Picture of Smoked Chicken Thighs
Creating amazing chicken thighs on the smoker that don't dry out.

Step 1: Buying quality meat.

Picture of Buying quality meat.
When you go through all the work smoking food, buy good meat, I get mine from a local butcher.
I am at a smoking competition right now, and I have never smoked chicken before. I need to smoke chicken thighs at this event, so I looked up Instructibles and found this. Looks perfect. Getting ready to try this one.

the trick is to not over smoke the chicken. Some wood has too too strong flavor such as mesquite. Try something more subtle like apple, plum, or as this indestructible uses peach. If you only have the stronger wood only apply the the smoke for the first 20 minutes. Try Turkey as well it smokes just fabulous. good luck

Beautiful! Have you every tried other types of wood in your smoker?

i've used all kinds of wood. A couple tips about wood do not listen to all the hype, to most people each different kind of wood tastes the same. So don't go out and buy expensive wood. Larger pieces of wood works the best like i used on charcoals wood chips just burn up even after soaking. Wood chips work the best if you are using a wood grill and you make a foil pouch.

Egads! Step three is sheer genius!
Seasoning the meat and the skin separately and rewrapping them. Guaranteed tender and to die for flavor. Bravo!
