    Well, I saw someone else did these. Here is my attempt.

    I took some chicken thighs and deboned them. Next I added some lemon pepper and garlic powder and let them firm up in the fridge for about an hour. I decide to stuff them with mozzarella cheese and onion.

    Here I am stuffing and rolling them up.


    Ready to go.


    On the heat.


    Ha-ha, he thinks he is gonna get some. He ended up being good and got a bite.


    Almost done.


    The finished product.


    Well, this sums up how they went over.




    I wasn't overly happy with the amount of smoke, but the flavor was awesome. My wife said we WILL be having these again. Who am I to argue with her.

    Thighs are my favorite. A good twist on them.[​IMG]

    I wish it was my idea. But, I have to be honest. I got the idea from here. The only difference was my wife couldn't find any Tender Quick. I need to work on getting some more smoke on them. I will keep posted on any updates.

    Well they sure did look good Jim.
    What kind of wood did you smoke them over?

    I used apple with a little hickory. The flavor was right, just not enough and no smoke ring. I know the problem, I just have to figure out how to fix it. The chicken fat was dripping on the wood and wouldn't let it smoke. I need to install a drip pan. It's usually not a problem. I just need to do an easy mod.

    Looks great !!! nice qview [​IMG]

    Two complaints though.

    First you didn't offer me an invite before or ask me where to ship any of those tasty looking leftovers to [​IMG]

    Second , 800X in photobucket fits better on my screen and I don't have to scroll to read the text [​IMG]

    Those really do look great , and I'm putting them on my short list for this summer [​IMG]

    1894, first, what leftovers? Second, I'm new to photobucket, I will try to figure it out so the pics are more manageable.


    My next attempt will be the elusive "fatty". Crikey, she's a beauty.
