Have the in-laws over for dinner, so I'm grilling a bunch of thighs for dinner.

Equal parts Cajun Spice mix, Smoked Paprika, Garlic Herb mix, Onion powder
Coat in EVOO and mix that rub around

I grilled these guys at 300'-325' for an hour on the main cooking area, then moved them to the top rack and tossed in a foil packet of Applewood and let them smoke for two hours at 350'.
I turn them once to let the skin crisp up.
They were pretty delicious, the spiciness of the rub, the grill and the smoke, like a winning a trifecta

Man I love the sight and smell of a grill/smoker fired up and some serious cooking going down.

For a side I made some Dirty Rice.
Granted its a mild version to fit the timid palates joining us tonight, but it still is pretty good.

Dirty Rice
Approx 1C each Onion, Bell pepper and Cellery
3 cloves of garlic minced
1T salt
1# rice
1# chicken livers rolled in cajun spiced flour and fried hard in EVOO, chop into bite size pieces
Sautee veggies in EVOO, add rice and sautee till golden brown
Add 4C chicken broth (or water) and the salt
Bring to boil and lower to a simmer, simmer for 25min or done
