Cover and let marinate, in the refrigerator, for at least 4 hours, but preferabley 24, turning the wings occasionally.

3. Preheat the grill to medium-high.

4. When ready to cook, drain the chicken wings, reserving the marinade, then thead each wing on a skewer, running the skewer through all three sections to hold it open as widely as possible. Brush the wings on both sides with the remaining oil. Oil the grill grate and arrange the skewers on the hot grate. Grill, turning several times wth tongs, until the thicker wing sections are no longer pink near the bone, 12 to 16 minutes in all.
