    This is another test run with my latest dry rub, while I try to find if there's anything it doesn't go well with.






    Into the Smoke Vault 24 @ 215-225* w/mesquite:

    Thanks, I'm not sure about times just yet. I've been doing most of my smaller cuts with a cold smoke/sear method on my charcoal kettle, so I'll have to find out. Looks like about 3.5-4.0 hours, though.

    Here were are @ 2.5 hours in, and temps of the larger thighs are running in the low 130* range...I have them folded over fairly snug so they will cook slower:



    Thanks!

    Still in the lower 150* IT range, but the colors are looking much nicer now:

    This was a really good match-up of the mesquite with the thighs...the heavier flavor of the thighs takes on the smoke and rub very well. I will be doing this again...the sooner the better!

    I pulled these about the same time as the chops @ ~6 hours, with several IT's in the low 170* range, so they still had good interior moisture:

    Just out, with their partners for this smoke:


    This was a very nice texture...some chewy skin on the outside and juicy, tender meat inside...here's the smallest one I could find for a sampling treat:


    Thanks everyone!

    i just love the thighs, my favorite piece of chicken!!!

    those really look good, i buy em from costco in the three packs all the time

    but i do love a breast, or a butt but those aren't chicken parts
