I started by making a batch of my Coca Cola Brine.
Start with a container or bag large enough to hold the liquid and meat, as well as ice.
Pour in Coca Cola, I did five cans you can change this up with how much chicken you have or the size of the container.
Add your meat to the container.
Mix in all the other brine ingredients
Use a whisk to make sure the brine has been mixed well.
Top with ice or more Coca Cola.
All the thighs to brine for at least four hours.
Now I made these Coca Cola Chicken Thighs on my Pit Boss Pro Series from Lowes.
I decided to add just a couple of hours of smoke to the chicken thighs and I used Apple Pellets to smoke my meat but you could use any flavor.
At about 1:20 I placed them on the Pit boss for a cold smoke and then started grilling 4 hours later.
If you chose not to smoke them they will still turn out just fine!
Serve and enjoy!
