Tomorrow i am going to smoke my first hog shoulder. I have a couple of questions. Since the hog is leaner then pork should i leave all the fat on the shoulder or should i trim some off? Do i need to bast it to keep it moist? I understand how everyone is smoking there pork, just a little worried about the hogs meat drying out. I am going to smoke the hog in my UDS. Not sure what wood i want to use yet. Does anyone use mesquite? I have never used mesquite for pork before but yesterday i found a spot to get free mesquite.

Mesquite can be really harsh if you are not getting a clean fire, it can overpower Pork quite easily, personally I like fruit woods with some Oak or Hickory!

I wouldn't trim, and I like to start butts Fat Side Down on my UDS's then after a couple of hours flip it Fat Side UP!

Ok thats what i wanted to know. I will use Hickory and some apple. Smoke the hog between 200-250 degrees. Pull it off at 200 and wrap in foil and let stand for a hour in a cooler. Then pull. Does that sound about right?
