Default How did I do with my thighs?

First time smoking chicken today. Used an Ok Joe offset with oak for the smoke.

So I took them to 170 degrees, but there still seemed to be a bit of red in there. The bones were especially red. Is that just because it was smoked? Juices all ran clear so I'm fairly confident I won't kill anyone...

thats what happens when they're in the smoke... Ive had some people freak out the first time they had any bone in chicken off the smoker... not really sure why this happens around the bone, but its normal

Whenever i'm cooking for a large group with chicken I always start off by stating that every piece of chicken has been temped to at least 170 and the pink is reaction having to do with the smoking process and everything is fine. Smaller groups is easier to deal with one or two people asking about it, but 20 people gets tiresome so just let everyone know up front.

EDIT:Those thighs look great!!!

looks good!!! here are some i did this week. i bought 2 performers a year ago from last jan. finally getting around to using one of them. i think i did a pretty good job. that is the bottom, as i was crisping the skin a little. used cherry and beech. it's harder to whittle down those big wood chunks for the performer than it is my ok joe. my brother got up early to eat the two leftovers for breakfast. z

Both them thighs look and I bet taste amazing.. weber kettle is an indirect chicken thigh/leg easy grilling machine with a little practice. Always amazes that chicken is some teams hardest comp category but, I guess that has more to do with the judging and a reason I have no interest in ever doing a sanctioned KCBS comp. To much tedious and stressful work to try and please their taste buds to how they belive it should taste and look.
