White BBQ Sauce Chicken

My wife and I made some excellent boneless, skinless chicken thighs tonight.

I've heard about white BBQ sauce but I've never tried it until tonight. It's definitely different and good! You Alabama folks might just be on to something :silly:

Here's what we did.

Seasoned boneless thighs with perfect poultry rub from "Smoke and Spice" by Cheryl and Bill Jamison.

Made this clone of the white bbq sauce from Bob Gibson's in AL.

Got my large BGE to about 325 with some Jack Daniels chips added for smoke. Placed the seasoned thighs on the raised grid extender and let them run for 5 minutes. Flipped the thighs and let them go another 5 minutes.

At this point, "dip and flip". That means dip each piece in the sauce mixture...
and then flip again for another 5 minutes.

At 15 minutes, dip and flip one last time, cooking the thighs for 5 more minutes.

At 20 minutes, shut down the top and bottom vents. Let the thighs sit in the egg for 5 more minutes or until done (insert your FDA temp recommendations / juices run clear comment here)

This was a hit with the adults and the kids. Tasted juicy and excellent.

    Looks GREAT Chris. This is an awesome sauce. I add one thing and it's totally up to your likes/dislikes. I add fresh horseradish to taste for a little extra kick and because I like h'radish and it's also white! B)

    Very nice. I think Gibson's seasons and smokes their chicken. The white sauce baptism takes place when they are done. I really like your idea of dunking during cooking.

    I love chicken thighs. I don't think I have ever seen them deboned. I guess a little butchering is required. I have a bottle of Big Bobs Sauce waiting for some thighs. Now I am more motivated to use it. Plus I like Tuckies idea about the horseradish

    Tom if there is a Costco near you they sell the boneless skinless thighs.

    I had two recipes for it both claiming to be authentic, only difference being the horseradish. I love horseradish but tried it without first, only because I didn't know how much combined kick there was going to be between the sauce and rub. I'll definitely trying it with the horseradish today, I've got two whole chickens that I'm spatchcocking.

    Sam's Wholesale has them in packs of 16-18. We are starting to see them more and more in grocers like Kroger and Food City. I've always been a white meat guy, but I love boneless thighs better than boneless breasts now.

    I saw a recipe for dipping and flipping pork tenderloins like that in the National BBQ News a few months back so I thought it would work well here. I'm glad I tried it that way:)
