Bite threw skin.

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by cruise master, Jun 26, 2012.

  1. Well while the wife was making jam, I had the TV all to myself for a change. So I watched the Pit Masters's marathon. One of the episodes was talking about bite threw on the poultry skin. If the Pit Master didn't acheive it they were downgraded and even a few rude comments were made.  

    My question is how do you acheive bite threw skin? Or another way to put it, what makes the skin tough? I have yet to do poultry (other then some Turkey legs) in my new smoker. I would like to try a turkey breast next when the kids/grandkids come visit, and thought it would be fun to attempt to get "bite threw skin." 
  2. Low and slow is what causes tough skin. I always do poultry at 300' or better and the skin is bite through. The last 30 minutes or so, I run it up to 375'.
