I have never been a fan of thighs. I was breasts and legs. Luckily my wife prefers dark meat so that was never an issue, when we got a rotisserie chicken or a bucket from KFC she ate the legs and thighs and I ate the breasts and wings. That changed a few months ago.
We were at Costco and they had “Pit Smoked Boneless Chicken Thighs” and we talked about getting some. A few days later I came home to a mass of sausages and chicken thighs she did on the grill and DAMN they were good!! Just incredible. Skin was crispy and had a great flavor and smoke on them.
The next time we were are Costco I mentioned getting some more. It turns out those weren’t the ones from Costco we looked at, they were just end of sale markdown ones from the supermarket that had a lemon pepper coating on them. She jacked the lemon pepper up a notch and grilled them. They are a staple on the list now.
