First smoke

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Did my first smoke today chicken quarters and breasts. Unfortunately the paint started peeling off my fire box debating exchanging it but I already sealed it with high temp silicon. Smoked for 3 1/2 hours or so spritzing every hour. Meat was juicy with good flavor but for some reason the skin was real tuff. Smoker temp was 225-230 the whole time except the last 30 minutes or so I bumped the temp up to about 250 -275 to crisp the skin. Chicken temp was 175 when I took it off.

Hi, did you season the smoker first? Also what model stick burner do you have?

I have started drying my chicken really really good before smoking and that seems to make the skin crispier. I throw it skin side down right over the coals for a few minutes at the end as well. looks good though. good work!

That usually works for me, even on an electric. Form that pellicle before cooking.
