1. Is there a way to safely put chicken thighs in the Little Chief smoker? I know if I was to cure them, I wouldn't even worry about it. However, I was reading in the directions that came with the LC that you could use iit to smoke flavor foods. The little chief will easily go over 200+, maybe even 225 since its hot outside and iI have a box to keep iit insulated. My plan was to smoke them with maybe a couple pans of chips and finish on the grill. This brings me to question 2
2. The LC I have is over 20 years old, so is the recipe book. Are thses recipes even safe to attempt? I know for canning, the USDA puts out new recommendations all the time and they don't want you to use old recipes.
