what IT for thighs to do pulled chicken?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

will be brining and smoking at about 250-275. what internal temp should i take the chicken off at to do pulled chicken?

I do the normal 165* to verify safe and thighs shred easy enough that I don't go any higher on temp like I would pork.  Usually turns out just fine.

For the thighs, I would go higher than 165, closer to 175 or 180.
