I am new to smoking. I have a MES and so far am getting very nice results. I am carefully following the instructions and recipes on this forum and in the book. I did my first Turkey breast. It was small -- about 4 1/2 pounds (just my wife and I). I brined it for 14 hours, Put on a commercial rub and cooked it at 425 for about 5 hours until it was 164. I used Jeff's Apple butter mop spayed ever 45 minutes or so. Mix of 50-50 Pecan and Cherry. The meat was juicy and flavorful. Lots of smoke flavor but the skin was tough and leather. I know the skin in an Electric smoker is an issue but I would have expected more soft than tough and leathery. Am I doing something wrong or is that just the way it is? Thanks in advance.
