    I'm no expert and just did my first shoulder. My info would be to start with a small one which ever you chose. IF that goes well then up the size.. My first was a 5lb shoulder..

    Go with the boston butt first... it is very forgiving and there is very little waste...

    Could be just coincidence but ever time I do pulled pork the BUTT does better and tastes better than the picnic. Tho it has all been good at worst.

    The Boston butt just seems to have extra flavor to me.
