    Grilled Chicken Thighs

    Grilled chicken thighs tonight. Used grill grates upside down. Preheat grill to high, then dropped to low after loading chicken. Seared top side and started to develop a nice crispy skin. Flipped a couple times and finished with mango, smoked jalapeños and garlic. Dalmatian rub before hitting heat. Pulled at 160. Rest for 10 minutes. Oh so yummy. Spicy and sweet all together with a crisp skin. Tender meat with good flavor. Dropped in a couple of apple wood chips at the start of grilling.

    They look scrumptious! Your seasonings sound really interesting.


      Looks good Bocefuss. Do you notice that the apple wood chips make a difference on such a short cook?

        Yes, there was a slight undertone on smoke from the chips.

        Ok, Letting out a secret.... When I BBQ for a crowd (to show off), I will give all the meats a low temp smoke @ 200F for about an hour, depending on thickness. Let me give you some examples....

        Steaks: Doesn't matter the cut, but gauge on thickness. Smoke'em starting at fridge temps for up to an hour (thickness dependent). Ok, 3/4" Choice Sirloin steaks about 30-45 minutes of smoking, then grill on hot grill (thin steak method) to about 140F, pull & rest. Thick steaks, like 1.5", an hour of low smoke and finish on grill.... sometimes you can reverse sear, but unless really thick, you will go to sear after smoke. Here in Texas, you can get 2 or 2.5 inch monster steaks I saw that first hand visiting an HEB grocery store near Ft. Hood. Wow, I've never seen so many thick cut steaks in my life! I was drooling!

        Chicken: Whole, 1/2 or quarters.... A little smoke helps. Low and slow for 30-60 minutes. Then off to a medium-high grill to finish.

        Pork chops: Thick... at least 3/4". 30 minutes of smoke and a quick sear on grill. I've marinaded them first too.... or just a dalmatian rub will work.

        Here in Texas there's a restaurant called, Texas Land & Cattle Company. It's a nice place.... They have a smoked sirloin encrusted in cracked pepper that's to kill for. Served med-rare with mashed tators. Oh my, this was my inspiration about 10 years ago.

        Bottomline: Smoke = flavor!

        Let's talk me, ok

      Bocefuss that's how I like chicken.

      Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

      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’.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

      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.
