    I'm going to have another go at the chicken as mine was Cack the first time around. What temps did you cook at  boys?

    Mine was about 160-170C. I've tried lower temps and never been pleased with the outcome.

  18. Hello.  FINE looking yard birds all!  Glad to see the exchange of ideas and info.  kiska,  Rubber skin.  A problem with chicken!  You have 3 options.  Live with it.  Have a grill ready with REALLY HOT coals and then transfer the the chicken to the grill "slightly" under done to finish and crisp the skin OR same option with a pre heated oven.  FULL blast oven pre heated.  Keep Smokin!
