    Yes. pork shoulder is great because of all the fat, it is pretty hard to get it wrong. Low and slow.

    Ditto this!

    I use a remote meat thermometer...
    Watch for that 195deg internal temperature of the meat! Gotta get there for the tender pull apart for pulled pork.

    Low slow, my temperature that I try to maintain is about 225-240. A 17lb or so pork roast will take me about 12 hrs.

    I only smoke with chips for about 1 hr in the beginning.

    I do use a water tray.

    I have used all kinds of smokers, Electric, charcoal and propane. Preference is propane.

    Big Chief's, Little Chiefs I have found do not get up to temperature thus a LLLLOOONNNGGGG time.

    My favorite smoker of all time is this one.

    The Pro's:
    The water tray fits the walls so fat drippings do not make the way down to the flame area.
    The smoker chip tray is fits the walls also.
    Temp control is pretty easy unless the wind is blowing...

    Cons: Only comes with 2 meat racks.

    I always put Aluminum foil in the water tray to keep from making a mess of the water tray...

    After I am through cooking I quickly put the racks in the dish washer and do a wash I do not allow the washer to dry the racks... I remove the racks and clean any residual meat from them.
    Sometimes they come out perfect.

    Smoked a Deer ham Wednesday for about 6 hours. Turned out lovely. Our smoker is a homemade unit (sorry I don't have picture) made from 2 air compressors. One is (the larger one) upright with adjustable racks on a rotisserie and the fire box is a smaller one turned on its side. Pork shoulders are one of my favorites to throw in for a day long cooking. Hard to go wrong

    I'm getting better at it. My pork and ribs are really good. My beef short ribs are outstanding, but I still don't have a handle on the brisket. Right now I am reading a book called "Franklin Barbecue a Meat Smoking Manifesto". I am only 50 pages in but am learning a lot.

    The best part is my Wife's barbecue sauce, it simmers on the stove on low for 4 hours and it is amazing.

    Do all you smoking guys know about the stall?

    It lives and can be one of the most frustrating things about getting the meat to fall off the bone tender!

    The STALL, waiting for the internal meat temp to get to 190deg F.

    Most of us who smoke meat a lot, especially Pork know about this phenomena...
