Sometimes I like simple chicken glazed like I made it years ago, except now I don't cook it over direct heat and burn the sauce. :lol:

Seasoned with just salt, pepper, and thyme.

A few years ago someone gave me this glaze so I figured it was about time to use it.
Image

Indirect heat until the meat was done and the skin was nice and crisp, and then the glaze went on both sides.
Image

I was worried that the glaze was going to be too sweet but it was actually pretty good.

I hadn't smoked any chicken for awhile so I got creative with the next batch of thighs, which were seasoned with just salt, pepper, and some butter under the skin. I also let them air-dry in the fridge for about a day.
Image

Next I put a pound of sliced mushrooms in the drip pan and added chicken stock, broth, milk, and some butter.
Image Image

I set up the Weber for indirect grilling and put a nice piece of hickory on each mound of coals.
Image

After the chicken was done I emptied the pan into a pot and reduced it a bit, and then added some cornstarch for the final thickening. When it was ready I stirred in some leftover spaghetti and added the thighs.
Image Image

Everything had a nice hickory flavor and it was a good change of pace for both the chicken and the spaghetti.

That's 2 really great ways to cook thighs, Brad!
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
