    Yes If the skin is on it yet, cut it off, but leave some of the fat. Then cut a diamond pattern through the fat cap into the red meat. That way your  seasoning rub & smoke will get through the fat & into the meat, while the fat will baste down to your meat.

  3. I left the skin on once. I did nothing for flavor and it was pretty hard to chew. Now I always take the skin off but leaving as much fat on as possible. Plus leaving the the skin on on stops the rub from getting on the meat.
