    will be brining and smoking at about 250-275. what internal temp should i take the chicken off at to do pulled chicken?

    I do the normal 165* to verify safe and thighs shred easy enough that I don't go any higher on temp like I would pork.  Usually turns out just fine.

    For the thighs, I would go higher than 165, closer to 175 or 180.
