Day off smoked pulled chicken

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by mrchuckierock, Jan 13, 2014.

  1. Had a nice day off today so I decided to smoke chicken thighs to make some pulled chicken. So I whipped up a batch of Chef JJ`s Bubba Chicken Rub, rubbed down the chicken, smoked at 275*-300* for 1.5 hours over apple and mesquite wood. The mesquite adds nice flavor and the apple mellows it out so it wasnt too strong . I shredded up the chicken and tossed it with some homemade KC style BBQ sauce.

    rubbed up ready for the smoke

    halfway through, looking good

    The taco with my buddy`s homemade apple slaw

    the shredded chicken

    it was so moist and delicious. the sweetness of the rub complimented the slight kick i added into the sauce. Thanks for checking out my post!

    The chicken pulled after 1.5 hours cook time? Wow why did I spend my while day doing pork? Haha just kidding, looks great though, the slaw looks awesome too, any chance your buddy would be willing to share the recipe?

    Looks great! Nice job!
  4. Thanks! i cooked it fast and me, I would much rather pull pork after having to pull 12 of these thighs 1 by 1 haha :grilling_smilie:

    Ask and you shall receive! The slaw recipe is just 4 cups of shredded cabbage, 2-3 carrots sliced thin and then cut into bit size peices, 1 jullienned green apple, half a red onion, equal parts olive oil and cider vinegar (enough to coat the veggies and apple) and salt and pepper to taste. Combine everything into a large bowl and toss until well mixed
