What's this?

Classic BBQ chicken thighs are juicy and tender when they're infused with wood-fired flavor. Serve at your backyard BBQ with baked beans and chilled beer.

Ingredients

  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

  • To Taste salt and ground black pepper

  • To Taste Traeger Big Game Rub

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    While grill is heating, trim excess fat and skin from chicken thighs. Season with a light layer of salt and pepper then a layer of Traeger Big Game Rub.
  • 3

    Place chicken thighs on the grill grate and cook for 35 minutes. Check internal temperature, chicken is done at 165℉, but there is enough fat that they will stay moist at an internal temperature of 180℉ and the texture is better.

    Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
