Smoked a whole chicken the other day and the skin came out nasty chewie... the meat was great tasting, just had to pull all the skin off.
Cooking temp with 275
Half and orange stuffed inside, light garlic rub on the outside
I pulled it from the MES with an IT of 165, seemed slightly under cooked.
Skin was supper chewy and nasty tasting, you could not bite through it.
My chicken thighs turned out great, skin and all. Whole chicken, not so.
What do I need to do differently?
