How to Make It
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a small saucepan over medium. Add shallot and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Add bourbon and cook, stirring and scraping to loosen any browned bits from the bottom of the saucepan. Stir in cherries, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, and ¾ teaspoon of the salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a blender, and process until smooth, about 15 seconds.
Preheat grill to medium-high (about 450°F). Toss chicken wings with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and ¾ teaspoon salt. Grill, uncovered, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Brush wings evenly with sauce and continue to grill, turning once, until caramelized, about 4 minutes more.
