Gonna be competing in the "Pigfest" in tallahassee next weekend, so I gave my chicken one last try!

Deboned the thighs, and trimmed



seasoned with some rub, then wrapped in the skin and into the smoker,

In the comp the skin will be trimmed nice and neat.



smoked @ 250º for 2hrs

sauced for the last 30mins

Just what the judges like, Bite through skin!



Thanks for checkin' out my chicken,

We'll see how it does next weekend!

Looks awesome. Thighs are my favorite part of the chicken. Sooooo much flavor.

I'm east of crestview about 10 miles or so, I use crestview as a reference point so people can find it on the map!

I've often wondered where your located in crestview,I pass by a few homes with smokers in the yard and often wonder if it's you.

Raptor, that's some fine looking chicken thigh meat, looks comp ready to me, all you need is some of that funny looking green stuff to go around it and your ready to go!  My grandmother taught me that the thigh was the best part of the chicken, she convinced me and I still love them and yours are making me hungry right now.  Good luck in the Comp.!
