    I love Smoked cured Chicken Thighs so I thought I would try wrapping in turkey bacon.

    I seasoned them and wrapped them in the turkey bacon. I left one unwrapped as I ran out of the bacon.

    The MES window view.


    All done and ready to eat, along with some great stock.

    I smoked at 225' and used hickory. I forgot to add some Mesquite like I always do and could taste a difference, I usually use 1/2, 1/2. I think I may do the mesquite thing tonight to reheat for a bit.

    They were great.

    Thanks for watching!

    Those look great. Thighs are my favorite, but I have never smoked them, aside from when doing a whole chicken. I'm going to have to try these.

  11. Hey Ron. I think I've seen your brine recipe in another post but I think that post is gone now. You mind sharin your mix? I'm doing a whole chix and a bunch of quarters this weekend and thought I might give brining a try this time. Hope you don't mind me asking.

    I love curing over brining any day. Don't mind sharing at all.

    I usually just use the TQ recipe on the bag. 1 TBS per pound and rub and put in zip lock bags for 4-8 hours and rinse then apply what you want. I usually use Toshidas soy and garlic and lemon pepper. Hope this helps.

    So for as brining I use 1 cup of sea salt, some brown sugar 1 cup, and 1 gallon water. There are many other brine recipes here. I just keep mine simple.

    Good luck!
  13. Thanks Ron. I'll be giving this a shot this weekend!
    Happy smokes!
