Chicken Thighs (Hickory Smoked)

First I gotta say, I'm not usually big on chicken, however these thighs were some of the best chicken I have ever eaten.

I'll give a short Step by Step, just to show how I did mine:

I started out with 9 Chick Thighs.

I coated 9 thighs with EVO & a good dose of rub.


The rest went like the following:

1:15PM--------------Fill AMNPS with Hickory Pellets, and light one end.
1:30PM--------------Pre-heat MES 40 to 225˚, and put AMNPS in bottom left.
1:45PM--------------Put all 9 Thighs on one grill rack.
2:00PM--------------Put full rack of Thighs in 2nd position of smoker, and empty rack above it.
3:30PM--------------Change heat to 250˚.
3:30PM--------------Also flipped all thighs over, and lost one to my crummy porch floor (Thigh last seen flying over pet cemetery into woods).102.gif
4:15PM--------------Change heat to 275˚.
4:30PM--------------Put Stuffed Taters (Mrs Bear made) in pan on top rack.
5:00PM--------------Remove All from smoker.

BTW:  I took them all to 165° or better.

Thanks for looking,
Bear





All Thighs rubbed & ready for smoker:

Thanks Bear! I haven't even had breakfast yet............. everything looks great as always. Not exactly sure why but, thighs are my least favorite part of a chicken. Don't think I'd have any difficulty putting away a couple pieces of them there thighs though :drool :biggrin:

Thanks Weev!!

 

Mrs Bear just Bakes the potatoes.

Then cuts them in half.

She scoops the white out, leaving about 1/4" in the skin.

Then she mashes the white part, mixing in a little shredded cheese.

Then she sprinkles little pieces of fried Bacon & some shredded Mozzarella & Cheddar cheese on top.

My tastes are a little strange when it comes to Chicken & Turkey----If I'm just going to eat chicken, thighs are my favorite, but if I'm going to make a Sammy with Mayo or MW, I prefer white meat in the Sammy.

Wow Bear, when you do things, you DO them! And wonderfully!

 

This was so fun to see and all the pieces through the glass!

 

Your whole place must have smelled sensational as well!

 

Great job!

Thank You Much!!

Yeah those taters are good, and they really suck up some awesome smoke flavor with light smoke.

Yup---LOL---That's pretty much the size of it.

 

That's actually a Frog Mat I got before Q-Mats were available.

I was just trying it, and I'm not impressed---Maybe better with fish.

Those look fantastic, Bear!!  Very nice job. One question...how is the skin on the thighs? Does it crisp up at all at the higher temp?  Or if I wanted it crisper, would I need to toss them on a hot grill for a couple of minutes?
