Chicken Thighs – Modified ECB Smoker

Unless my memory is failing me (which, by the way, it totally is and I blame beer) then this is the first thing I smoked with my newly modified ECB.  I remember finishing up the modifications on my smoker  and then that night two things happened.  First, my sister-in-law went into labor at our house.  Second (and completely unrelated to the first) I developed a sickness that kept me throwing up for the next 3 days.  So, it wasn't until a week or so later that I actually go to use my newly modded ECB.

I must have been pressed for time, though, because it looks like I just made chicken thighs.  And, these little babies will be done in 2-3 hours tops.

Also, looking at the picture, it looks like I still hadn't solved the problem of chicken skin.  So, if I recall correctly, these were freaking delicious, but the skin was pretty much inedible.  Remember, if you want crispy skin you need smoker temps closer to 350F or you have to finish it in the grill or in the oven.

Anyway, here's the pic.
