  • 1 teaspoon celery salt

  • Evenly rub the Dry Spice Rub on the chicken thighs on all sides.
  • Grill the chicken thighs for 5 minutes on high heat, flipping occasionally.

  • ¬†Close the grill cover, and cook for 15 minutes, flipping the thighs occasionally, and brushing with G.Hughes Sugar Free BBQ Sauce, each time you turn the thighs.
  • Remove the thighs from the grill, place on a serving platter, & brush on one last thin coat of G. Hughes Sugar Free BBQ Sauce.
