Tough Skin

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Last time I smoked a turkey in my electric smoker. The skin got really tough. The meat itself was delicious, but the skin was inedible. Any tips for this?

Finish it in the oven. Most electrics only go to 275° you need 325° or higher for crispy skin. A lot of people smoke till 155° then finish in the oven.

Happy smoken.

That's why I chose a Woody , I can attain those higher temps. , Watt Burners can only get about what you are getting.

 

No shame in the Oven finish... do what you have to... hint , start and continue a 'Log Book'f you Smokes . Include everything you do . You will soon see the Light :icon_idea:

 

Have fun and . . .
