    1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk buttermilk, hot sauce and Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. Add the juice and zest of 1 lemon. Submerge the wings and toss to coat in the buttermilk mixture.
    2. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Drain wings from buttermilk, pat dry with paper towels and discard buttermilk. Toss wings with canola oil, zest of 2 lemons, Lawry’s Garlic Salt, smoked paprika and cracked black pepper. The wings can be grilled right away, or covered and returned to the fridge until needed (up to one day).
    3. Prepare a grill for indirect or medium heat, aiming for 325°F. If you’re using a charcoal grill, you can add some wood chips for additional smoky flavor. Brush the grates with oil. Arrange the wings skin-down on the cooler side of the grill.
    4. Cover grill and let wings cook about 10 minutes. Use tongs to check on the wings, moving any that may be over a hot spot and cooking too rapidly. Cover the grill and cook for another 20 to 30 minutes, until the thickest part of the wing registers at least 165°F on meat thermometer. Halve the 2 zested lemons, brush with oil and grill them with the wings for the last 15 minutes. (To get a little bit of char at the end, you can increase the grill temp or move wings to a hotter part of the grill.)
    5. For the glaze, warm Lawry’s Lemon Pepper Marinade and whisk in the butter until melted. Coat wings with glaze using a silicone basting brush. Flip wings over and apply another coating of glaze. Cook for a minute or two, being careful not to let the wings burn. Transfer wings to a serving platter and squeeze with the charred lemon. Garnish with parsley and serve hot!
