    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?
  2. 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.
