Chicken Thighs

Cooked some spicy lemon paprika chicken thighs. This was my second cook and the wife thinks I should win an award. They were much tastier than the pic gives them justice.

    Fine job sir!

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 
  • that sounds like a hell of a good flavor combo

    Looking good, Sir. Second cook you say? Are you hooked yet? Have you been bitten by the bug? Keep posting up pics of your cooks for us to enjoy.

  • Oh yeah I am hooked. I haven't been able to cook chicken that moist before. It hasn't been too difficult to hit and hold target temperatures. I expected a lot more trouble but as many videos and forum material I've read it has been pretty relaxed fun. Yeah that was my second cook. Basically all are meals are egg based this week. 70's down here in Alabama so beer and grilling weather.

    This is the recipe for the rub. It was something my wife recommended that sounded good. Cooked at around 415 for 30 minutes and turned once about half way through. Pulled them at 180 degrees.


    2 lbs. organic chicken thighs, skin on
    2 tbsp paprika
    1 tbsp garlic powder
    2 tsps cayenne power ( I did half cayenne and half chili powder prob closer to 3-4 tsps but I don't typical measure)
    2 tsp salt
    1 tsp ground pepper
    Zest and juice of one lemon
    ¼ cup organic olive oil

    Mix everything in a bowl and marinate for about 15-30 min. You can do longer but I didn't see a need and they were full of flavor.
