  1. Prepare the chicken by removing and discarding the skins (or purchase skinless thighs, if available).
  2. Trim any excess fat from the meat and begin to “shape” the thigh by pulling the meat down toward the fattest part of the bone so that it is only attached by the base of the bone. Using a paring or boning knife may be helpful to scrape the meat away from the bone to create the desired shape.
  3. Using a pair of poultry shears, cut off the top joint of the bone if desired.
  4. Coat the meat in Barbecue Booster or Garlic Dust on all sides and shape the meat so that the bone sticks out the top.
  5. Wrap one piece of bacon around each thigh, tucking the ends of the bacon in to keep it in place.
  6. Place chicken on grill over indirect heat and cook for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  7. During the last 10 minutes of grilling, brush on your favorite barbecue sauce and allow the sauce to set in the grill. A great method for this is to heat the BBQ sauce, place in a bowl or cup and dunk the chicken in the sauce by holding onto the bone as a handle. Drip off excess and place back on grill.
