  • 6-8 skin on, bone-in chicken thighs
  • 2 oz. BBQ Bob's Alpha Rub
  • 1 oz. Victory Lane Jalapeno Season All

  2. Set Guru temperature controller to 275°F.
  3. Lightly trim the chicken thighs removing any heavy fat or extra skin.
  4. Use a jaccard to poke holes in the chicken skin. (don't be shy, spend about 20 seconds on each piece).
  5. Season both sides of the thighs with a light dusting of Jalapeno Season All, then a dusting of Alpha Rub.
  6. Place on the second tier grid skin side up for approx. 40 minutes or until the bottoms of the thighs start to turn golden brown.
  7. Flip the chicken skin side down after 40 minutes and cook for another 20-30 minutes or until the internal temperature is 185°F.
  8. Brush with BBQ sauce if you wish and serve.
