Grilled Marinated Chicken Thighs

Finished up a great birthday weekend with some grilled marinated chicken thighs.

I picked up a large pack of bone-in chicken thighs at Wegman’s, removed the skin and marinated  for ~5 hours


1 cup Teriyaki Sauce (low sodium)

4 TBS lemon juice

3 TBS Champagne Vinegar 

1 TBS garlic

3 TBS maple syrup

After the 5 hours, the chicken thighs were removed and coated liberally with Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust and Jamaican Firewalk .

Preheated the Kamado Joe (Bessie) to 350 degrees and placed the chicken thighs (bone down) on a raised grate to keep the chicken from getting too hot.

After about 25-30 minutes I coated the chicken with my Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce and grilled until internal meat temp hit 165 degrees.

These chicken thighs were super juicy and flavorful.  They also had a nice char to them which adds to the wood-coal flavor.

I can’t wait to try this recipe again with an even longer marinade time to elevate the flavor profile that much more.

Total cooking time about around 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
