I picked up a boneless pork shoulder at the store today and will get up and smoke it all day tomorrow. I'm thinking about marinating it overnight - any ideas?

Should I do it? If so, what might be good?

I have my stout, dunkelweiss, and apfelwein as possible bases. I do have fresh apples as well which I may put in the water dish.

Any other ideas?

I have never marinated them but I spray them with a mixture of Jack D. and apple juice 50%/50% then dry rub them the night before.

I also like to tie boneless shoulders up with butcher's twine so that it doesn't come apart.

Rub it in yellow mustard, then sprinkle you favorite rub on it liberally. Let it sit overnight, then smoke it. I do mine in Butt Rub!

I like Durkee's rub. I have only found it at Walmart. It has a nice spice and lots of brown sugar.

Any advise offered after 10:00p.m. should be regarded as questionable
I can't brew until something is empty
