I want to just smoke chicken thighs .. I did a search and nothing came up .. I want to just smoke them low and slow and was wondering what others had success with ?
 
I’ve used Traeger Chicken rub and smoked them at 225* with hickory until I got an internal temperature of 165...my wife loves thighs
 
I’ve tried a number of Traeger’d chicken thigh recipes over the years but keep coming back to the one I learned at a Traeger Shop Class in Spokane in 2016.

Square ‘em up to make ‘em purty.

Skin side down into a covered foil pan seasoned with Traeger Big Game with a TBL of butter on each at 250* for about 45 minutes.

Onto the grill, skin side up with a dusting of TR Big Game to an IT of maybe 155* then dip in 50/50 mix of BBQ sauce/Apple juice a couple of times to an IT of 175*+.

Pull, let them rest for a bit, take a nice picture and enjoy (and share if you made too many...?)

Well .. this worked out .. I brined them for 5 hours patted them dry, salted the skin and put them in on smoke for 90 minutes. I turned it up to 300 and cooked them for 40 minutes. LOTS of smoky flavor .. that's what I wanted ..
 
It's nice to hear they turned out to your satisfaction, KD. The Ex's shared method sounds like an approach I want to take, soon, too!
