- 4 medium Chicken Thighs
- Salt and Pepper To Taste
- Mash blackberries in a bowl with a potato masher, bartending muddler, or another item appropriate for mashing.
- Place blackberry mush into a fine strainer and use a wooden spoon to help push the juice through the strainer
- Once strained, add all ingredients to a pan and mix
- Bring to a simmer
- Simmer and mix for a minimum of 15 minutes
- Remove from heat and set aside
- Preheat grill to 450° degrees Fahrenheit, making sure to have a direct heat zone and indirect heat area
- Place thighs (skin side up) on indirect heat for 10 minutes
- flip and cook skin side down for 10 minutes
- Brush both sides with BBQ and cook on each side over direct heat for 3 minutes
- Use a thermometer to measure the temperature. If thickest part of meat 165° Fahrenheit, remove. If not, keep cooking and regularly check until you hit 165° Fahrenheit.
- Remove and allow to rest for 3-5 minutes
- Add remaining BBQ sauce as a side for each thigh
- - Fresh, ripe blackberries should be deeply colored and plump. They should be free from signs of being crushed, dented, and there should not be any mold. When picking from a bush, they should not be bright red, but a dark full reddish color and easily pulled from the plant. Much like a raspberry.
- Clean your grill - Having a clean grill can help prevent sticking and just makes it a bit nicer.
- Indirect and then Direct Heat - The most of the cooking time should be spent on the indirect heat and then the last several minutes on the direct heat zone.
- Use a thermometer! - Use that meat thermometer to get your temp to safe chicken temperature of 165° degrees Fahrenheit.
