Hot Hot Habanero Wings

Cut wings into thirds, and discard the tips. There should be about 36 pieces.

In a medium saucepan combine barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, Liquid Smoke seasoning, ginger, garlic, habanero peppers, Chile peppers and horseradish. Stir all together, and simmer over low heat for 1 hour.

Put chicken wings in a large glass bowl, and cover with 3/4 of the sauce. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

Heat grill for low heat.

Lightly oil grate. Remove chicken from marinade, and place on grill. Cook over low heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning occasionally.

* WARNING: Wear gloves, and do not let the oil get anywhere near your eyes.
