We are looking to create a group in AD that only allows the members of that group to delete print queues.  Any help would be great!  Thanks

Preuming you are talking about shared printer queues from a Server, and you wish people to be able to delete the documents within it?
If this is the case, then create a group within AD, and then go to the shared queue on the Server.
Go to the properties of the queue (printer) and pick the security tab. You will see several groups in there, click Add and add the recently created group - assign that group the Manage Documents ALLOW permission.
This will allow members of that group the ability to delete the documents within that queue.
Repeat for any other queues  that you wish them to manage

If it's just documents that need to be removed - the above will work fine
