Sprinkle both sides with BBQ spice. Place in your smoker, skin side down, for 45 minutes. At the 45 minute mark, brush with Cheater BBQ sauce. Wait 15 minutes, turn and brush the top. Smoke another 15 minutes for a total smoking time of about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Thighs may require an additional 15 minutes depending on their size.
