    While my chicken thighs are defrosting in the fridge, I'm preparing my brine.
    1 gal. water
    3/4 cup kosher salt
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon Chimayo mild chile powder
    1 tablespoon sweet smoked Spanish paprika
    1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
    1/2 tablespoon lemon peel

    I plan to marinade the thighs for 1 1/2 hrs. in the fridge and then put them to smoke at 275 for 1 1/2 hrs. using mesquite wood.

    I'll be taking Q Views as I go along. Wish me well...

    Good luck with your smoke. I'll be looking for your Q-view and progress reports. Got a pork butt marinating in pineapple juice myself. It will find the smoker Friday.
