I've never cooked chicken thighs before. Found some at the local Schnucks for .79 a lb. Do you cook them direct/indirect and low & slow? Can someone give me some info. Thanks.

    I like to do thighs at about 300 on a raised grid. they take about 1:30 but are to die for. They are plenty moist with a bit of crunch skin to them.[p]My personal preference is Raging River from but the seasoning choices are endless. Enjoy and let us know how they turn out.[p]Banker John

  • Banker John,
    Thanks for the info. Sounds like the way to go. I've been trying to post pictures of my last 2 or 3 cooks but can't seem to get the hang of it. I'm using the NW insturctions but doesn't want to work. Will let you know how the thighs come out.

    BajaTom,I followed Nature Boys' Tangy Chicken thigh recipe and it's a keeper! Very good flavor and very moist meat! That was the first time I did thighs and my family want them again.[p]

    best of luck on the thighs and DO let us know how they turn out. If you have a thermapen, pull them at 176 and wrap in foil for 10 minutes before serving. The skin will moisten up a bit, but the flavors will be fantaxtic, trust me![p]Banker John
