    Sounds like you are smoking at too low a temperature.  Same thing happens to poultry if smoked below about 300F, or 150C.  You can actually go much higher too to get that bite through skin: 325F (165C), 350F (175C).  Give the higher chamber temp a try and see if it solves your issues.

    Yep that's got ya covered! Birds need to be smoked/cooked at higher temps to get the skin to crisp up.
