BBQ Chicken Thighs

BBQ Chicken Thighs Classic BBQ chicken thighs are juicy and tender, infused with wood-fired flavor. Serve at your backyard BBQ with baked beans and chilled beer.



  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

  • Kosher salt

  • Traeger Chicken Rub

  • Freshly ground black pepper


When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 350℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

While the grill is heating, trim any excess fat and skin from the chicken thighs. Season lightly with salt and pepper, then with the Traeger Chicken Rub.
Insert the probe into the thickest part of a chicken thigh, avoiding the bone. Place the chicken thighs directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and cook until the internal temperature reaches 180°F (the chicken will be cooked through at 165°F, but the texture will be better at 180°F), about 35 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
