1 teaspoon salt
1 jalapeño pepper, with seeds, finely chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Tabasco sauce, evenly divided
24 chicken wings

In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients and chopped jalapeño to make the spice mixture; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the oil and 1/4 cup of Tabasco, then add in the wings and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle liberally with the spice mixture and toss to distribute spices. Put the whole shebang into a plastic zipper bag, seal, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (up to 24 hours).

Remove the cooked wings from the grill and toss them in a clean bowl with the remaining 1/4 cup of Tabasco and the scallions until evenly coated.
Serve the wings with the Barbecue Dipping Sauce.
