Smoked Chicken Thighs

I bought a small metal smoker for my Weber gas grill from Wm. Sonoma and I thought I'd give it a try this weekend.

I used my grill pan instead of putting the chicken on the grill itself, I find this really helps cook the meat better and prevents burning.

These thighs turned out delicious, what a wonderful flavour. I used Mesquite chips to smoke my thighs; the flavor is very subtle. It added such a delicious flavor, even hubby said, "these are good!" I know they are good when he comments.

I used this recipe to enhance the flavor of the chicken even further, it was perfect. I hope you try this. I can't wait to try other meats, fish and veggies too.

How to Make Smoked Chicken Thighs

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix up the spices and herbs and season the thighs with the mixture. I left this sit over night in the fridge.
  • 2Place the thighs in the gas grill and smoke the at 225-250'F. In about an hour turn the meat over. You will need to replace the wood in the smoker, take all the old stuff out and use new.
  • 3Check the temperature of the thighs after 2 hours. If they are at 180'F they done cooking. If not continue on until they are done. This can take 2-5 hours.
  • 4You can brush some butter over the finished thighs for an added taste treat.
  • 5Enjoy!
