Some smokers are difficult or impossible to get to high temps.
Many people like to flash cook their birds on a hot grill at the end to crisp up the skin. Works best with a really hot indirect heat and the lid on.
A hot oven would do the trick as well.
Good luck and good smoking.
Thanks again for the reply.
I think my smoker is going to be one of those that is impossible to get a high temp on. I also realize now after only 1 smoke that I should have bought this one. The problem I found was refulling the FB. I have to slide the charcoal box out to refill it. It's a pain and If I knew then what I know now, I would have bought something where I can lift a lid then drop coals into it without distrubing the coal box. (I don't know the technical name for the where the coals go. Someone please correct me.
