You will be fine at 235*. I smoke chicken at 275*-300* because it doesn't really need to go low and slow and it helps get the skin crispier but I wouldn't crank it that high with pork in there. You can always put the chicken in your oven under the broiler for a few minutes after it is done to crisp up the skin too.
