Shaker-Style Smoked Chicken Thighs
Based on a recipe of the Shakers, a Quaker splinter group that flourished in the Eastern U.S. in the mid-19th century, this marinade derives its flavor from a hefty jolt of cider vinegar and lots of chopped shallots. Apple-wood chips are our first choice for smoking, but maple and hickory impart great flavor as well.
Make Ahead Tip: Marinate the chicken for up to 3 hours.
