Ingredients

  • 12-18 Chicken thighs

  • 8 limes

  • 1 bundle of cilantro

  • 3 cloves of garlic

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • 2 shallots

  • Olive oil

  • 1 cup of water

  • Caribeque Lemon Garlic rub

Directions

  • Marinade Preperation
  • Grab a large bowl to prepare the marinade in.
  • In your bowl juice all 8 limes.
  • Add 4-5 juiced limes (save the rest for the grill or smoker).
  • Rough chop the cilantro (reserve some for garnish later if you want to be all fancy).
  • Mince 2-3 cloves of garlic.
  • Add a good drizzle of olive oil.
  • Chop 2 shallots.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add 1 cup of water.
  • Stir everything up in the bowl to make sure it is well mixed.
  • If you bowl is large enough just add the chicken to the bowl if not transfer chicken and marinade to a large bowl or large ziplock backs.
  • Let marinate for at least 4 hours (longer is better, I usually let it go over night).
  • Smoking the Chicken
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on the grill grates
  • OPTIONAL (but preferred): Give the chicken a good dusting of Caribeque Lemon Garlic Rub
  • Smoke at 180-225 until the chicken reaches 165-170 degrees
  • OPTIONAL: remove chicken from smoker when internal temp is about 150 and place on a hot grill to finish. Enjoy!
