Chicken Rubber

When slow cooking wings is there a way to make the skin crispy? My chicken skin is always realy rubbery, any suggestions.

I tried the smo-fried wings and didn't think it was worth the trouble.
Grilled wings are good, very good, but frying is the way to go.

The best flavor for extra crispy wings is garlic parmesan....I want my
casket to be filled with garlic parmesan wings in case I ain't dead.

I always brine my wings and they come off with a firm,bite thru, semi crispy skin. i just smoke them at 250* with every thing else. now the other parts of the chicken, i need a stiffer brine to get the good skin texture i get with the wings.

Thanks for the help! I'll try frying them once to see how they come out.

After several years of cooking wings and tasting wings at the various BBQ comps, my personal opinion is they need to be deep fried to be any good.

Best of luck!
I'm planning some for Thurs. Was planning to smoke about an hour then deep fry for a couple of minutes. Does that sound about right?
