Pulled Chicken Sliders


  • 8 Chicken thighs, bone in with skin on
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 1 Tsp garlic powder
  • ½ Tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ Tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 ⅓ Cup BBQ sauce
  • 12 Slider buns
  • 2 Cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • ⅔ Cup cole slaw dressing
  • Bradley Flavor Bisquettes (Apple, Hickory, or Whiskey Oak)


  1. Mix the seasonings and white sugar together in a small bowl. Rub all over the chicken thighs. Place the chicken thighs on a Bradley Smoker rack.
  2. Set the smoker to 250°F using wood bisquettes of choice (Whiskey Oak, Apple or Hickory work great).
  3. Smoke the chicken thighs until they reach an internal temperature of 180°F.
  4. Remove from the smoker and let cool slightly. Peel off the skin and pull the meat off the bone in small thin strips. Place the chicken meat in a bowl and stir with the BBQ sauce until all the meat is coated.
  5. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the cabbage and cole slaw dressing.
  6. Assemble the sliders by spooning some pulled chicken on the bottom of a slider bun and top with cole slaw. Do this with the remaining slider buns.
