Panko Crusted Chicken Thighs (Thanks M Hoffman!)

Michael Hoffman commented on a lamb rack recipe I posted that he uses a similar method on the grill and that piqued my interest. Not having a lamb rack on hand, I tried it with chicken thighs.
 
I set up the Big Green Egg for indirect grilling with the ceramic plate setter. I filled a foil pan with beer and apple cider vinegar and put it under the grate for a drip pan. I've found if I let the chicken drip directly on to the plate setter it smokes too much and makes the chicken taste a little acrid.
 
I seasoned two thighs with Bolner's Chicken Rub (my default method), to use as a control and in case the panko crusted ones didn't turn out, I'd still have dinner.
 

 
Then I removed the skin from the other two and brushed them with mayo (which looks positively horrible), then coated them with panko, seasoned with the same stuff.
 

 
I sliced some red and yellow potatoes in half and tossed them in Dijon, olive oil, salt & pepper, then skewered them.
 

 
I heated the egg to 375 degrees and am ready to go...
 

 

 
Cooked everything for about an hour without turning the chicken at all or opening the grill. Brushed the "naked" chicken with barbecue sauce and voila. Worked like a charm. Thanks Mr. Hoffman!

    Skewering the potatoes...  What a great idea!  I must copy you.
     
    Your Egg has a nice view.
     
    Chicken looks great.

    I'm glad it worked. But, golly gee, all I said was that I do racks of lamb on my charcoal grill.

    Dr. Roz will be receiving her degree very soon and we are going to do a northern trip through Montana through Big Sky country and then south to AZ where she will receive her diploma.  I hope to spend a couple of days in the great state of Montana.
     
    Your chicken thighs appear fantastic.  Chicken thighs are the favorite of Mamaw Smith and me.

    If you come through Big Sky (near Yellowstone), look me up at Buck's T-4 Lodge.

    By the looks of the food shown above, if you're not the chef, you should be!!!
    Great looking menu!
    Put me down for a Bison Meatloaf Grilled Cheese and one each from the list of Big Sky Beers!

    Thanks, Foodbme! I'm actually one of the owners, and one of my partners is the culinary force. I've never cooked for a living, but have great resources in our kitchen to draw on as I try to work on my home cooking skills.

    I couldn't see those pictures until today. Wow, does that look good. Thanks for posting, I'm going to do both the chicken and the potatoes like that. I'll use something other than the Bolner's, something I already have in the cabinet, but the rest of the method fits the way I work perfectly.
