Gonna make some tomorrow using the rangoon style filling I saw in another thread.
No, do not bother for sure. The skin softens, not hardens. Not at all like a fire roasted anaheim, for example.
And, because you are really smoking them low, and they are covered by bacon, it would not blister or harden in any case.
For the record, soem people here claim they get done in an hour. Mine go for two or longer at least.
