Garlic Honey Chicken Thighs

Garlic Honey Chicken Thighs were juicy, tender and sticky sweet with a hint of zing from red pepper flakes. They were easy, quick and with a fun glaze that added tons of flavor. A “Kiss of SmokeNorthwest Apple made it extra special. This is great recipe for friends, camping and tailgating.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Cooking Directions: Garlic Honey Chicken Thighs

For the glaze simmer all ingredients in medium sauce pan for 5 minutes.

Cook’s Note: To make measuring honey easier spray measurer with cooking spray.

We brushed the chicken with Patti’s Garlic Honey glaze and placed them directly onto our preheated Grill Grates (375 degrees 190c). I did not flip these but just let sit in the smoke.

Brush with more glaze the last 30 minutes of your cook. We did them for 65 minutes until we reached an internal temperature of 190 degrees (88c), U.S.D.A. safe for chicken is 165 degrees (74c) but I think the meat flakes apart nicer when cooked to 190 degrees (88c).

Keep in mind that the chicken will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

Cooking In the Oven:

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time. It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels.

We do 65 minutes here at 375 degrees (190c).

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What you Love,
Ken & Patti
