IMO - 300 degrees is the only way to go with Chicken in the Amerique, and PRE-HEAT the smoker to 300 degrees. Get the chicken in the oven ASAP and get the door closed again so you retain as much heat as possible inside. A six pound bird takes about four hours at 300 in my Amerique. If you want it faster cut the bird in half.

Keep reading. The problem is one of temp. The smaller CS don't get hot enough. I see your profile that you're from England, Canada. But plenty of smokers that can get over 275 will do a fine job on crisping chicken, pretty much the norm in southern bbq joints.
Thanks for the info mate. A CS is a must one day, for now I just got a new Masterbuilt electric. It does have the features I definitely wanted, proper temp. control, insulation, from reviews it seems 275 is possible with that unit. Some great advice here folks.
