–8 chicken thighs, boneless, skinless - 2 tbsp olive oil -1 tbsp spice rub for chicken
– Preheat the smoker to 225°F. – Drizzle the chicken thighs all over with the olive oil. – Apply the dry rub over the chicken thighs and ensure it covers all parts; top, bottom, and sides.
Once the smoker comes up to temperature, place the chicken thighs directly on the preheated grill.
Close the lid and smoke until the internal temperature of the chicken thighs, measured in the thickest part of the meat, is 165 degrees F. This will take about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Remove the smoked chicken thighs from the grill and place them on a serving tray. Cover with aluminum foil and rest for 5 minutes to allow the juices to reincorporate into the meat.
