Aloha Barbecue Chicken Wings are sweet and spicy chicken wings sweetened with pineapple preserves to bring a taste of Hawaii to your grill.
I have lived in Texas all my life and one of my all-time favorite foods is Texas barbecue. In Central Texas there is a local chain of barbecue restaurants that has an amazing barbecue sauce. It is spicy and sweet but not with brown sugar. I think they add pineapple juice to the sauce. That gave me the idea for the Aloha sauce for these chicken wings!
Not only do I love the sauce but I also love the smoky flavor of grilled foods. Living in Texas we pretty much grill year-round, including in winter. While we may not get blizzards down here, the temperatures can get down in the 30’s in the evenings. However, that has not stopped us from grilling. With the big game this next weekend, we must have wings. It is a requirement in our house for all game day meals. So no matter the temps, we will be grilling.
I discovered that Kraft has a name for those of us who grill year-round…..Evergrillers. Kraft has even created a Grill ‘N’ Flip Mitt to allow you to grill all year round. It is made from fire-resistant material and protects your hands from both the heat of the grill and the cold weather outside. They were designed to inspire all Evergrillers to create a new winter grilling tradition.
Kraft created these over-the-top grilling innovations to celebrate the launch of their newly revamped line of Kraft Barbecue Sauces that feature high-quality ingredients like tomatoes, sweet molasses, cider vinegar and cane sugar, with NO high fructose corn syrup!
The new Kraft Barbecue Sauce is available in eight varieties with smoky, sweet and spicy flavors: Original, Hickory Smoke, Sweet Honey, Mesquite Smoke, Sweet Brown Sugar, Sweet & Spicy, Spicy Honey, and Thick & Spicy.
From Jan 19 to Jan 30, you can enter to win an Evergriller Grill ‘N’ Flip Mitt and a year’s supply of Kraft Barbecue Sauce by visiting GrillinFools.com. The winner will be selected randomly at the close of the giveaway.
With the Kraft Barbecue sauce, you can create these amazing Aloha Barbecue Chicken Wings just by combining the Kraft Barbecue Sauce with pineapple preserves and hot sauce. Get the details in the recipe below.

As another central Texas evergriller, this has to be on my list to make soon!! Sounds incredible!
Marion@Life Tastes Good says
That mitt is a great idea! We live in FL, so the cooler months are when we prefer to grill anyway. I can see how that mitt would be a handy tool. The wings look great!!

What a great glove! OMG…I NEEEED that glove (and I’ll take the hand along with it!) to grill for me here in NE Ohio. I’ve tried grilling when it’s snowing and the temps are below freezing and it is NOT a comfortable or easy task. That glove would make us Ohioans more likely to be evergrillers too!
LOL! Renee! Yes. You would definitely need that grill mitt in Ohio!
Lisa Huff says
Wow, these look delish! Perfect for the Super Bowl!
Thank you Lisa! They were delish!
I would definitely say we would need that mitt in NY also. lol However, Grumpy would have to be the one wearing it because I am a wimp and hate going out in the cold to do anything! The wings look delicious!

These chicken wings are making me hungry! Fire up the grill! Love the idea of adding the pineapple preserves. Thanks for posting this recipe.
We grill all year long too. Love that there is hardly any clean up. The new Kraft sauces taste fabulous and I can’t wait to try these wings!
I agree it is hardly any clean up. I love the new Kraft sauces too. We ate these wings the next day as well! They are so good!
Kathy Clark says
Those chicken wings and drumettes look absolutely delicious – and they were! Thanks for letting us help you consume them, Michele. They had a really great barbeque flavor with the pineapple preserves added to the Kraft BBQ sauce.
I do love chicken wings!!! Sounds delish!
We grill all year long too. Actually my husband does the grilling so I am always happy for a recipe that involves grilling. Love your idea of adding pineapple preserves to the BBQ sauce.
Thank you Christie!
Sandra Shaffer says
We can grill pretty much year round here in CA too! Love the pineapple preserves you added to the BBQ sauce. I’m going to look for it so I can make this recipe!
