For electric smokers be sure you crank up the heat to as high as possible (MES 275). Even at that temp your chicken skin may get rubbery. If you have a gas or charcoal grill I recommend finishing the chicken off at high direct heat (last 5-10 minutes). That'll give you crispy skin.

-For the smoke question I am assuming you are using the factory chip loader? Before I got an AMNPS and a smoke generator I would only do twice for shorter smokes. If you aren't getting enough oxygen the smoke can hang out and get stale/not so tasty deposits!

Goo luck!
