Q: Hello Dr. BBQ,
When cooking chicken thighs or halves, over indirect heat, the skin normally comes out slightly rubbery. What do you suggest, to alleviate this common problem?

A: Hi Jim,
I try to cook my chicken at a higher smoker temp, like around 300°F. That seems to help. The other option is to “finish” the chicken on a hot grill to crisp the skin, with or without sauce. Be careful not to over-cook the chicken if you do this.
