Split chicken thighs

Not sure if anyone has seen these but they are split chicken thighs. They are awesome for grilling. I know you're probably saying "That's just a regular thigh split right down the middle." But there's something about em that makes them extremely tasty.Not sure if its the exposed bone marrow. I haven't really seen them start to sell them much until several months ago around here. Got them at the local HEB. Of course here is a little pron. Did half with Tony's and half with Yardbird. Really loving that yardbird and I'm glad I bought it. Cooked with regular K and a small mesquite chunk. As far as I know its a south texas thing but I may be wrong. They might be in corpus sapo if you wanna check out HEB. That's where I've found them and the mexican meat markets.

Looks good. Danny Gaulden has a great stuffed thigh recipe inspired by a restaurant called "Doc Hollidays" or so the rumor goes. I will post it in the recipe section if it aint already there.

BW, you talking about Cuzin Homer's chicken delights?


that's a new cut on me. You like it better because you've doubled
the surface area that's picking up the lovely smoke/grill flavor.

The Cuz is an old Texan who I thought you might know. His recipe
for bacon wrapped boneless skinless thighs with a slice of jap in the middle was one of my first great discoveries when I first started searching the net for grilling/smoking recipes back in the late 50's.

That is new to me. I have never seen anything like that. Here at the Mexican Market I can get chicken sliced in what is almost what I would call a sheet but nothing like that. Great pictures. Looks like a job well done.

In case no one has heard of Plowboys Yardbird Rub it is awesome stuff and probably one of the most popular rubs everyone on another forum i visit uses for chicken and pork. Sapo you'll love it since I've watched your videos and I know you like to try new rubs. Both of these are great places to order it. It is a competition winning rub over and over again. The other rub is Tony Chachere's which you can get at HEB and it good on absolutely everything.
