You might have done this but it was new to me and it went over great at the table so thought I would share.

Really it is more about presentation but that is part of it. Here are the steps, pretty simple.

 De-Boned chicken thigh

Add your favorite rub, make sure you use a rub you like because the flavor will be all the way through.

Go to the dollar store and get some cheap muffin pans and punch a hole in the bottom for the juice to run out

Form your de-boned thighs in the pan, sprinkle a little rub on top

In a bag and in the fridge over night. Might omit this step but I like to do it

On the smoker at 225

Dump from pan when internal is around 180

Glaze with jalapeno and apricot jelly (1 to 1 mix) and close smoker for 20 mins. Internal temp will be around 185, just right

Enjoy, they go quick
