Norah's world famous chicken thighs

ryanttryantt Posts: 1,246
well tonight Norah and I decided to make some chicken thighs.   Nothing to fancy, rub was a mix of salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and honey powder.  We cooked them at 225-250 on my classic kj until they were around 160.  At this point we pulled them drizzled with honey and  Turbinado sugar and continue to cook until the reached 165.  Rested on the counter tented with foil for about 15 min.   All and all they came out really good, good crispy bite through skin. We serve with Alfredo noodles and a side salad.  
It was a nice to sit out next to the pool and enjoy a family meal.

    Great finish shots right there.  Way to keep nurturing the hobby.

    Look great. Thighs are my favourite part of the bird and you nailed them (well, Norah did!).

    @gmac she's really starting to get comfortable with he vent settings.  She's able to get dialed in pretty quick and knows enough not to fuss with them.  I guess my harping in the background is starting to pay off

  • These looked soooo good, I just had to take a stab at making some tonight for dinner.  I added a few small pieces of cherry for good measure.  They were quite tasty,  but my spice proportions for the rub need to be tweaked a bit.  Please pass my thanks on to Norah for the inspiration!

    @JustOneOfTheGuys she's said she's happy you like her chicken.  We are in Virginia this week for a little r&r. So she's  a little bummed  we did not get to cook for the 4th.
