Smoked Chicken!

I have tried it several different ways with different wood. Peach, Cherry, Apple, Oak. Just don't like it. I have let the smoke die way down before putting chicken on. Skin has kinda a funky texture and not real tasty. Chicken is ok I guess, but not as good as without wood. I am going to save my wood for pork from now on!
