OK, wife went out to get leg quarters, and brought back thighs instead. No big deal. So I have them in the freezer, and hope to smoke them next weekend. I figured no need to brine just thighs. So I will make a batch of Jeff's rib rub and put it on the thighs when they are thawed. I like crispy skin, so figured 350 degrees in hickory, apple and cherry mix to 165 degrees IT or so, then tent in a pan and 170 degree oven for about an hour per an article I read. Does this sound like a good plan, or am I missing something?
