Score big with this chicken. These wings and thighs are generously seasoned with our chicken rub giving it some citrus spice and then smoked on sweet cherry wood for some deep dark meat flavor.

Ingredients

8-10 CHICKEN THIGHS

1/2 CUP TRAEGER CHICKEN RUB

20-30 CHICKEN WINGS

1/2 CUP TRAEGER CHICKEN RUB

Preparation

When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Place thighs and wings in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and Traeger Chicken rub and mix well. Cover bowl and refrigerate for 3 to 8 hours.

Place chicken directly on the grill grate and cook for 45 minutes. Check the internal temperature of the chicken, it is considered done at 165℉ however, a finished temperature of 175 to 180℉results in a better texture in dark meat.

Once the finished temperature is reached, remove chicken from the grill and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
