    Smoked Chicken Thighs

    Earlier this week I smoked a rack of ribs and didn't get a chance to get any pictures before the family was into them, so this time cooking I took some pictures of the chicken thighs before I took them off the smoker.

    After joining Amazing ribs and reading recipes and techniques I modified my rub, removing the salt portion and boy has that been a positive and also hadn't used brown sugar but I do now. My rub has more heat than others which I read here, used from my time in Texas.

    So I trimmed the excess skins, applied my rub and smoked for an hour at 225 and the last 20 minutes applied my sauce. Came off great and delicious.

    I really enjoy chicken thighs! They seem to be a really underrated piece which is fine with me, then the price stays low!


      I love me some thighs! Good looking stuff right there! Like A-Ron said LOVE the price!

        can't go wrong with a grilled thigh, one of my favourites.


          Here in snow country you can't stand by the smoker/Weber grill monitoring the thighs, wings and legs, you would freeze your appendages off! So I start with a marinade of rub and olive oil. Refrigerate in plastic ziplock bags turning often (3-4 hrs.) up to overnight. Place the thighs in single layers in grill baskets. Place the basket over the coals dampered down with Apple wood chunks for smoke, for 15 minutes turn for an additional 15 minutes. Remove and place the chicken in a slow cooker over chicken broth at medium to low heat for 1.5-5 hrs. Great Blizzard, or Super Bowl lunch. Modify this to your taste very forgiving. Dan

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
