Let's get grilling

1 For the BBQ Chicken Thighs:
Fire up Masterbuilt Gravity Series 560 grill and smoker to 275°F. Coat the chicken thighs evenly with the seasoning.
2 Place the chicken in the smoker and cook for 1.5–2 hours or until a thermometer registers 165°F in the thickest part of the thighs. For a grilled option, cook over hot coals at a medium to high heat (roughly 400°F).
3 Grill each side for 5–6 minutes or internal temp reaches 165°F. (I prefer thighs at about 170°F)
4 For the Tomatillo Salsa:
Add ingredients together in blender or food processor, blend until smooth and silky.
5 For the Enchilada Casserole:
Begin by heating oil to about 350°F and shred cheese. Next, quickly dip corn tortillas in oil to soften then place on a plate with a paper towel.
6 In an aluminum half pan, place 5 corn tortillas down covering the surface for the first layer. The next layer will be about 1/2 pound of chicken thighs spread out evenly over corn tortillas.
7 On top of the chicken, evenly distribute 1/2 pound to 1 pound of cheese blend, and then lightly drizzle 1 cup of tomatillo salsa.
8 Repeat this on the following layers.
9 The final layer will be corn tortillas: 1–1½ pounds of cheese blend and 2 cups of tomatillo salsa.
10 Cover with foil and place in BBQ pit for 1.5–2 hours at 275°F or until cheese is melted. Once cheese is melted, uncover and leave on BBQ for 15 minutes.
11 Remove and enjoy!
