Steps

  • 1

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

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    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.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

    180 ˚F / 82 ˚C
