    @Mattman3969 very nice!  I do thighs often, but 90% of time I ditch the skin after cooking b/c texture (rubber) so I am curious if yours got crisp?

    First off thank you! The thigh skins did crisp up. I did 1/2 skin on 1/2 off(for Mrs 3969). 
    I cook my skin on chicken about 4” above felt at 400-425. I generally don’t temp the thighs.  Usually when the skin is crispy the IT is around 180-190 which is no big deal with thighs. This temp provides the texture I like on thighs.  Kinda hard to overcook a thigh unless you treat them like @Mickey cooks his wings.  Lol.

    Ok tnx - I’ll try “super raised direct” next time and keep them on longer - any other tricks you feel is worthwhile - like air drying in fridge night before and/or dust of corn starch ??

    I’ve done both and had good results.  I rarely plan far enough ahead for the overnight drying.  Even on whole birds I pat dry, rub and cook 400-425 raised and get crispy skin.  Direct vs indirect is personal choice and I use both depending on what kinda meal I’m preparing and if I cooking sides on the same egg as the chicken and don’t want chicken smoke smell on the veggies.
