anybody ever inject chicken thighs ?

i am going to smoke some thighs tongiht and its a bit last minute and I have no time to brine .

I am thinking that i could inject them with a bit of something .

thoughts ? and ideas what to inject with ?


  • No, never done that as thighs seem to have enough natural moisture (fat) anyway. Let us know how it turns out.

    No need to inject thighs as they have plenty of fat to keep them moist....
  • I agree with the others... never saw a reason to brine or inject chicken thighs.

    It certainly wouldn't hurt them though. Depends on what flavor you were going for as to what to inject them with.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    awesome guys thanks .

  • Not sure about injecting, but Huli Huli BBQ sauce from Hawaii is great for a quick marinade in a zip lock bag. Might work as an injection. Available direct or from World Market, Amazon. Good stuff on chicken or pork.
