Chicken thighs are so tasty, and can take a lot of flavor. We’re grilling these hot and fast with a custom rub, and then toss them in an Asian style glaze.

  • Fire up your grill and prepare it for high indirect heat. I use a Vortex in my grill to get high heat in the middle, which allows me to place the chicken in a circle around the hot air. If you don't have one you can place all charcoal to one side in your grill, and the chicken on the other side.
