I get the boneless skinless chicken thighs from Sam’s club. Like maybe $2/lb. and get about 5 lbs. and coat them with the following rub (this is too much rub for 5 lbs of chicken, but cover it liberally).
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 TBSP chili powder
1 TBSP Paprika
1 TBSP cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 TBSP garlic powder
1 TBSP ground mustard
2 TBSP kosher salt
1 TBSP black pepper
Smoke in smoker at 250 for 90 minutes with apple or your favorite wood.
Take a 9X13 disposable aluminum pan. Place enough chicken broth to cover the bottom of pan about 1/4 inch. Place thighs in aluminum pan and cover with Sparky’s. Foil and return to smoker for additional 90 minutes.
Remove, let rest, and shred. Add sauce as necessary.
Serve as pulled chicken sandwiches with blue cheese on top.
I also use the same thing for chicken legs, and finish on the grill, always gets RAVE reviews.
