Smoked Buffalo Chicken Dip

I am sure this has been done before but I thought I would share. I basically used this recipe, but I used fresh pulled chicken thighs and cheddar cheese on top.  I smoked about 10 thighs until they were about 185* IT, pulled the chicken, mixed the ingredients in a pan and then back on the egg indirect for about 20-30 minutes.  I have had this out of the oven several times and really like it.  Let me tell you, on the egg it is that much better!   It is also dead simple and will feed a crowd. 

Only problem with this is it is a little greasy.  The grease from the chicken and the liquid rises to the top, and I had to pour some of this off and also use paper towels to remove excess.  I think next time I would pull the chicken and put it on the egg without the cheese, pour off some of the grease/liquid, then add the cheese and put it back on the egg.

Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    ...and if you use celery to dip it is low carb! :)

    I would love to try it with turkey.  Another use for those leftovers!

    I make something similar that has shredded/pulled chicken, cream cheese, ranch dressing, cheddar cheese and franks redhot.  It is awesome, a great dip to put out during a football game.

    I do a similar one.. Never thought about smoking the chicken beforehand though..

    I also don't use cheddar cheese.. Typically cream cheese, chunky bleu cheese dressing, hot sauce and topped with monterrey jack.

    Looks tasty! Would using chicken breasts make any difference in the greasiness?

    Thanks!  That is a great suggestion- I think chicken breasts would cut down on some of the grease. I think that might be a good option.
