How do you get crispy skin on smoked chicken?

Try bumping your temperature up to at least 350 when you smoke it. OR, you can throw it under the broiler for 2-4 minutes once you take it off the smoker. I smoke my chickens at 250 and only use rub or salt/pepper on the skin. Never have much of an issue with crispy skin.

What temperature should smoked chicken be?

Smoked chicken will continue to cook once you take it out of the smoker. To prevent chicken from overcooking, take it out at 160°F so that it will reach the perfect target temp of 165°F by the time you are ready to eat. If you set your smoker to 250°F, estimate the cook time to be about 30 to 45 minutes per pound.
