    Hey there everybody i got a quick question to ask. So i would say i had my brinkmann smoker form about half a year now and this is the smoker i am talking about: http://www.brinkmann.net/products/details.aspx?item=810-7080-K. The problem i am having is that whenever i smoke poultry on this smoker is that whenever it is time to take it off the skin is all rubbery. I smoked 2-3 chickens and 1 turkey and all came out with rubber skin. The inside of the poultry taste moist and really good smoke flavor but the skin like i said is not that great. Does anybody else have problems like this with there brinkmann electric smoker? Is there a way i can not make it have rubber skin? Answers would be great if you have any!

    Throw it on the propane grill for ten mins
    Rubbery skin is just a byproduct of smoked birds. It can't be helped ,you gotta pull it at 150 and finish hot to crisp the skin

    As you can see , the consensus is the the electric smoker can't get hot enough to crisp chicken skin. It's not you , it's the machine. I would suggest the gas grill to finish or as Mule suggested , in the house oven for a few.
