You Will Need

The Prep

Let's prep the chicken thighs. Getting yours with the bones and skin doesn't mean you should there's no unwanted excess fat, so trim that off the chicken thighs.

Next, spray those chicken thighs with the spray oil (or rub with regular oil). Make sure you get both sides as well as the inside of the chicken. Then season all sides with pepper, salt, and the Dirty Bird rub.

The Cook

Let chicken set at room temperature. In the meantime, prep and heat your smoker to 275ºF (135ºC), preferably using charcoal and hickory wood for smoke. Remember, the temperature might spike up when you add the wood - if it does, let it settle back down.

Once the heat and blue smoke are rolling, place the chicken thighs on the smoker. Let them cook up to an internal temperature of about 185ºF (85ºC).

The Payoff

When the thighs hit the temperature goal, pull them off the smoker and place on a sheet of tin foil. Brush with your favorite Cherry Habanero BBQ Sauce, and place back on the pit. You are now looking for an internal temp of 195-200ºF (90-93ºC) - once hit, they are finished.

Serve with your favorite sides or dipping sauce, and enjoy!
