    Finally got the smoker out that I received for Christmas and decided to smoke a whole chicken and some chicken wings. I brined them both for about 2 hours before I rubbed the rub in. Put the chicken wings on top and full chicken in the bottom most trey. after 4 hours and cooking @ 250 the chicken was good but not as good as the wings in my opinion. the full chicken was very moist but i was hoping the skin would be crispy. The wings game out with crispy skin kind of like what you would get at a BBQ restaurant. What can i do to get the skin crispy on the chicken cook it at a higher tempeture? I am using a smokey hollow propane smoker.
  2. Good morning and a big hello from East Texas. Welcome to the forum, lots of information and great people. You could crank up the heat at the end to get the skin crisp.

  3. Another thing you can do, which I have done quite a few times is when you take your chicken off your smoker put it on your grill to crisp it up.
