To make the marinade: In a medium bowl, whisk the marinade ingredients.


Trim the thighs of any excess skin and fat. Place in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours, turning occasionally.


Remove the thighs from the bag and discard the marinade. Pat dry with paper towels and grill over Direct Medium heat, skin side down first, until the meat next to the bone is opaque, about 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Serve warm.

So Innocent Ed trots off to the market to buy bone-in chicken pieces and some barbecue sauce. Back home, he ..
