Watchin Myron makin these things... then seein the Kid steal his idea... then Thunderdomes thread..... seein a package of thighs at the store.... new MES needs a maiden smoke= Chicken Balls! The episode with Craig Ferguson showed Myron using butter so that's what I did. I deboned these bad boys and sprinkled a little of Reds Rub on em. Put them skin side down as instructed by Myron's video. The MES was sittin straight up on 275 when I slammed them into the smoker. Smoked them with hickory for an hour and pulled them to check the temp. As you can see they were showin 173 internal. I was surprised when I pulled them out of the pan the skin wasn't done at all. I pulled them from the pan and slapped some Baby Rays Chipotle on em and back into the smoker for another 30 minutes. At this point I'm thinkin... man these things got done in a hurry. I'm not wanting to over smoke them so I figure I'll pull them and set them under the broiler to crisp the skin up. When I pulled them from the broiler I thought I'd check the internal temp just to see how bad I had messed up and they were only at 150 internal. I'm thinkin that I got a bad reading before, because of the butter layin in the muffin pan. Anyway... I cut one open and it looked like it needed a little more cookin so I put the pan back in the oven at 325 for another 20 minutes or so.... Here they are out of the oven and ready to plate up. Red cooked up a mess of fried cabbage and onions along with a pan full of Risotto al pesto and we had dinner. I have to say.... these things were awesome. I was disappointed in the skin, thinkin it would be crispy. It wasn't rubbery... very tastee actually, but not crispy. Not sure what I did wrong. Saw some more posts that suggest using margarine. I'm going to do them skin side up next time I think. They couldn't have been any juicier or tastier. I'm am sooooooo happy with this new MES. Stayed on 275 the entire smoke. The one time I opened it, the recovery took about 10 minutes. Thanks for checkin out my QVIEW!
