Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a small bowl, mix the ingredients for the spice rub together. Put the chicken wings in a large bowl and mix with the spice rub and a good amount of seasoning. Spread out in a single layer on a large foil-lined baking tray (or 2 smaller ones). Roast for 45 mins, then remove from the oven and drain off any excess oil.

Heat a gas or charcoal barbecue to high. Mix the ingredients for the hot sauce in a small bowl and brush all over the chicken wings. Cook the wings on direct heat on the barbecue for 3-4 mins each side or heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and cook the wings for 15 mins. Serve with plenty of napkins.
