I cook competetion BBQ on 2 backwoods smokers and occasionally use a chargriller akorn for back up.  I am having trouble with chicken skin.  It is either too mushy from the seasonings or the skin cracks from raising the temp in the last 20 minutes.  I have used Jeff's Rib rub and have won with it.  I really like it. I enjoy the newsletter.  It is always entertaining.  If anyone has any suggestions on the chicken skin, let me know.

Welcome bshagerton: Chicken skin is a problem for me too.  Just a question, do you use any citrus juice or vinegar on your bird?  The acid in them will make the skin crispy but very fragile.  Don't know if this helps, but I figured it might apply.

I think by trying to crisp up the skin, I am getting it too hot at the end of the cooking time.

What temps to start, and then to finish.  I don't use apple juice, so I don't know how it would affect things, maybe someone else does.
