A great recipe for great smoked chicken...
- 8 chicken thighs
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 2 pkgs foil wrapped apple wood
Mix spices and herbs well. Season all surfaces of the thighs, including the skin, using all of the herb mixture. Allow the thighs to rest for at least one hour before gas grill smoking.
Place the thighs in the gas grill, and smoke at 225 to 250 degrees. After one hour, turn and rearrange the thighs, and add the other package of wood. Check the temperature of the thighs after two hours…thighs are done at 180 degrees.
Continue gas grill smoking until the thighs are done. It will take from two to five hours, depending on the grill temperature, weather conditions, and size of the thighs.
If you want to be really decadent, brush a little melted butter on the hot smoked chicken thighs right before serving! Enjoy!
