Weekend Cook: Chicken Thighs

Chicken Thighs
This was another lazy day cook that turned out better than I had hoped.

Thighs in the Traeger Smoker
I coated 9 bone-in thighs with DP Shakin' The Tree rub and set them in the Traeger pig at 225f for about two hours, until they registered 160f.  I turned them, and let them cook until they reached 171f - about 30 minutes later.  (All cooking temperatures in the smoker vary according to the weather).

How about that?  So pretty, and crispy skin to boot!  Very moist, and with enough leftovers to make sandwiches the next day.
