I used applewood to smoke, and apple juice and water in the water pan. My smoker gage said it was in the "ideal" range and when I took the temp, it said about 300 degrees. I put the thighs on at 1:10pm. At 2:30pm I checked them, and the internal temp read 178 degrees...they were DONE!
Those look really good. Was thinking of trying some thighs myself. Just did my first smoke this weekend with some wings. They were pretty good and plan on doing them again this weekend for some friends. Keep on smoking my friend.
