Pittocarillo , you need to cook at a higher temp. (300*F to350F) to crisp the skin , or after smoking , throw them on the gill to crisp them up.

 

What kind of Smoker do you have and what kind of Seasonings did you use ?

 

Send Q-view of you Smoker(s).

 

Have fun and . . .

As Oldschool indicated, you need a higher heat to get a crisp skin.   Thighs can handle the high temps.  Also, I have noticed that when I brine chickens I tend to not get as crispy a skin as non brined birds.  Again, thighs can survive not being brined as dark meat doesn't tend to dry out as much as white meat.  I usually pull back the skin on the thighs, apply a rub or seasonings, sprinkle some rub on the skin and smoke them at about 325-350.  Tender and delicious with a crispy skin.
