Tried Malcomb's Bacon-wrapped jalapeno-stuffed chicken thighs
« on: October 06, 2019, 04:39:06 PM »
Have been wanting to try this since I saw the video when I was starting with the weber a month or so ago (https://youtu.be/OZvhpkaAcqs - my wife thought so too), and got around to it today.

I didn't have a "chicken pan" like his, so I used an old bread pan (for 2 long loaves) covered in foil, which created two channels for the thighs, and boxed it in with some foil:


Thoughts:
- I think the foil setup worked OK, but if I do this regularly I'll either get the chicken pan (not a popular idea - we have too many kitchen things), or figure out a slightly better setup.

- Prep was pretty easy. 

- I needed longer bacon for a more secure wrap, and bigger thighs too.

- The process itself looks like more in the video than it feels like in real life.

- I did a pretty good job keeping the temps.  I let the coals run up and get it out of their system (25 minutes or so after dumping the coals), and then brought it down to the 300F required temperature and held it reasonably steady.  A bit of fiddling, but not bad at all.

- I probably cooked them a tad too long, but the thighs tasted fine, were juicy, etc.  The cream cheese melted out a bit on them.  I think bigger thighs and a tighter wrap enabled by the longer bacon would have mitigated the cream cheese issue.



Final Verdict:  Tasty!  Probably a B- on execution, but that's just incentive to do it again  ;)

Nice job, those look awesome.  Now I have another cook to add to the list of things to try.

:)  It's fun.  I'm learning stuff and feeding my wife and spawn. 

My wife has pretty much said the same thing in your sig ;)
