Extra Tips for BBQ Chicken Wings:

 BBQ Chicken Wings Marinating Singapore Styles


a.    If possible, leave the meat to marinate overnight! It’ll really let the flavour sink in and the food will be so much more enjoyable

b.    Prepare your grill by making sure that it is very hot first before putting marinated meat to cook

c.    Continue to spread some more marinate sauce onto the meat while cooking for that extra oomph
