oil, garlic, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
Pour marinade over the wings and make sure they are coated, tossing the bag around. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, up to overnight. Try to turn the bag every few hours so the wings marinade evenly, but if you can't, no big deal.
Take the wings out of the marinade and place them in a bowl. Add the remaining marinade to a small saucepan or skillet and bring the marinade to a simmer over medium heat, remove for the heat immediately and set aside.
Preheat the grill to medium heat. Oil the grates and place the wings on the grill. Baste the wings every couple of minutes while the wings cook, especially after turning. Discard marinade and stop basting about half way through.
Continue cooking until the wings reach an internal temperature of at least 165°F degrees but try not to over cook too much, about 20 minutes total. Really try and get a good char on the outside. If you see some of the wings are not charring, but they are almost cooked through, place them over a hotter part of the grill to finish. This is where the most flavor comes from. Serve and enjoy.
The longer you marinate these the better! The flavors get better the longer they sit.
You can make these on a grill pan or on a grill themselves.
You can use other cuts of meat with this marinade, see my notes above.
We do baste this while we grill them which some disagree with, see my tips above on how to make it safer.
You can use whole chicken wings cut up or drummetes which are already cut up drummies and wings.
