Use a grill mat to transfer all of your thighs on and off of the grill grates

Tuck any loose pieces of meat underneath the chicken thighs before cooking them on your pellet grill to ensure that no pieces are burned.

If you are using a meat probe, be sure to insert it far into the middle of your chicken thigh to measure internal temperature of the meat and avoid the bone.

SERVE

Let the thighs rest for 10 minutes and serve with your favorite smoked asparagus or other side.
