Been craving some chicken so last night was the night!!

Started by taking some chicken thighs and removed the bone. Added 1/2 of a sweet mini pepper onto each thigh.

Added a little Rub for Grub seasoning, along with some mexican shredded cheese.

Rolled up and secured with toothpicks and added some more Rub for Grub Seasoning.

Decided to add a slice of bacon to the chicken to help hold in the cheese... any excuse to add bacon!!!

Added maple pellets to the lump and onto the BGE cooking indirect at 350. Also added a hash-brown casserole.

Towards the end of the cook I added a little Plowboys Heat 180 sauce to glaze.

Inside shot. Next time I will either use high-temp cheese or a cheese stick. The cheese taste was there but you couldn't really see it. Also the pepper was great and I will add more in each thigh next time.

Looks great. Nice job! Try Queso Fresco cheese. It will not melt and run out.

That looks and sounds delicious. Reminds me of the venison poppers I make but chicken thighs sounds like a great twist.

I wonder if cream cheese would work? I grill mine at a fairly high heat and use cream cheese and really doesn't have time to run out.

How long did you cook them?

I will try that... I have some in the fridge now.

I didn't really pay attention, had a couple of beers and made sure the internal temp was at least 165. :thumb:

Looks good!

very nice! I have done similar but used cream cheese instead and it stayed in pretty well...

That looks like a winner. I might use a chile instead of the sweet pepper.

Man that looks real good!

great concept, the bacon wrap was a nice touch to hold it all together
