Smoked Chicken w/ Crispy Skin
When it comes to smoking chicken, getting that crispy skin can be a bit tricky. The usual low and slow cooking method in a smoker doesn't quite do the job, and you end up with rubbery skin. But fear not! I've got some friendly tips to help you out. First, crank up the heat a bit and aim for temperatures between 300°F and 350°F. This will allow the fat in the skin to render and give you that delightful crispiness. Another thing to keep in mind is to skip the spritzing. While it may work wonders for other meats, spritzing the chicken will prevent the skin from drying out. Instead, go for a dry rub to add flavor. Oh, and remember not to wrap the chicken! Wrapping it up will only make the skin soft and mushy, and we definitely don't want that. Cooking chicken in a smoker requires some special techniques, so it's not exactly like cooking other meats. But with these adjustments, you'll be rewarded with deliciously smoky chicken and perfectly crispy skin. Just adapt your cooking techniques based on whether you're using a grill or a smoker, and you'll be good to go. Happy cooking!
